The sun

Today I've seen the sun. It seems like the first time in a very long time. I was convinced this would be a splendid summer after the endless rain of 2007 and 2008. How wrong I was! Yes we did have a few nice days in June, but then what happened? And, I do have to admit, it has been warmer than last year, when I never made it out of my thermals, but when I'm reminded of how lovely it can be here I do get a bit nostalgic for when we used to have summers......

This is what lies just outside our house. I know we're lucky. How many people have something like this quite literally on their doorstep? Oh, but how I wish it looked so blue just a little more often.

  1. Love the wind turbine! It has been sweltering here today too - although we have had a good summer. We haven't had enough rain - none to speak of for months - the grass is yellow!
