One of the things I love about our house (which is actually a large flat) is the bay window:
At this time of year our neighbours’ beautiful cherry tree is a lovely sight. I think I might have missed taking a photo of it at peak blossom, but you get the idea. The bay window is a great place for me and Michael to have a cuppa together, when we get the chance. Now that the days are lengthening very noticeably (the sun rises at 5 am and sets at 9 pm) we can enjoy the evening light. Tilly also enjoys sunning herself on the chairs.
However, all is not quite as it seems. It has been a very cold spring. Earlier on the day I took this photo (Saturday, 5 May), it SNOWED! This is the second time I’ve experienced snow in May in Aberdeen, in the 20 years I’ve lived here.
Today is a public holiday in Scotland – the May Bank Holiday. I wish you all a happy day wherever you are, and a happy week to come!
