Morning Glow…..


This morning was the first where you could imagine that we have turned a seasonal corner…real progress towards spring.  It was the first morning this year where the early morning sun had a warming glow….warm enough to quickly chase away the light frost and mist of dawn.

The weather, apart from being rather out of seasonal character, has still been taking us on a rollercoaster of a ride.. after a downhill run of wet grey days  it was climbing back to sunshine and blue skies…… and as already mentioned a sun with some warmth.


But the magic continues for out of nowhere the woodland Daffodils have burst out of their dormant stupor so I guess it will not be long before their yellow trumpets will grace these woods…..unless of course the weather takes us on another rollercoaster of a ride.

Thoughtful Thursday – Summer will come

On a grey day in mid February with rain and sleet beating against the study window it is nice to think ahead to those sunny summer days
