Finally we have had some rain in the UK, it feels strange being pleased about it raining - but after such an extended period of incredibly hot dry weather the downpour was a relief - we even had some hail mixed in with Thunder and Lightening. Ironically it is still as hot as some of the best summers we have had - just not the thirty plus degrees Celsius we have been suffering from recently.
The rain was interspersed with periods of sun, so I even got to see a Rainbro , @saffisara tried to kid me it's a Rainbow - but I know a Rainbro 🤛🏽 when I see one.
With the rain we have not been out much, but I did head out around the neighbourhood for supplies and grabbed some pictures while I was out. @bluemoon pointed out previously my photographs are bigger then a laptop screen - so I'm trying that trick where you have a reduced size version and can click it to pop out a full size one. I had to look up how to do it, the first post I found explaining was how to make your pics big when clicked and it had to be by @old-guy-photos because he really does know all the tricks.
So I walked the streets of my neighbourhood taking photos of some of the prettiest flowers I could find in gardens, you have to wonder what people think about a random stranger talking photos of their gardens. I did find going into the gardens can make them a tad salty.."Ere, what ya doin in me flower beds", "I'm talking photographs of your flowers to post on Steemit", "Steeming? I'm fuming get orff me dalias or you'll be extracting my boot from your backside".
I decided to resort to my now favourite photograph - "middle of the road", where I risk life and limb to get you these incredible road shots. It made me think we should get "Danger Rewards" proportional to how much physical danger the post creator was in while producing their Steemit post.
Ok, so I'm actually on a pedestrian refuge so this isn't THAT dangerous, although you never know when someone who's garden I have trampled might be driving up the road and see me as a potential target!
Look, they are coming at me both ways - this is extreme cutting edge posting, you don't see this level of risk taken every day on Steemit to get an original photograph.
This BMW driver had practically stopped by the time he was along side me, I could not work out if he was bemused at my unusual photography angle or another gardener with a grudge. Time to beat a hasty retreat!
It's another 🌈🤛🏽 with this day of sun and rain.
Some more flowers, these were definitely on the street 😉
Berries! Gotta love the twig and berries. Let's get a close up.
And some yellow flowers, quite pretty I thought.
Let's finish up with a #FunkyEdit of the rainy weather yesterday
#SublimeSunday done, all it takes is you, something that takes photographs and a little time to go and find something to photograph.

The greatest challenge we face on Steemit is getting our posts seen, I have always believed the simplest and best value way of doing this is by commenting on the blog posts of others, the more you engage people and interact with them the greater the chance they will visit your own blog and return the favour. Other then spending all my free time commenting on Steemit posts, I also distribute coffee roasting machines and also espresso coffee machines and roast my own Speciality Coffee Range. being one of the premium coffee suppliers Yorkshire including a wide range of filter coffee sachets
