We sure do need some colour Ronnie, good idea well composed and hits the mark today for many I feel, it's a bleak day here snowing from the heavens.

What a very pleasant place to sit and catch up all the news, Ronnie.
It does indeed bring brightness into a very dreich day, as you so rightly say.

Very bright and cheerful, Ronnie, bright here today but still a howling wind, which is hampering my insect photography somewhat Sad Carol

How lovely seeing this flower-filled corner of a garden and can think of little better than sitting in a quiet, sheltered spot to relax and read. The colours are glorious in this fine image. I am about to head through to my own "reading room", coffee to hand. Blizzard doing nicely outside!!Sad

Patiently waiting for his wife but well equipped with a book
in lovely surroundings.
I do want to give him a cushion thought so he can sit back.
The flowers are wonderful - a bit of colour is just what we need.

What a cracking spot for a quiet read Ronnie. It looks a lot warmer there than here this morning with three inches of snow just cleared off the drive. Lovely and colourful area for a well taken shot.

A lovely colourful, well composed candid shot, Ronnie!
I always wondered how the word 'dreich' was spelt - Andrew Marr(hope he's feeling better!) often uses it when the weather's not so good!!

Judging by the bric-a-brac on the bench beside him, I would say he's not alone. I think his wife has gone to get tea or coffee while he reads a chapter of his book! Well observed makes for a really great candid Ronnie!

A very colourful composition Ronnie, I take it this is your back garden and conservatory. I must say it looks very well kept and a pleasant place to sit and relax on a rare fine day
