Spring is in the air

Coming home from work last night I had a bit of a shock. On the train journey where the train comes out from underground to the surface between Highbury & Islington and Dreyton Park I was met with a glorious orange glow. At first I thought it was a big plastic sign. Then I realised this was the sky and thought London was burning. Then I finally realised that I was looking at the sunset. For the first time in months I was travelling home in daylight. It was a fantastic feeling to see actual evidence of spring and realising that it’s not going to be long before the clocks go forward. The daffodils have come out in the pot just outside the flat too, which is nice (although I can’t help thinking it’s still a little bit early for them isn’t it?). I’ll take photos soon. Meanwhile here’s a photo from my friend Martin who managed
to take a lovely shot of last night’s sunset.

  1. It really does make a difference when we get to go home in daylight again. I always consider that to be a sure sign of spring, even if it’s actually freezing cold!
    It is early for daffodils but I started seeing ones in flower before the end of January. The ones on my my plot may well flower this week. When they do I shall take a photo and do an entry as they’ll be my first flowers!
    I like the photo! Clear days can end in spectacular sunsets at this time of year.

  2. I hope that all is well and you’re okay!
    Have a good Easter! xx
