Focus on Life Week 5: Get outside!

Ho hum... this past week really hasn't encouraged embracing Nature here in the UK - wet, cold, grey, the odd snow flurry!

All I managed was to snap this from the car on my way to hydrotherapy on Wednesday - the only time I've stepped out the door this week **bbrrrrrr**

  2. We are getting a sprinkle finally after 40+ days with nothing. Send us some more and we will send you some dryness :)

  4. Yup cold, grey and wet down here too - yuk. I really struggled to get outside this week. I can see enough blue in your photo to make a sailor a pair of trousers though :)

  9. It sure looks cold, but look at the warmth of the rays lightly shining through the clouds. Seeing the sun's rays through clouds always does something to me.

    It is supposed to be in the low 80's down here in s.e. FL this weekend. Summer will be here for us all too soon it seems like with these temps. We did have several days of rain and gray skies this week and that was good for growing things.

    Have a nice weekend ~ FlowerLady

  13. That looks rather like a Montana winter sky. Enough to keep one inside....

  17. Oh Claire, sorry the weather has been just awful. We had some horrible cold but today was actually warm compared to what it has been and it snowed so much and I had to go out in it, despite not feeling all that great. Warmer weather is coming! Spring is around the corner. Hang in there. :D Blessings, Bird

  18. Claire, I found your blog today through the Grow Your Blog event. I will be checking in regularly. Thanks for the challenge to get outside. I did and it was cold. I have posted my photo. Sylvia D. www.smdgreetings.blogspot.ca

  20. I would say this photo captures the weather mood perfectly!

  21. I take more photos from my car in the winter time than anywhere else because it's a great place to see the weather without the burden of feeling it! Great cloud pic ... I take tons of cloud pics too!

  22. This winter has been a long cold one! Usually I love grey cloudy days...a day you can curl up with a quilt and a good book.....but I am now looking forward to bright sunny days and WARMTH!

    1. You and me both! The UK's bracing itself for more storms - 100mph+ winds! It's a wild night here, but we're not at risk of flooding, unlike homes on the south coast...
