Last Friday was gloriously sunny and mild and stayed that way all day until about 7 pm. Saturday and Sunday mornings were both lovely too warm enough to enjoy coffee outside and had the temperature stayed the same I’d been thinking that maybe lunch outside wasn’t impossible – but then the wind got up, and the afternoon, evening and night were cold, wet and windy. Monday was worse, although that seemed impossible with torrential rain, coming in under the front door and forcing its way through the windows; chairs on the terrace were blown over, thrown over says it better. Last evening I saw the sky was clear and wondered if the night would be cold. Yes, I awoke to see a heavy frost which thankfully thawed very quickly giving a glorious morning but now, nearly 2pm it has clouded over again and I think it will rain yet again!
All the images have that strange bright light that seems unreal. There is lots of green and the slope looks full of energy.
Are you invigorated by a warm winter’s day. The weather has been atrocious everywhere this week; strong winds added to the rain so perhaps this week it has been better to stay indoors or have you braved the elements and found some useful job outside. I pruned the wisteria on the front terrace so now I’m just waiting for the buds to swell and the excitement to begin.
