Dawn to Dusk

Hi, hope you’re all having a great festive season! We’ve been having beautiful sunrises and sunsets in amongst the gales and torrential sideways rain (including, not one but two interesting indoor water features!) so here’s a couple of photos… early morning and early evening, I couldn’t bring myself to take pics of the water features!Dawn to DuskDawn to Dusk

Merry Christmas!

MidwinterMuch as I love wrapping up warm, cosy winter nights, snowy days (if we’re lucky!) and the Yule time celebrations I did find myself flicking through a seed catalogue the other day and daydreaming about all the wonderful plants we could grow next year, so… wholeheartedly welcoming back the sun!¬†Midwinter

WaitingWaiting patiently for a spot at the bird table.

East to West

East to WestThe little specks in the sky (not just another excuse to post a sunset!) are I think rooks – every day they go west at 7.30 in the morning and the at 4.30 they go east – you could set your clocks by them, or use them as a wake up call – they are a little noisy.East to West

Good morning

Hope you have a lovely day too.Good morning
