I took the afternoon off today to visit Belsay Hall a local stately home and garden. It was a lovely visit, hot and sunny (well to me anyway). Coming home I saw some dramatic clouds and now we're having a heavy thundershower :)

Hey, I really like that shot kniphofia. The clouds seem to be swirling down to meet the fields arcing upwards.

Looks like some of the thunderheads we have over here--good photo! By the way, kniphofia, what do you consider to be "hot and sunny"? LOL

Well Marsue, I lived in Maine for 10 years so hot and sunny would be in the 90s there, but here, 75F is considered hot. I prefer around 60F :) I love being back home, even though some of my friends, colleagues and family think 50F is cold!
Here's another shot from Wednesday, looking the other way from the photo in my first post.
Thanks for the kind comments everyone :)

That last one really looks threatening, Knip! Hot and sunny where I live would be in the 90's, also, and humid as well! 50's, if not cold, would at least be chilly! LOL
All depends on what you are accustomed to!

Yes we had very heavy rain. In fact this week has been very wet indeed. Yesterday morning when I got up one corner of my garden (near the drainpipe from the roof) was under water!

I Google Earth-ed Ashington. You are very far north. What're your average temps?

Yes I'm only a few miles from the Scotland border. We get a lot of windy weather off the North Sea. I'd say average summer temps are about 65-75F. Winter is about 40F. There is a lot more cloudy weather, not so many blue skies as in Maine, but I love it. Today's been in the mid 60'sF.

Sounds like heaven. Our family on my mother's side is from Ireland. I think there is some Welsh there somewhere, too. I dream about visiting or moving there someday.

Oh, well, it never hurts to dream. I've always wanted to visit Ireland and Scotland and England--all of Great Britain!
