Following constant downpours while I was responding to a challenge on facebook to post a nature picture every day for seven days, and a severe gale last night, this morning dawned bright and calm.
Knowing that it couldn’t last, I set out after breakfast for my usual toddle round the village. I hoped to find early signs of violets, but had to make do with nettles in flower and some triangular stripey leaves of I know not what.
I knew it couldn’t last, the sky is now all cloud, and more gales are expected soon. I’m glad I made the most of the morning, and now I’m making bread while pondering the next stage of my current scrappy quilt project.
