The morning walks are now being taken with the the sunrise - very light. This morning I was taken with how the sunlight coming at an oblique angle was lighting small blossoms, leaves etc.
It was a bit early for this visitor to be on the wing which meant I was able to enjoy its presence without disturbing it.
We are off to Japans it could be a good omen that the new growth on our Japanese maples is a deep red - catching the early morning light beautifully
It won't be too long before the summer light is waking us at about 4-4.30am.
