As I walked out one midsummer …

By gum, it’s freezing today. The temperature may decline to rise above zero all day. I’m in urgent need of some of summer’s warmth. Poppies might do it.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

      1. Raining now – or could be sleet actually as it has just got noisier! Hands are cold so probably a good idea to leave the computer and go downstairs where it is warmer.

  1. Wonderful, wonderful poppies making a fabulous photo just what’s needed to lift the mood. It’s all about contrasts though isn’t it? If we had blue skies and warm balmy weather 365 days a year no doubt we’d eventually tire of it. Sicily man’s 20 to zero, mmm, I’d have been more impressed if it had been -20 degrees to zero from the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station. Sicily, in Europe and not by train for a jolly – meh. Obviously, he doesn’t have grandchildren.

      1. Oh dear, yes sorry, my daughter has pointed out that I always seem to be in a bad mood at the moment. An unexpected health issue – eyes! – a thorough and cautious optician followed by a marvellously speedy NHS hospital visit checking it out and giving me the all clear. Just getting old.

      2. Oh dear it certainly isn’t. Even the preliminary tests they do at the Eye Clinics are pretty ghastly. Wishing him all the best and if it’s laser treatment of the retina, my friend had it and it saved her sight.


  2. It isn’t. It’s macular degeneration, treatment for which involves monthly injections directly into the eye. Urgh. But he says it’s not as bad as it sounds. Better luck with yours!
