What a difference the sun makes! I had reserved a turkey at one of the farmers' market stands, and this morning I drove towards Elkhart to pick it up. I went over some of the same roads as yesterday. What was bland gray then was transformed by sunshine. And yesterday's non-stop rain left everything feeling fresh and bright.
Back home again, as I carried the turkey in to the house, the sunshine highlighted a thriving violet by the corner of the garage. The plant has obviously been there awhile, but I've never noticed it before. And now, at the end of November, it's blooming. Surprise!
