All it takes is a few minutes of sunshine to make the day remarkable. The wind was blowing ferociously this morning. In the afternoon, the rain came down in sheets. The chickens spent much of the day huddled under the trees. Late in the afternoon the clouds lightened, and streaks of blue appeared in the west. Golden rays of sunshine poured through, making the daffodils glow. Flowers look most beautiful after the rain, with sunshine dancing on their rain drops.
