Inside in the rain today.
Sitting inside listening to rain smattering against the roof, I am certainly happy to work indoors today.
A tour to neolithic sites around Penwith was the plan for today.
This weather would have made such a tour less easy to appreciate. Luckily we were able to postpone until tomorrow and hoping it will stay dry. Noise and splatter from the rain takes me back to childhood days when we often brought out a jigsaw in weather like this. If thunder and lightning set about, we sometimes built the jigsaw UNDER a table, much to parent’s delight!
Rain is OK. Wind is OK. With both you get a fearsome combination of getting wet AND cold. Consequently, every chance of developing a nasty cold if too much time spent getting both wet & cold. Cornish nature however craves the salty rain we get and lives well with it.
A walk in the woods.
Scents from woodland after a rainy period for example are always tremendous. Fresh bark and wood! Recently we took a ramble around woodland by Godolphin House. You may have seen it in the TV drama series Poldark based on Winston Graham’s books. Sadly, many trees have come down as a result of storms. They are of some age so not unrealistic, but sad. Being at the tail end of winter and beginning of spring certainly the resulting in colours being all over the place.
Above in the photo, courtesy Alvajoan of Cornwall of course, is our red kelpi having a good sniff. It takes absolutely ages to get through the woods but he loves it. We enjoy a good ramble too.
Bare branches or brown leaves on leafy trees with green fir trees looking strong in background. They stay wonderfully green all year around. Roots from the old trees make for excellent trip hazards on a good walk.
Drooping wet catkins after the rain, just waiting to be spread by the winds … sounds like a poem.
