Winter sunrise

I never cease to be amazed at the colours here. Even in winter – which I associate with grey, bleached, pale, grimy colours – there is a vibrancy which never ceases to make me stop and look again. That’s what happened with this sunrise, bleary-eyed I was waiting for the kettle to boil for the first cup of tea of the day, when I looked out of the window and saw this. Bonita! 

5 to remember

Watch… early morning sun and breeze in the big walnut tree

This is my favourite time of day, before breakfast, sitting on the terrace with a cup of tea, looking south and watching the sun creep its way around the valley from the east. The sun, the shadows, the rippling of the leaves, the peace and quiet…
