Autumn warmth

We woke up this morning to a perpetual drizzle of rain and increasing swirlings of mist. It looked like it would be one of those Sundays spent indoors enveloped by a suffocating fog. By lunchtime the sun had broken through, the rain had stopped ... "Mr Blue Sky" graced us with his presence. Family and dog decanted from the house and bounded up the Malvern Hills delighting in the warmth of the sunlight upon our faces. Three weeks after the Autumn Equinox and it could have been Summer but for the falling leaves and apples. However, the nights are drawing in and it will soon be the Winter Solstice followed by the long and dark journey of the Water Tide through to the Vernal Equinox. Enjoy the sunlight while it lasts! Soon be time to batten down the hatches!
