Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflection

Summer is here with a vengance, it has been a few years since we had consistently hot weather and predictions over the weekend were for a week of temperatures in the high thirties (celsius). Yesterday was hot, air conditioned offices were a blessing and the storm that hit last night a huge relief. We had put up some of the Christmas fairy lights on Sunday afternoon, solar powered of course, and as the rain poured down, I noticed that water pooling on the pavers allowed for a colourful reflection of lights that we stuck in the garden. Tonight there is no such relief, today reached 39 degrees and overnight we’ll only see the temperature drop to about 24 degrees and there is no rain predicted so no more funky, colourful reflections.

    That’s such a beautiful picture! It’s almost winter here, so I like the idea of summer too… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Those reflections really are funky. Great picture. 39 – couldn’t bare it. That’s just too hot for me. Somehow, our summer seems to have forgotten it’s supposed to be hear and we’ve been having low 20’s and rain – weird.

      Thanks, I like funky ๐Ÿ™‚

      Yeah, 39 is pretty hot but thankfully it dropped to 33 today, we haven’t had really hot summers for a few years and I hope we don’t get the 40+ days of previous summers. The last few summers have been wet, lower temps but lots of rain and flooding – not sure which is worse.
