A misty morning


As we drove out yesterday morning it seemed as if Winter had arrived.  It was misty and damp and the trees were noticeably leafless on the land exposed to the wind and the rain on the heights overlooking Loxley and Bradfield Dale. The top road from the village of Worral to High Bradfield runs through farmland and moors with one or two farmsteads and an isolated convent building, chapel and cottage guest house, the home of an enclosed community of Carmelite nuns.  










                                   Down in the sheltered valley the trees still retain their leaves.







                                                      "Come in Number 4" !

It was just as misty and murky by Damflask Reservoir and no sailing boats on the water.

Last week I spent most of the time moving furniture around which involved emptying cabinets and then rearranging china and glassware.  The dresser was given two coats of Annie Sloan paint in Paris Grey, but now needs waxing to preserve the finish.  When I'm able to put the plates back on the shelves I'll post a photo.

  1. I see Winter and Fall in your photos... Reminds me of the short blog post I published on Saturday showing our home on Nov. 3 and on Nov. 15... AMAZING the differences...

    That mist (what I call fog) is spooky --and makes it look cold outside.... Love fog photos...

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  8. Lovely photos Linda. It's been that grey today you could almost think the sky was full of the white stuff! Let's hope not although it is forecast I believe. Keep warm.

  11. Cold and frosty here today, though the sun is shining so it's a lovely crisp day. I don't think the leaves are going to last long on the trees now, winter is definitely on the way.

  12. There is something so pretty in the starkness of a bare tree.
    Again your surroundings are just beautiful.

  13. I like the photos with the blue Madonna, she gives a beautiful contrast to the darker tones. I have a Madonna in our garden. Your photos are lovely.
