The mountains were still hidden in gloom, but in the east a slit of clear sky produced a shaft of intense sunlight.
A bit of mist hung about in the wetland surrounding the house, giving an etherial quality to the light.
Then, while the sun continued to shine, it started to rain.
The light became even more magical.
Then a few bits of mountains appeared.
They are now in their winter mode.
Later in the afternoon it got quite warm. Out came the butterflies. Snow to butterflies within 24 hours. How bizarre is that! (This is a mourning cloak.)
That evening the sun made wonderful strong lights and shadows again.
What a gorgeous day. What a pity I had to work!
