July 1st……Summer

Cumbria-9-8-_357

The Perfect Summers Day…

The bright morning sun in a gin clear Blue sky, glinting across the water and turning the new Oak leaves into green jewels of summer, the breeze just enough to create a light ripple on the Lake.  

Idyllic, you bet.  Just a shame that this July 1st it isn’t a reality.  Rain and grey skies again. Time is running out for summer to kick in….just hope that it does.

  1. We have been much more fortunate in the Pacific Northwest USA. Temps have been in the 25-27c range, with overcast skies in the morning, clearing to bright sunny afternoons. Sorry you are getting soaked!

    • I am just hoping that f this wet theme continues, that the bright intervals eventually become longer and develop ultimately in a great autumn. We have lots of leaf growth this year, the trees are full and its been mild to warm so we have the makings.
