We have had miserable, cold and rainy weather here for the past few days, including temperatures that went down to freezing. On Saturday, however, we did have a break in the clouds and a little sun came out lighting these delightful japonica blossoms. We have one bush with deep red flowers, but this pink one is almost hidden near the end of the drive, under an evergreen and often goes unnoticed. Just looking at the warm colour of this soft pink made me feel a bit more cheery. I hope it does the same for you. This posting was made yesterday but, although the photograph appeared, the text did not. So I am reposting in hopes that it was a temporary glitch.
