Already Friday and nearly another month, the weeks are flying by.
There have been gorgeous sunsets of late, I spotted this urban skyline on my way home from work.
There are early spring flowers in the garden, including these vibrant golden crocuses.
Healthy dinners, some mixed grains and lentils, with mushrooms and grilled halloumi, delicious and comforting on a cold evening.
A bit of hooking in the evening; a puff stitch hexagon in lovely pink lambs’ wool ( I found the pattern here, a lovely blog with lots of fab crochet)
The view across to the hills has been great of late, with snow on the hilltops
Just some peeks at the week that’s been 😄
There was much snow and ice here in Glasgow and Scotland last week
It has been pretty cold, a sudden plunge into deep winter; after a mild autumn, it has come as a bit of a shock to have to don so many more layers when venturing out!
I took these photos when I arrived home from work one evening, after a fresh fall of snow
A pretty icing sugar dusting on the trees
The next morning was glorious, and everywhere glistened.
When the the sun shines and the snow sparkles, it is gorgeous. Winter has its brightest coat on days like this one above.
A day of foul, wintry weather in these parts; rain, sleet, hail, strong wind and cold temperatures.
A day for staying in with my new diary, new notebook and new iPad cover 😄
A day for looking for music for my pupils
A day for snuggling up on the sofa with a cuddly cat
A day to plan and prepare, and to look forward to what’s ahead!
Most of the photos I’ve taken this November have been of the wonderful clouds and sunny/sunset skies
even though the days are getting shorter and colder
the views looking up have been spectacular!
A gorgeous, sunny crisp cold Sunday here today in Glasgow Next door’s cherry tree is almost bare of its leaves; the sun streams through the branches.
in the front garden, the hydrangea flowers are silhouetted by the blue, blue sky
Tara has been enjoying the sunshine and fresh air all morning
but it’s a bit cold for me, I’m heading indoors for coffee in my new mug (from IKEA ) chocolate and crochet!
Happy Sunday to you, whatever it may bring.
I visited Inverness last week again; my job takes me there twice a year and it always gives great photo opportunities! It was cold and crispy, my favourite kind of autumn weather. The river glistened in the afternoon sun on Saturday
with gorgeous golden leaves above
While I took these photos, the bells of the cathedral were ringing. As you can imagine, it was a wonderful sound to accompany these images.
Impressive castle framed by the trees
Here it is later on in the evening with twinkling fairy lights in the trees on the riverbank
I managed some unintended Bokeh in this next photo – trying to photograph the moon is tricky, and I wouldn’t normally post out of focus pics but it looks pretty!
Happy times in a lovely place 😄
October has been a beautiful month; mild weather, harvesting fruit and vegetables, turning leaves of golden and russet hues, and wonderful skies filled with pink and orange clouds. I made several flavours of gin based liqueur for Christmas, in the photo, you can see raspberry and blueberry. I decided to crochet myself something to wear, there’s a glimpse of it above and I will reveal more soon. It’s been busy at work too, but happily with enough time to enjoy all of the above 😄
