I ran away

Yesterday, the sky was so low and heavy it was almost sitting on my shoulders, so I ran away to see if I could find sunshine.

I didn’t quite run, I drove a short distance through very heavy rain with alternating spells of sunshine. I had a short walk but added plenty of steps to the exercise for the day.

Tiny quiet courtyard

If only….. my garden looked as neat as this!

The view over the gardens at Belfast Castle between the showers.

    gigi – As I type, the sky is partially blue but we have very strong wind howling about outside.

    I think spring has finally arrived here… certainly the trees do, they’ve gone into over-blossom all of a sudden, they are so heavily laden they look like they will fall down! And I went out without a coat today (admittedly wearing my warmest jumper, but still, its a change from my warmest jumper with hat scarf coat and gloves!) And, i’ve turned the heating DOWN to 20!!

    Barbara – I saw a rhododendron bush in full blossom in the grounds of Belfast castle, but around me at home, things still look bleak and asleep. In the distance there were still a few white stripes on the hills (snow).

    Ramana – We will have to wait ’till the rain stops. We have had flood warnings all morning.
