Seasonal perfection


It is such a wonderful time of the year.  The morning mists hanging over our village briefly turn us into a magical kingdom. 


I wish I could make myself get up this early every morning just to watch the transformation. 


Walking the dog through the scent of newly-damp baked earth, pine resin and wood smoke is bliss.  If we could capture this fragrance in a  bottle it would spread happiness wherever sprinkled. 

(tomatoes have come down in price too - hurrah!)

  4. Gorgeous!

    The local Zirve club had a walk on Sunday but they started at 05:30 and we decided it was too early for us. Though they did get some wonderful views. Maybe it's worth getting up at daybreak....

  5. Stunning photos, Annie. I agree there are some things worth getting up for (just occasionally) and watching the sun rise and the mist hanging on for a little while is definitely one of them. Axxx
