Just realised that yesterday was the shortest day!

So it's the beginning of the end of dark afternoons, it'll be camping season again before we know it.



Bring on those long summer evenings!

Cheers!

Ian

Pretty nice here today. Dry, and the sun is shining. Definitely feels Spring-like

Yesterday was just plain dreich, so I missed the last Winter Solstice full moon likely to occur in my lifetime; today is bright and mildish with just a few showers - a very fitting contrast, now the year has turned towards teh light. I have a few confused sprigs of ceanothus still flowering, a few periwinkle and primula, and in the greenhouse there's a pelargonium strutting its stuff. Lots of little green bulb noses are poking through the earth too; my daughter a few miles away (on sandier soil) has snowdrops in flower!
I daresay there'll be a cold snap or two to come, but roll on spring!

Not a bad day here today, but I'm so glad the longer days are coming. I detest winter!

Been a good day here, too and the Cold Moon is spectacular. In a way, when we get the cold clear days, I love winter as the light is amazing and low sun and dead vegetation pick up some very different views.

Yes, it's a bit of a struggle to find beauty in a day like today, I grant you! It does make the fairy lights seem brighter though. Good day to tidy the kitchen cupboards... The main beauty of the day was found in the steaming bowl of home-made cock-a-leekie I had for my tea, I think.

The date is always a reminder for me of Pan Am 103 falling out of the sky at Lockerbie, 30 years ago. Less than 10 minutes later, if the bomb hadn't gone off, we'd have seen the plane overhead as our train went past Prestwick Airport, going home from our office Christmas party.
But yes, I saw my first snowdrops flowering today, long stalks & big flowers beside a carpet of tiny pink Cyclamen. Spring is coming.

I have always been a bit suspicious of cock-a-leekie soup
