It is 5.45 pm and there is still some light in the sky.
The evenings are starting to draw out.
Now the scaffolding has moved from our house to next door’s house, I have put my bench back in its rightful place overlooking the garden.
When the wind blows, the scaffolding sings – to night Gales of up to 75 mph are predicted, so I am expecting an opera.
Bitingly cold to-day, and grey. Although we walked today – it was so dark, that only a few of the pictures that I took came out, and they are destined for my other blog. So I have treated myself to another shot from yesterdays sunset.
A view of the mountains and the sand dunes after the sun had set.
Grey days in January are the pits.
Oh Yes … I am afraid it is!
We have really had the most wonderful weather for the past three weeks. Although cold – it has certainly been down to -5 c a couple of time during the night. The days have been glorious. Clear sky, sunshine during the day, no wind and no rain.
It has certainly made up for the dire summer – which I really hope will not be repeated this year.
Another New Year! While the new year may be exciting and full of potential – it is not a time of year that I am particularly fond of … but as I get older – I am learning to appreciate it.
I see dancing women – what do you see in the trees at Sunset?
Fabulous day to-day – perhaps we should have gone for a walk! Instead a we had a long and leisurely lunch with family and friends.
Sea-Fever by John Masefield is one of my favourite poems. When I went to the beach this afternoon the lines;-
“I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky …..“
Seemed so very apt.
Today has been wet, miserable, cold, and all together horrid.
So this black and white picture from yesterday reflects my mood to a T
Grey and Depressing.
Went up on to the roof to check on work (we are having a new roof) and this is the view from the top.
