One Fine Morning

I wrote how the nights and early mornings at the cottage were deucedly cold, but it wasn't all bad. Sometimes it was very good. One day, I took my chair outside to read whilst Cuppa remained in the mill. Although it was best to wear a light jacket, I found the weather very pleasant and even wonderfully bug-less. As much as I revelled in the weather and the lack of insects, I felt blessed with the long grass around me and beautiful scenes in front of me. I asked Cuppa to come out and take some pictures. Of course, she had already thought of this and taken one from inside the mill.



Being the accommodating woman that she is, she did come out to take more frontal views.




Then, she left the camera with me, and I took some photos of what I saw when I looked up. The barn was dead ahead.



When I shifted my gaze to the left, I saw meadow and bush lit by the sun.



I was very fortunate to be me that day. It was my version of Splendour in the Grass. It was a fine morning, but, having arisen at 5:30 today, I am much less sanguine about this morning.

Looks like the kind of place that we would like to visit, without the children! It looks so relaxing.

I haven't been over to "visit you for a while ~ but in your last post I cannot believe how big the baby is getting ~ he is a right wee cutie.

I love that first photo--that Cuppa has a good eye for a splendid shot.

The colours in the meadow are soft and rich, golden, blue and deep green. This place has a feeling of summer's end before fall begins. Beautifully peaceful and lovely. thank you for sharing.

Looks like a lovely, relaxing place to read, even if it was a tad nippy.
