Sunshine: 31 Days of Abundance, Day Twenty Three

We are in the middle of an extended hot spell in the UK which is making our summer of 2014. It is fabulous, plenty of sunshine (and thunderstorms too) and no sign of it ending for at least ten days yet. Yee ha! It makes such a difference to our happiness quotient.
