Thoreau, Hailstones and A Rainbow

1  This quotation came my way today, courtesy of a fellow blogger, unexpected in common hours. Go and have a look at what she writes . I like the sentiment herein.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams and endeavours to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”

– Henry David Thoreau

2   There were so many short sharp hail showers today that I feared for the little Tete a Tete daffodils but they have survived.

3  Coming away from the supermarket today (another first since my op, shopping on my own!) there were very dark clouds and suddenly and briefly a rainbow, very bright against the so dark cloud. I was in the car park so pulled over quickly and caught this photo. The next moment it was gone.  Such is the way of rainbows!
