Sometimes just when you think you’ll never see Helios again – like he has grown weary of illuminating and heating Earth and her creatures – voilà, there he is once more.

He simply decides to grace our marble again and rain (reign) down on some of the prettiest of us.

These rhododendrons in Suresnes, France were the recipients of his magnanimity on this weekend day.

Lucky flowers!

(But I stole some of the rays for myself, too. I even pocketed a few for use on a rainy day.)

I hope y’all had a beautiful, sun-filled weekend.
