You Are My Sunshine

Finally after days of gloomy weather and rain last week, we had sunshine, glorious bright, clear and wonderful sunshine. It was a perfect day, in the mid 60's and I took the opportunity to visit our Minnesota Landscape Arboretum. Because of our odd spring you see the crab apples, lilacs and tulips are all blooming together which is somewhat unusual.

I captured some sunshine brightened blooms and saved them for a rainy day, which lately seems like every day! Even after a gloomy, cold and rainy weekend we are having another gloomy rainy day! So even though last week I had work to be done with the upcoming weekend and house-guests, I took a break and I'm sure glad I did. Hope you enjoy these photos, feel free to pin them to your pinterest boards if you wish.

What kind of things could make you play hooky from your other obligations?


  1. Diane - how did you know that this is a favorite song? My mom used to sing it to me when I was small. Your pictures are gorgeous. So nice to see the sunshine after all the winter you have had. Enjoy my friend. Thanks for sharing.

  2. It’s wet and cold again today, but your post made me believe that sunshine must be on the way. I love your beautiful photos and the music, thank you.

  3. Beautiful photos! So colourful and cheery. Everything seemed to bloom at the same time around here, too. I think with springing taking so long to kick in, the plants just leaped forward first chance they got!

  4. Thanks for the beautiful photos! I have the biggest smile on my face! And, I love the background music too ;o) What could make me play hooky? Exactly what you were doing! Enjoying mother earth ;o) Hugs ;o)
