Nova Scotia skies often delight and sometimes astonish me, like this one did. The valley landscape with the low, understated mountains in the distance are the perfect foil to this drama. Have a lovely week ahead, friends.
Thanks to Nova Scotia Weather Guy Jim Abraham on Mastodon for telling me the name of the cloud formation is probably cirrocumulus.
Our fields will soon be covered with snow, so this scene can serve to remind me of the lovely light of an early fall day. The morning sun highlighted those tufts of grasses left by the mower so beautifully that they look almost like old-fashioned hay ricks left to dry. Have a lovely day, friends, enjoy the sunshine in your lives whenever you find it.
There is little enough peace in the world, so we appreciate the calm moments that we’re so fortunate to experience here. I’m very happy to share this one with you all. Our beach walks in Nova Scotia always seem to ground us and remind us of the beautiful natural elements that are always there, despite all the chaos that we see in the news and social media.
Have a lovely Sunday, whatever you are doing, friends.
Just for a change of season as we are having sleet here, I thought you might all like a taste of spring to brighten your day. The sunset that evening was hitting these trees at the top of our field in the ‘golden hour’ and the low cloud was almost the same colour as those young leaves, with that amazing blue of the sky appearing here and there. We don’t get to see sunsets from our house as we are surrounded by very tall trees, so I saw this by chance as I walked across the drive and had to run to catch the special moment. It was taken a few years ago, but I passed those same trees on my rainy walk last night and looked back at them as they are now, leaves ready to fall off, after their full year of growth. The field beneath them is now farmed intensively, but the woodland is still there, rich and full of life, including lots of foxes.
