Sunrise and Beautiful Blooms

I thought I'd share with you a couple of things which made me smile recently; a sunrise and some gorgeous wildflowers. It's good to spread a bit of cheerfulness, and I love to share the natural beauty of Wales with you :)

First of all...the sunrise! I must admit that I really dislike getting up in the morning when it's still dark. It feels so unnatural; when the days get shorter and the early mornings get darker I really struggle. It's like my brain still thinks it's the middle of the night and I just want to close my eyes and go back to sleep.

Earlier in the week, I had to get up a little earlier than usual. I pressed snooze a couple of times, which was followed by a mad rush to get ready before hitting the road with a flask of strong coffee.

And then....

then I saw the most beautiful sunrise over Mumbles!

I decided to stop for a moment and I'm really glad that I did. A sunrise is so fleeting, and just for a second it made me forget about the struggle of getting up when it's still dark.

Another of my favourite things about Summer are the beautiful blooms of wildflowers. I recently went for an evening run and I discovered all these wildflowers growing literally 2 minutes away from my front door! They were so lovely that I decided to pop back later in the week to take some photos.
Aren't they lovely? As I was snapping away in the morning sun, one of my neighbours stopped his car and told me that he'd done exactly the same thing; the flowers were so beautiful that he'd stopped to take some photos :) I found it so relaxing to spend 15 minutes or so taking pictures and watching the bumble bees go from one flower to another.

Have a great week! Angharad x

  2. That sunrise is so gorgeous!! I'm a big fan of waking up early too to take pictures of the sunrise when I'm at home since my parents live on the ocean!


    1. Hi Courtney! I agree; a sunrise over the sea is so beautiful to look at :)
