The Morning started well….but then went back to sleep


Over the Gate…A February morning

The morning started well, a blue sky that was slightly wispy, not a breath of wind and a touch of haze on the horizon…..OK the sun did appear, albeit rather weak, but the day still had promise.

By lunch time the day had gone back to sleep.  Not sure how to describe it, but the haze did thicken,  never really became thick enough to be called a mist. It also had a strange effect on the colour of the weak sun. Even at midday it had that warm glow you would normally associate with dusk..  dusk without a sunset….well it was midday!


Strange maybe which just added to the February mornings feel for a brisk winter walk…


When evening arrived a change in mood of the weather occurred.  Heavy rain and high winds….and more predicted.

6th February

  1. A glorious day it seems – before going back to sleep. Thank you for cheering me up! Not much sun here now, but we had a couple of lovely winter days before the rain. Today it is the greyest of grey.

  2. Eric arrived here/ Very wet. Also coming over here. Not all of him, but just his tail. That’s quite enough though. 😀
    Did you know that Eric has a different name in Germany? They call him Thomas. But it’s the same LOW. At least we will get lots and lots and lots of rain ‘they’ said. Evenso, we still haven’t had enough to make up for last dry summer. I believe it’s the same in Derbyshire? Have a wonderful day all of you.
