twelve

When life has been grey for a while, you can forget that eventually the sun will come out. So it was this morning, a blessed relief from all the rain and hail we have been having. I took an impromptu walk to my son’s school, which is currently having so much building work done that you have to go in by a very roundabout way. It turns out the sunshine was not the only surprise.

First I found this allotment. You have to love a school that has an allotment.

And here’s a better view of that splendid scarecrow.

Opposite the allotment is an area that is labelled ‘The Potager’. Who knew a school could have a potager?

This daisy seems to be coping well with the harsh weather.

Although I am learning to like grey, for a couple of brief hours this morning I was very, very grateful for the contrasts of light and shadow …

… and even a glimpse of blue sky.

  1. I think it’s wonderful Joanna that the school do this. Talking of grey periods which dominate this time of year I read somewhere recently in Scotland that when the leaves fell from the trees people decorated the trees with brightly coloured fabric to keep the tree spirits happy and to entice them back in the spring to bring bright new growth to the trees again. Maybe during the grey times we all need to find ways to add colour and anticipation for the lighter brighter days. Interesting post and photographs. Thank you.
