And the Day Didn’t Wake Up !

Swan-at-Dusk3

We lived in hope yesterday that the day would wake up……but it didn’t.  Just before sundown, when the sun would be low, it did try to peak above the horizon to give just a hint of warm colour to what had been a milky grey day. The lone Swan on the lake enjoyed its solitary evening paddle.  Today, Friday looks no better, just dull grey and very still.

Flippant Friday ……. What came First the Chicken or the Egg?

Tree-and-Stables-2

The old conundrum I suspect has a more obvious answer here…The Tree or the Stables?  Well both have been standing here for some considerable time but I guess it was the Stables that were here first…. No doubt the roots of the tree are now well and truly intermingled with the stable foundations….so Chicken or Egg? Well I guess that now, they too will always be inseparable!
