Winter Wednesday: Red Sky at Morning.

“Like a red morn that ever yet betokened,
Wreck to the seaman, tempest to the field,
Sorrow to the shepherds, woe unto the birds,
Gusts and foul flaws to herdmen and to herds.”
~ William Shakespeare (Venus & Adonis)

A red sunrise Tuesday morning proved to be the calm before the storm.
Last night there was thunder, lightning, rain and gale-force winds.
Windows rattled, loose iron clanged, and bins were upturned, sending wayward recyclables tumbling down the street.
Behind it has followed a cold, wet and windy Wednesday, in true mid-winter form.
(Don't know where spring has scampered off to).

Winter Wednesday is hosted by Hazel Dene.


  1. Enjoy the rain and cold Sarah, Spring is back next week!

    Then follows the heat...

  2. We had the most glorious day yesterday, followed very quickly by a wintry blast. But don't worry, Spring will return.

  3. I'm glad you got sunshine though - it's August and outside it looks as gloomy as November! That's crazy - I had to bring a jumper with me to work today it's that cold lol.


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I really appreciate any suggestions, feedback and comments you may like to share, so please don't be afraid to leave them. It'd be wonderful to see you return again!
