Bringing in the light

















We arrived at the woods in the pouring rain.
We paused and it passed, followed by glorious sunshine.
A low glow, bathing everything in a beautiful golden light.
We had the place to ourselves.................................................or did we?

Line dried washing, the first this year*
It has a very special smell and make this mama very happy.

An earth candle for Candlemas and Imbolc,
celebrated with friends on a beautiful sunny day.
Mid winter has passed, spring is on its way.


********************

*It has been sunny, but has not coincided with washing to be dried.

Joining Suzy for a sharing of the simple things that have fed our souls this week.

  1. Super photos! It has been so good to see blue skies for the past two days. It is frosty here this morning, with some mist, but hopefully that will burn of and we will have some more sunshine.
    Have a good weekend, xx

  3. I haven't bothered hanging any washing out, even when it's a dry day it's just too cold. I agree though, there's nothing nicer than the smell of washing which has been dried outdoors. Spring is on the way, that's music to my ears.

  7. We are back to rain (very heavy at times) over here. It's alright though, I seem to be able to handle the gray skies when there are spring blooms everywhere. Wishing you a lovely sunny weekend.

  13. I can't wait to hang my laundry outside again. For now it dries on the rack indoors, but it is not the same. Soon, though, soon. Enjoy your weekend.

  18. Until I looked more closely I thought the last picture was a fried egg - it had me quite confused for a moment there. Yes spring is definitely on its way, although we are in for a few frosty mornings next week.
