They did shimmer when the sun shone. Just got the washing out this morning and then had to bring it all back in as the rain started. It's out again and almost dry in the brisk, chilly wind. We always bump into our friends both human and canine on our wander to the Beck. Gorgeous George in the extra posed very nicely for me. I will get this printed for them - they recently paid £38 for one studio portrait of him!
