|April Showers - Sapling|
I’ve been enjoying a few days off in this Easter week, catching up on some home jobs and some rest. The weather has been a more extreme version of typical April, bright sunshine and showers, but coming in the form of beautiful clear skies in the morning and torrential downpours in the afternoon.

Today was more extreme than the preceding days; cool blue clear skies this morning and thunderstorms with hail in the afternoon, capped off with low golden sunshine punching under dark clouds in the evening.

I happened to be out both this morning and this evening running errands, and so there good opportunities to break my journeys and take advantage of the different light throughout the day. The pictures taken in the rain were difficult to take. Despite hiding under my Storm Umbrella, the rainfall was so fierce that I could only make them in a quick dash.

By the evening the storms had run their course, the winds abated and the sun came out for a final burst of glory. Time to go out into garden and check the damage, which fortunately was only a small amount of leaf fall.
