cloudy skies

Being forced into yet another lockdown and being confined to our local area I had the idea of going out each day with a different theme in mind.  Continuing looking at clouds in February in other locations. This one is very close to home.

A blue sky day,  February 5th 2021 – from home

A winter’s day when you remember how delightful a blue sky and soft white scudding clouds can be.  Although it looks like a summer’s day this picture can be very deceiving. The temperature barely reached 5°C

    From the bathroom or the bedroom, Jude? Not a bad view to contemplate. Love those puffy clouds 🙂 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Bedroom / office or upstairs lounge. Take your pick 😉

      1. restlessjo says:

        Fabulous day here, walking with a couple of friends. Back on my roof now 🤗💕

        1. Heyjude says:

          Walking with friends! That’s good. We can still only meet one other person to ‘exercise’ with.

        2. restlessjo says:

          Walking as 2 separate couples- illegal in the strict sense of things but who’s going to police this, and we were up in the hills , where we passed maybe 4 people in 2 hours of walking. Terrible, hey? And you never walked with anyone, anyway? 🙂 )

        3. Heyjude says:

          No, I have never walked with a group, except on a tour. Probably never will now. I’m a very solitary person really.

        4. restlessjo says:

          It’s not a bad thing to be at the minute 🙂 🙂 I’m solitary when I feel like it. The rest of the time people have to put up with me. 🙂 The couple we walked with today are from Bradford- he via the Caribbean- with one daughter in her early 20s in Chichester, trying to make her way. They have similar anxieties to ours, having burnt their boats and no UK home to fall back on.

        5. Heyjude says:

          Well you can come back to the UK in the future, if ever you want to. Nothing has to be forever. But at the moment it doesn’t matter where you live, you still can’t see family.

    Amazing that it’s as cold as you say. That looks so summery.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I know. Deceptive. Bitter easterly wind.

  3. bushboy says:

    I was enjoying myself until you told me the temperature. 🙂 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Ah, but you’d be inside, snug as a bug, to have this view 😊

  4. Ann Mackay says:

    It may be cold, but it’s great to see the light coming back as the angle of the sun changes. Areas of my garden that have been in shade for ages are starting to see sunshine again! 🙂

    1. Heyjude says:

      Yes, same here. I noticed this year that very little of the garden gets any sun at all during the winter months. Now the sun has moved round so only the woodland border is still in shade.

  5. Sue says:

    Sunshine and shadows!

  6. beetleypete says:

    At least you had the blue sky, despite the cold. Foggy and grey here! 😦
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      We have a strange sort of mist surrounding us today, over the coast I assume, but sunny in the garden.

    2. Heyjude says:

      Dust from Africa apparently!

  7. Tina Schell says:

    Beautiful clouds Jude – nearly makes up for the cold but not quite!

    1. Heyjude says:

      I much prefer this to the milder but wetter weather with solid grey cloud!

  8. Graham says:

    Nice view. I’m with you on preferring it cold and sunny to mild and grey. At least you can bundle up and get outside with the former.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Exactly! No-one wants to go out in the gloom and damp.

  9. Brrrr! If you hadn’t told me how cold it was I would have thought it was a warm summer’s day. What a beautiful outlook you have, Jude.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s not a bad view 😍

  10. Leya says:

    A glorious, soft and fluffy, deceptive view, Jude! Is that palm trees??? We have the same temperature here, and the green grass. One day we touched 15 degrees, but now we are back at 0-6 and minus in the nights. But the light is wonderful! I didn’t realise you can only meet one other person – but to me that is no problem either.
    May the sun keep shining on you and your garden.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Cornish palms, otherwise known as cabbage palms are actually Cordyline australis. They are pretty tough plants.

      1. Leya says:

        Ah, thank you, Jude. I will look them up!
