I waited all day for the sun to come in the west-facing living room windows and illuminate this bowl of mums. After the dinner on Monday, the woman who had decorated the platform gave me two potted mums which were on their last legs. So I cut off all the flowering stems and put them in this crystal bowl. I love this bowl but only rarely can I find a use for it. It was a wedding present from my uncle.
Clouds started gathering in the west in the afternoon, so I thought I wouldn't get my chance to take pictures yesterday. But after a very brief first-spring-thunderstorm, the sun streamed in!
