Sunshine is good for the soul

Spring flowers double their dazzling yellows.Magical, enchanted summer scenes.Autumn leaves aglow.And even in the depths of winter,a little moss illuminates the grey.Frost and rain bring sparkling radiance,and the Gorse flowersblaze brightly on the hill.The sun will shine again. Inspired by the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: the sun will come out tomorrow.

On the Hook, 3/10/20

Autumn is coming

Even though I love the spring (and summer), I am looking forward to the autumn arriving. The house feels more cosy and inviting with the heating on and lights glowing in the dark. We’ll snuggle under blankets and I’ll crochet more warm things. In the day time I’ll be able to go for walks andContinue reading “Autumn is coming”

Anticipation

I do of course enjoy what’s around me right now, but often when walking round the garden or in the countryside I’m looking for signs of what’s coming next.
