1 Sunrise was particularly beautiful this morning. I love the straight line of the clouds and the sunbeams coming in from the left. The name in the title is what dawn used to be known as by farmers in the Eighteenth Century (as I have just learned from a brilliant book I’m reading called ‘The Horologican’ by Mark Forsyth about lost words of the English language)
2 These beautiful hyacinths were given to us for Christmas and are almost in full bloom and smell just lovely. The scent wafts all the way up the stairs. Aren’t they just the loveliest colour?
3 On a short walk down the lane this afternoon, energy levels being still rather low, I noticed this amazing leafless ivy in the shape of a tree all the way from the bottom to the top of the wall.
