Cool subtle lit morning for a walk

The morning sky was totally free of cloud. It was good for a cool morning and soft light; but suggested a hot day ahead.

Many of the plants and blossoms, such as the gardenia above, had gathered as much moisture as the could from the evening air; but that would burn off quite quickly.

A few images follow.

As predicted the day became very hot - not great to do manual work in even in the later part of the afternoon.


  1. Happy New Year !!

    I pray you and yours to peace.   And, Peace of the earth.
