Pale light

There’s a milky look in Lakeland today: sunny and bright but also a pale, beguiling, restful quality of light. The apple and pear trees are blossoming. There’s rain in the weather forecast for the next week or so – and when I’m tempted to be a bit grizzly about that I look at blossoms, flowers and green-ness and reckon a bit of rain’ll actually be alright!
