Nothing bright and beautiful round here at the moment! Even the rides on the pier look dull!

No-one with a nice bright red nose from a cold?  ;D

Fruit can be very bright, just about any packaging, adverts in shop windows or hoardings etc. Flowers are nice too though.

You can have our northern hemisphere winter any day soon. -6C here this morning in South West France. I'd rather have the 40C, running the AC is cheaper than running the heating  ;) and the pool is a bit on the nippy side just at the moment. . .

Seriously, I love having the seasons with such wild temperature swings. Helps to make life more interesting. At least that's what my psychiatrist says.

I am an autumn/spring person in truth. Doing step aerobics in 40+ is not the most pleasant way to spend an hour lol. But its what makes the world turn around I suppose at least both extremes are only for a short period of time and you know there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Are you anywhere near Villardebelle?

i have to say, this theme has generated some really interesting entries so far.
It's gonna be another of those toss of coin votes again unless OldBoy, Jim or Dave are holding onto one their aces  :-\
