When the sun came out



This has been a winter of monotony, a winter that has outstayed its welcome and then some.  Whilst I would not swap our four seasons for anything and truly believe each season has its merits it has to be said that right now, as the days grow longer, the joy of lighting the fire each evening and unfolding the blankets is losing its pleasure.




So when the sun suddenly, and oh so very occasionally, breaks through the cloud it is important to stop what you are doing and soak it up.




That glorious light catching on the table pot of flowers.  Illuminating the edges of pictures,  searching through the kitchen, dust sparkling in its rays.





It is so good to know that it is out there, climbing higher by the day and soon, surely soon, it will win out against winter and light up our days once more.

I cannot wait - this grey murk is sapping every ounce of my energy.

It is getting beyond a joke now. Today at least is lovely though, so we are making the most of it before the rain and sleet return. Argh.

beautiful pictures and yes I am so ready for Spring to be here. It has been a long, long winter this year

Little by little, winter is making its departure. We even had a light snowfall last night...but this morning's warm enough to banish its traces.

Over here in the States we cut over to Daylight Savings Time several weeks ago...much earlier than in past weeks. It's fun to see the afternoon light linger just a bit longer every day.

Oh, it's good to see you back. I know what you mean about the lack of sunshine, I too am longing to see it.

Willow said...

Lovely primrose. Yes, it's great to see you and the sun back.

The sun broke through today, so briefly and my spirits lifted for those few minutes, almost disproportionately. We all need some sun, so badly.

It shone for five minutes here today ... on the snow!
