A Cold Light this Morning….but still very welcome.
A new month…..March seems to have arrived rather quickly. It also started well. After all the dark, wet, windy and frankly dismal days, today started with blue skies and a bright but watery sun. The meteorologists always keen to lets us know that it is the start of their Spring…..those of us who do know better recognise that the astrological Spring is still a little way off.
The sun did do its very best to add colour to the woods but the rains have rather knocked the life out of the vegetation that had managed to survive the winter. It was though fresh and rather invigorating to be out and about, so peaceful that the call of spring was clearly in the birds songs.
The but and its a BIG BUT is that those meteorologists that were bragging about the arrival of Spring , were also full of foreboding and gloom. More low pressure and heavy rains with strong winds are due again….much sooner than we would like.
