The wind was howling, the trees were whistling and clattering against one another, there was no sign of a moon or any stars.
The wind chimes were going mad....which is a sound I adore.
The clouds would build up and obscure the mountain peaks and then blow away just as quickly, leaving new cloud formations in their wake.
I loved each and every second of it.
There's nothing I adore more than coming home from the office and spending time outdoors. In warmer months I grab a glass of wine and go for a walkabout through my gardens to see what's growing.
When I came home from work yesterday evening I was inspired to do the very same.
The wind was blowing like crazy....but it was a strangely warm wind, not the cold, bitter wind it was when I left early that morning.
The sunset was lovely, a red sky against the glow of my garden cottage.
I took a peek inside to check on the plants I'm overwintering in there. It's hard to tell just yet but it's possible some of them may survive. Fingers crossed.
There's nothing more comforting than seeing the warm glow of the lights inside a cozy house on a stormy night.
My little house looked so warm and inviting I was compelled to snap some photos to share with you.
The side window to the dining room....the fiddle leaf fig is quite happy there in it's new spot. And I can watch the birds at the suet in the mornings from my place at the breakfast table.
It was so lovely being outdoors again, enjoying the beauty all around me. I spent quite a bit of time on my little garden swing, just listening to the wind in the trees and the chimes down in the garden.
I was ever so happy to be out in nature once again....I've missed it terribly.
When I finally made my way indoors to start supper guess who had decided to make themselves at home in my chair.
It was a very good night.
