Good Morning Spring! Weekly Photo Competition

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/04/photo-challenge-morning/

My friends would have seen the drought and the bush fires in our region on my blog over the last few weeks. It is hot, and extremely dry in October in the Bushveld region of South Africa. There is one thing that we need above all else. And last night it started to happen! We had the first lovely thunder shower. Now I do not have the skill to take beautiful pictures of thunder storms.

But this morning- we woke up to a brand new world! Everything is crisp and clean, there is already new life visible in nature all around us. So I just had to grab one of the cameras and take another picture or two for this challenge. So, fresh from my garden, I present:  Morning in Spring:
