Sea and Sky

Surreal image of sea and sky. I choose things that will make a good picture when they are duplicated and put together in a pattern. The waves were breaking in the distance and the sand was thinly covered with a film of water. The groynes are wearing out but still stop the sand drifting. I like the triangles on poles at either end of them (only one in the original photo) I think this makes a plesant composition…

My day ran out

Night came out and I didn’t notice, busy doing things, running out of time. Moon and stars are up and shifting sideways, sliding like quick silver across the sky. Two minutes to midnight, almost bedtime. Maybe I’ll sleep tonight. Its January but its too warm. Finding it hard to sleep without throwing the bedding off me. When I’m feeling like this I don’t want the heating on.

Still it’s good to rest. Wake up before dawn. Sleep might come. Day is done.

Soon all the leaves will be gone. A big storm is due in overnight so I guess they will be torn from the trees. My hanging baskets still have a few flowers opening in them despite the minus temperatures we have had. The sky has been lovely in the last few mornings, with gentle hints of colour, rosy glows and golden hues.

Then it will be time to cur back and prune some of the trees. Tidying up a little bit, but not enough to harm where the birds sleep. Now dawn is getting later, after 7am. It means I get to see more of them. X

Misty sea and sky, on the coast, this summer. I think we were staying in Wales, in Llandudno, before the fires across the world, before the yellow clouds of smoke obscured other peoples views. Before rainforest burnt in South America, or woods burning in Australia. People, animals, birds, need clean air to breathe, like the air at the coast. They need gentle breezes, or moderate winds, not storms that are getting faster, tornados that rip houses apart, hurricanes that drown landscapes, Tsunami and mega Cyclones. But we keep burning gas and electricity, chopping down forests.

The world’s scientists say we only have twelve years before we reach a tipping point where we won’t be able to stop global warming. Yesterday it was announced that Carbon Dioxide levels have risen again to something like 147% of what they were in pre industrial times. We knew about this in the 1970’s but no one did anything to resolve it….

Well this has got cheerful….
