In Need Of A Day Brightener

Ugh.  It’s wet, cool, windy, sloppy, and gray this morning — so crappy that even our hardy canine duo quickly did their duty and then pulled relentlessly toward home.  For the human on the stroll, the challenge of managing two leashes and a buffeted umbrella while trying to tie off a full dog poop bag and getting coated by wind-blown rain wasn’t exactly a shining start to the day, either.

We need a day brightener!  I’m going with this picture of the mass of orange and yellow flowers spilling from one of our flowerbeds, taken on a bright sunny day last weekend.
