Skywatch Friday - in the mist.

  
 The last few days have been very atmospheric, with a heavy mist each morning, slowly lifting through the day and then creeping in again before nightfall. It feels more like November than spring. The weather report was for a week of warm weather but it hasn't happened in this part of the country.  I'm not complaining because at least it hasn't rained and yesterday evening I finally managed to light the bonfire.
I started off with a great heap of debris and it burnt away beautifully - so satisfying!
 By this morning only a small heap remained.
9 am and a murky start to the day for Skywatch Friday.
I rather like it!
But colour is creeping into the garden, the pear tree is springing into action, although the 'St Patrick's Day' daffodils planted underneath will never manage to flower for the saint day on the 17th.
Just look at the moss and lichen, you can tell that we have had months of wet weather.
 
 I walked past this wall of aubretia while visiting a friend this morning, a glorious burst of colour, just the thing to lift the spirits!

    1. Yes, misty mornings and a good bonfire are two of the pleasures in life! I would love to have such a good display of aubretia in my garden but I have no spot that gets a good baking of southerly sun for all the day.

  2. The images are so beautiful, too bad that the weather gods have not been more generous in your part of the country! It is amazing how many flowers, trees and bushes are already in bloom, though. Your vegetable garden with the row of daffodils looks very inviting already.

    Happy Sky Watch,
    Merisi

    1. Although the weather isn't brilliant it is definitely spring and a little more colour is creeping into the garden day by day.

  3. So you are far enough out of Bath not to be prosecuted by your neighbours for lighting a bonfire.

    1. I'm not a townie, Tom, I can't imagine not being able to light a bonfire - I think that I'd have to move house if restrictions were imposed!

  6. The mist gave you some nice photos. Flowers have not started here as yet so it's nice to see yours.

    1. Hello Mary. My garden looks a great deal tidier and far more organized in the photos than it does in real life. In reality it's a bit of a losing battle with weeds and chaos - but it still gives me a great deal of pleasure.
