The weather here in Indiana has been quite gloomy for the last month.  I’m starting to get a bit discouraged.  I hate to complain when there are farmers who desperately need rain, but we have had too much.  Farms in the northern part of the state have had 34 inches in the last month!  Luckily, the flowers on our patio are in full bloom, which helps brighten the days a little.  I have a ton of butterflies this year also, which I love!  I broke out my close-up lenses the last sunny day we had and snapped a few pictures.

If the weather conditions are gloomy where you live, I hope you find something that brightens your day!
