After days of record-breaking heat, today dawned gray and cool; blessed relief! Some people bemoan our gray days, but I prefer gray/cool to sunny/hot, and find gray days better for photographing nearly everything. Like this colorful front corner of our house:
Here's close-up of that orange flower at the bottom of the photo, which I posted on Instagram earlier this week:

A few more photos taken this morning in the kind light of an overcast sky:
It was also a good day to capture my one grey Shetland's marvelous marbling post-shearing:

Finally, did you know there is a "grey area" in "Shetland" wool/yarn/textiles? Here is a link to a Jamieson & Smith blog post highlighting the industry use of the term "Shetland wool." Buyer beware: Not all "Shetland Wool" is from Shetland sheep!

That's it for today from . . .

I've been enjoying these cool grey days.

Bardot's coloring is fascinating!
