A Post a Day Photo Challenge – June 08 2015

Days like today in South Dorset really do make you glad to be alive.

It was a beautiful sunny early summer morning as I went out to walk the dogs today.  It is delightfully warm, not hot.  I don’t like the heat.  In my eyes it was a simply perfect morning, the colours are stunning at this time of year.

At long last the rhododendrons have come into full bloom, to me they are about a months late, especially as many of them started to bud during a very mild spell back in march.

I didn’t have my camera with me so a couple of iPhone shots will have to suffice.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
