Changing Weather

Even the setting sun couldn’t break through the clouds today.

The day started as another early-onset hot weather day, the valley covered in heat haze and no sign of Mount Warning. By mid-afternoon, a southerly wind blew the heat away, and for the first time in days the temperature was positively brisk! But still no sign of the mountain.

It looked like rain in the valley, heading north towards us, yet the rain never arrived. Thankfully though, the morning temperate of the low thirties plummeted to an afternoon temperature in the low twenties – bliss!

Day and Night

There was nothing to wax lyrical over when I looked out at the valley yesterday morning. Yes, this photo was taken yesterday, I missed adding my daily post.

My sister called last night, just as I was about to go to my computer and add my Thursday mountain photos. So we talked. And talked, and talked, and talked some more. My sister lives about six hour’s drive south from here, so we don’t see each other as often as we would like, hence the long conversation. I went to bed at 1am, but time spent with my sister is always a priority. I adore her. ❤

Anyway, as the view across the valley looked pretty average (by valley standards!) I took a photo showing the broad view of the area in my garden where I can see the valley and Mount Warning the best. The palm trees are in our garden, the rest of the greenery is next door. The house next door is up to its fifth ownership since the house was built twenty-six years ago, and just like all the previous  owners before the latest – and the ones before, and the ones before – these people are planting large trees that block the view, when low-growing, or well maintained trees, can be just as beautiful. I have often wondered why anyone would do such a thing, but there you have it.

Standing in the same position around nightfall, I took another photo of the same scene. Isn’t the sky pretty? 🙂

Today we have rain, so I’ll have to keep looking out for a glimpse of the mountain. Currently it’s hidden behind clouds and mist. I have some lovely garden photos I took yesterday though, so later today I will add today’s mountain view, however bleak it may look, plus photos from my sunny front garden, taken before the rain arrived.
