Letters from a Hill Farm
The sun? What's that?Pretty picture nan!Katie at GardenPunks
It feels like we have sun almost every day. Mrs Bale and I simply cannot complain. :<)
We have had that lovely sun all day too. It was a beautiful day as we woke to fog that turned to hoarfrost which we don't have often. It quickly burned off when the sun got up.
Lisa, I am always so pleased to read your comments. Thank you for coming by so often. Is it green- bough or bow, as in bow and arrow?
That's a nice photo, Nan. Very skilful. We had a lovely sunny day here in Devon too. We had to drive across the county to the hospital in Plymouth and the trip, with views of Dartmoor, was beautiful.
I was just thinking about shadows today! We had a glorious weekend, full of sunshine and warm temps. Of course, we're due to get more snow by midweek. Ah, Mother Nature. She's such a tease!
Thanks, Cath, but there was really no skill. :<) I took a bunch of photos and most of them were blurry and bad, and this one was the best of the lot. Isn't Dartmoor where there is or was a prison? I've been thinking about your brother.Les, the secret is not to pay attention to the coming weather. This is where Tom and I are so different. He is the super weatherman, while I look out the window or walk outside and say, oh, it is sunny or snowy. :<)
Thanks for your thought about my brother, Nan. I sent you a quick e.mail earlier on.Yes, there is a very large prison on Dartmoor, it's Napoleonic. It used to be high security but isn't any more. In The Hound of the Baskervilles that was where the prisoner had escaped from.
Beautiful winter sun! It's always so welcome. :)
A certain slant of light. :) That which you only get in the winter months. This is lovely.
What a beautiful blog. Thanks for visiting mine...I'll bookmark yours and drop in from time to time. It's nice and warm in Hoboken today -- all the way up to 40 degrees, and my heat is out. Never mind, spring will be along soon.
I like the picture too, Nan. I can handle winter so much better when there's sunshine. It's those gray days that get to me.
There is nothing but grey skies here in Holland but as I say to another Dutch blogger ~ without the rain there would be no flowers. Your pictures always evoke something in me. I want to be able to stop in just to say hello and perhaps join you for a cup of tea and a chat. Right now the chat would be about your garden. Is it awakening from its winter sleep? Do you have many exciting new plans for it?Hugs ~Heidi
I want to thank each of you for your thoughtful comments. They really mean so much to me. One thing, Heidi, made me laugh. No, not awakening at all. By the end of April, probably. :<)
Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
