Well I ask the question because Monday and Tuesday the wind howled and the rain came. I probably shouldn't complain about the rain as March was the driest for about 50 years I think and rain is needed to make things grow.... but so is SUN! But Sunday was a glorious day as these photos show. Above is Sandside Bay, and the Hoy High lighthouse. The hills in the background are in Orphir on the Orkney Mainland.
Please note - the next two photos were taken at DAWN on Sunday.... as folk who know me realise only to well - I do not frequent "dawn"..... however beautiful it is..... and no I didn't stay up to see how this one developed! I'd wandered down to the kitchen just before 6am for a cup of tea having lain awake unable to go back to sleep. The first cup of tea in the morning is the best - whatever time. However I WAS drawn to the light from the window and stepped outside in my pyjams and wellies to take these two photos.
I was astonished to find some flowers in the walled garden already. It cheered my heart to see them!
