How lovely to cycle to work under blue skies this morning. To see purple and yellow crocus and white snowdrops in the park; sunlight hitting the top of the Victoria Tower and turning it golden; the gleaming steel and glass of the Eye; and the pale green familiar dome of the Imperial War Museum. Structures which have become like old friends; constant constellations in an urban firmament, renewed by spring.
how the heck did you get spring already?!
We haven’t really had winter yet. So spring is rushing in to fill the void, but today it was forecast that February will be very cold.
OK, then, you had me going!
It was rather spring-like here today too for a change….temps in the 60s – breezy – but with snow possibilities looming on the horizon, I’ll just take it ONE DAY AT A TIME. Sounds like you enjoyed your bike ride today!

It was colder today, I’ve put my heating on again, but lovely and bright. I felt my shoulders relaxing on the cycle ride home.
Our plants are confused with the weather. One day Spring, the next Winter and then Spring again.
‘constant constellations in an urban firmament’ wow I wish I could write like that, you’re awesome!
Ooh, My goodness. Thank you so much Gilly. I am glad you like it.
The weather is all befuddled here too! Not complaining, ice and snow not wanted. Haven’t been able to turn off our heat though!
Today started with blue skies. Now it is grey and cold and I am feeling very unmotivated!
I love your writing. This small piece is jewel-like. I lived in London for a long time – so nice to visit it through your eyes and bicycle wheels. Look forward to seeing more.
Thanks. Where were you?
How perfectly lovely – it seems you were reading my blog while I was busily adding IsobelandCat under a new category ‘I like these…’ at the bottom of my blogpage!! Now that, I believe, is what they call serendipity or something. Love your blog, and thank you for your comment – I hope you will enjoy mine!
Thanks! I had a lovely visit. Good idea to add the address. I am always losing sight of blogs I’ve liked.
I now see you have added mine to yours! How very kind and hope it will deserve to be there! You mentioned coming to Ireland, which is intriguing! Work? Family? Pleasure? All three?? I wonder where you are going. Be sure to pack your wetsuit – you will need it.
