..as I sat out one Spring morning….


Coffee in the peace of an early morning gives me that time to reflect and prepare myself for the day. The season has changed which means that this morning I enjoyed  that moment in the warmth of the early morning sun. It matters not a jot that tomorrow it may rain as this morning was perfect.

    Breakfast in the cool morning before everything heats up, literally or metaphorically, is one of the nicest pleasures in life.

  2. Pear in the morning.

    Loved your reflection this morning. We are up in Hexham with Jacquie Ian and Mo. Sun is shining but not exactly balmy – off to Raby Castle soon. Will let you know when we are arriving at La Rochelle in mid- July. Hope you are recovering from all your manual labour and that the garden is taking shape. Will ring when we get home. Jackiex

    That’s a nice pear! For some reason the pool and fruit made me think of Pink Floyd 😉

    • That’s a nice thought…breakfast designed by Hipgnosis….you’re thinking of the album “A Nice Pair” 🙂

        Ha ha – something crossed with Hockney ripples, cows and a man on fire. A Nice Pear indeed and a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush! I worked with Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell briefly, on a Japanese pop video, though IMHO it’s their album covers that shine like a crazy diamond 😉

      • No question…I did a lot of record covers with A&M Records in the 70’s and early 80’s but never worked with Storm at Hipgnosis:)

  5. Hear, hear! It was the same in London this morning. Same rainy forecast for tomorrow too.

  6. This photo says it all for me, it’s peaceful, calm, sunny and delicious. It’s warm and sunny here in Ireland today, fingers crossed it lasts 🙂

    Oh the joy of being retired and able to take your holiday when the sun shines instead of joining the working mobs in the rain 🙂 Schadenfreude pur!

  8. Touche my good man… And it’s always nice to start the day with a good pair, er, pear 😜
