Today, the 21st December is the Winter Solstice here in the Northern Hemisphere. Finally day length will start going the right way. We’ve had a grey few weeks and have not seen much sunshine. But the sun was there briefly this morning just as it rose about 9am only to be swallowed by a bank of cloud.
Wishing you all a lovely Winter Solstice
Today is the winter solstice. It is dark and grey, but thankfully from tomorrow the days will start getting lighter. It is too dark for a photo this morning but here is one from earlier this month.
We haven’t seen much blue sky these last few months. The constant grey can be depressing, as can the constant damp. So when we do finally see some blue sky or witness a sunrise we get this unexpected feeling of serenity.
Last year, the combined rainfall for October and November was just over 130mm. This year for the same period it has been 275mm. Admittedly, last year was a drier autumn than average and this year’s figures are closer to mean figures.

The shortest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere. Thankfully from tomorrow day’s will get longer. The photo is actually from yesterday morning, this mornings sunrise was not so dramatic.
Wishing you all a happy winter solstice.
