Windy Day



The frost has gone but we are going to be hit by gale force winds, rain and hail this afternoon.  Today is the Villefranche stage of the Tour de Perigord, I feel so sorry for the cyclists battling against these weather conditions this afternoon.  Needless to say our bicycles are currently tucked up in the garage, they are fair weather bikes!

The birds are battling to fly in the wind.  Our ring necked doves think Grandma’s seat is a great place to perch.


The wind and rain arrived mid afternoon.  Paul was not happy because it knocked out the satellite reception and he missed the last two laps of the Russian Grand Prix.

The log fire is burning, the wine is plentiful and I shall roast a chicken for supper.  Summer is not here yet.

  1. I like the photograph of the rain. It is very windy here but dry and sunny with it although not exactly warm.

    1. Rain is easier to capture with the camera than wind.

  2. Very windy here, too, though not much sun, nor is it warm. Looking at the rain, I think your bicycles are in the best place !

  3. Best to be tucked up by the fire (as I am - only 9C here). My glass of choice is Sandeman's sweet sherry. Yum!

    1. Just occasionally I love a glass of Harvey's Bristol Cream sherry. And a piece of fruit cake.

  4. We had a quick rain and temperatures near 90º, much too early for all this heat.

    1. Crazy weather at the moment. At least we didn't get any grele.

  6. I hope the ring necked doves don't shit on Grandma's seat as grandma will be sitting there again before too long with her copy of "Good Housekeeping".
