Thunder….. Sunshine…… Thunder


As the sun went down yesterday evening the Thunder Clouds gave us some dramatically creative shapes…..  the warning was there as they built up a massive thunderhead.  But  rather surprisingly it passed us bye.

So Sunday brought a misty start but  another humid sunny day.  The roads seemed very busy so we stayed local.   No hardship as the meadows and the woods gave variety to the days walk.  As for the garden, well the insects were very busy, making the most of the warmth to stretch their wings…. 

Apart from the roads being busy, so was our local park.  Car Park bursting, crowds covering the main fields far busier than I can ever remember.  Now whilst is great for folk to get out and share the great outdoors and who can blame them after our lockdown.  Still, in theory, in place but now it seems widely ignored….. what now  seems to have become a habit is the  leaving of litter.  It is as if CV19 threat has numbed the brains, it is now a habit and a bad one…. just dump the litter someone else will deal with it!

Now back to the thunder.  Today it has been different.  No warning just a surprise downpour and a rather noisy thunderstorm….   No lightning to speak off  just the noise and rain.  5.30pm and the sky looks like midnight…..


Luckily we had just got home nice and dry.  No matter what the weather give us….

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
