The shortening days

Why do we make such an issue of the nights ‘coming-in’? They have been doing this every year since time immemorial, and certainly as long as I remember! Let’s revel in the changing proportion of light and dark, and the wonderful sky-scapes which make-up for the rain!

A summer evening

Out for a walk with our grandson, Euan, aged 9(and a bit!) and recalled the fun we had as children pretending to be lost in a wood, paddling in a stream, watching out for rabbits, throwing stones, acting the idiot on the swings, falling in the mud, walking on walls, washing the wellies, and a cold drink before going off home to get ready for school again……of such memories are a wonderful childhood made………

What do you recall from your youth?
