Raining Bank Holiday

As usual in England, it's law for a bank holiday to be rainy and cold. I've just put the heating on and we've decided that the planned trip to the arboretum is simply out of the question - even if we all wore our wellies and long rain coats!

Here's a picture of the glorious, holly flowers I took only yesterday in the sunshine - hesitant and barely there - but sunshine, nevertheless. Today these flowers are drowning and drooping.

William James once said, Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.


Ha! I don't think he'd heard about the British law about rain on bank holidays!

Such pretty flowers. I know, I often think pretty weather is only for workdays and week ends get hit by stormy weather. lol
