June 1st, our official first day of winter, heralded in with a frost, and another this morning.The grass sparkled like there were diamonds scattered on it.Gradually the sun rose, shining its warmth onto the trees in succession. My shadow shows the bulky layers, merino underwear, fleece pants and jacket, and the best top layer to be made, a pure wool Swandri. Fleece hat, and merino neck-warmer. Where are my gloves?? I need to find some that are made for photographers or rifle shooters!!!
View to the North-East, sunshine through the smoke from the wood fire.
My shadow photo was taken almost here, as the sun made the agapanthus leaves a brilliant almost lime-green.
This is further to the right of the previous photos. Cherry Blossom trees ,the leaves look almost pink, as the sun turns the brown to red. Just behind them, a small Azalea hedge, with bright pink flowers.
The Weeping Silver Pear Tree, a memorial to Hugh’s Dad Neil, grass under those branches was sheltered from the frost.
And I am outlined, in HUGE style, those layers I’m sure are magnified by the camera!!!
Quotation of the day, author unknown
“ Seasons will keep their arrival on time, each one leaving as the next one comes in with a flurry.
Enjoy them with their own special beauty”
