Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
OK, no kittens…
but plenty of raindrops on lilies
and these are a few of my favourite things…
Today is the March equinox – the spring (vernal) equinox in the northern hemisphere when the length of the daylight hours equal the length of the night hours (well almost…) and is the beginning of spring according to astrological belief. This year it is also a date for a total solar eclipse and a super moon and the International Day of Happiness! Let the good times begin…

Glorious images, Jude!
Thanks Sue – last year in Kent 🙂
It rained here today too. 🙂
Lovely spring pics, Jude. 🙂
As I coincidentally mentioned to Gallivanta recently, let’s not forget whiskers on photographers.
Thanks for bringing to our attention the International Day of Happiness, which I’d never heard of. The article at
says it was created in 2012, so it’s still pretty new.
Who’s the dark flutist?
I’d never heard of the day either, but it seemed appropriate to add it to the list 😀
As for the flautist, I have no idea, the garden was full of sculptures (one of which I coveted) but the prices were somewhat eye-watering.
Ah, so you flouted the flautist.
Flutist / flautist – another case where we don’t share a common language 😉
Actually in my first comment I’d thought about writing fl(a)utist because both versions exist in American English. Flautist is fancier and used primarily by classical musicians, while flutist is more of an everyday word.
In that case I ought to use flutist, but my English language spell-check is going to object – again!
Stunning images. I wondered about the statue too, and the answer above has led me to your other blog. Sigh….I see my life increasingly disappearing into a flurry of bog reading!
It’s hard isn’t it? So much good stuff out there…
