I stepped out of the door to take the picture below, but first I simply couldn't resist taking this first shot, a panoramic picture of the view from the side of the house.
Stepping onto the front porch this is almost directly opposite us. This 'puff' of mist is what we get all over the hillside opposite after it has rained, pockets of mist rising from the dips in the hill. The first few times I saw this I thought there were little fires burning, as sometimes it is even darker grey and very smoke-like
Little wisps of rising mists evaporating and rising at their own leisure. Some mornings the band is thick and solid and stretches like a white banded horizon, sometimes dispersing quickly before a camera can be sought out, and other days rising magically until it fizzles out high above the hills.
Lower down the view was different, the gates for the paddock drying off on the grass in the sunshine .... HA!!
Who were we kidding .... they got wetter and wetter, so we carried them over to the field and stood them up to see if they will do any better there. Lovely Hubby has the 'furniture' already to go on them. The hinges, catches etc etc.
It will look so neat and secure compared to how it all looks now, another step forward that has not been helped at all by our traditional UK Bank Holiday weather.
