A Late September Afternoon in the Peak District….


We were lucky enough to manage a walk in the Derbyshire Peak District.  Late afternoon but a September autumnal sun shone. It had taken most of the day for the sun to break through the morning mist, a mist that lingered for most of the day.  Clear skies and that mist was not the best of lighting for landscapes…..  but frankly we were not bothered, it was just nice to be out enjoying some invigorating fresh air.

Not quite a Rain Forest Atmosphere … but nearly


Early morning in the The Palm House at Kew Botanical Gardens, London, is perhaps the nearest, here in the UK. we will get to a Tropical Rain Forest.

But there were occasions this last week, when we could be forgiven for thinking that our weather was heading in that direction. 

Still nice to dream and recall memories of a great day out.

Maybe the need to dream is even more important in these strange times…

Please Remember ….

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