A Bright Start……after the rains

May-Dawn-over-the-Lake

A May Dawn over Allestree Lake, Derbyshire

Calm and sunny over the Lake this morning….it makes a welcome change from the past few days of rain.  Yesterday we didn’t think it would ever stop but overnight we have had a miraculous change for the better.  We better not get complacent as we are told the rain is returning tomorrow.

Looking down over part of the woodland the horizon is still shrouded with an early morning mist.   Hawthorn Blossom seems to have survived the heavy rain and is still imparting its distinctive spring smell mixing beautifully with the equally distinctive fresh scents of spring.

    • Yesterdays rain was indeed very heavy…but perhaps I exaggerated by calling it a Monsoon. By our UK standards it certainly was but I am very much aware that your monsoons are the real thing and can be very damaging and dangerous.
