Ullswater blue

My little red adventurer and I checked in with the Lakeland weather forecast earlier today. Present blue sky’s a bit of a short-term blip in a (more usual for January) sea of grey, they say. So we set out to capture a few snapshots – reminders of light and warmth to come, and perhaps of glad company with whom to sing: ‘it’s gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day …’ ☀️🌿

Blue sky days

The forecasters tell us that rain is headed our way tomorrow. But we’ve had a few wonderful blue-sky days and our neighbourhood has shone in all its (granted, slippery!) glory. I wonder what it is about blue sky that cheers us all up so? Or what in grey sky has the opposite effect? Still: if it turns out to be a grey day tomorrow I shall try to remember to be grateful for the ensuing melting of the ice. To everything its season!
