A Frosty Start

This morning started clear, bright but frosty up here. A beautiful blue sky but only 5C with a sparkling white lawn.

We had no idea that the south of the UK was being lashed by Storm Alex.

I drove into Peel, admiring the sun reflecting off the calm sea and spent an uneventful morning volunteering in the gift shop as usual.

Now back at home looking out onto a clear, almost wind-less garden with late afternoon sun slanting through the window, keeping fingers crossed that Alex passes us by.  Please.

  1. You are so fortunate to have a view like that from the back of your house and I guess that it is always changing. I imagine you sitting in that chair reading "The Isle of Man Railway: The Outline History of the Isle of Man Railway Including the Manx Northern Railway and the Foxdale Railway (1905-94) v. 2 (British Narrow Gauge Railway)"

    1. Thanks YP. I must put that book on my Christmas list.
      The view. Yes, although our house is most decidedly not smart or chic in any way, I take great joy from just sitting here looking out at the hills and the sea. As you say, it is always changing with the seasons and the capricious weather.

  3. I'm crossing my fingers for a few more days of sunshine for you. Nafplio was brilliant today. We had a docs appointment and then sat, as you saw, at a table on the pavement, had a half litre of wine and watched the locals.
    It's nice to see all that green but it needs sunshine as well as rain and so do you

    1. There is definitely a bite to the air now. Autumn has arrived.

  5. Your chair, the view, sunshine, the clarity of that air, the idea that it might actually be cold out there.... to die for!
