Hello Cathy! "chuffed" is definitely a good thing!! It is one of many slightly odd ways us Brits use to describe a happy state of mind.
Thanks for adding me to your favourites... It is grand to know that you enjoy checking out the photos. I wish you the best for what is left of the weekend...

Hi Steve it looks like you captured a tropical downpour good image ...Haggs...

Steven Stoddart on August 26, 2010

Hiya Haggs - A very 'April Showers' day if I recall.. The combination of the rain and the Cardoon does give it a 'tropical' air.. I had not thought about it in those terms...

Hi Steve....good shot, I like so much this effect of the falling rain...well done! Happy Christmas from Italy Samy

Hiya Samy! How can it be anything other than uplifting when having a chat with someone called "Breathing Spirit" : )

Even in this weather (it is below freezing here!) this reminds me of how rain on the day this was taken was so refreshing.. It seems a lifetime ago now but it had been hot and dry for a long time when this rain came.. everything seemed to come to life after the rain had stopped.

Now, in mid-winter, all is very quiet. The garden is in a deep sleep and waiting for Spring. That said, I like the cold and the snow...

Thanks for your visit! And for your appreciation of this shot - both are very welcome!

Wishing you and yours, a Happy Christmas and peaceful New Year...
