The December weather this year has been truly strange and unseasonal! Here on our island cherry trees have started blooming and the bulbs are sending up green leaves. Roses are still flowering, vying for attention amidst the fairy light adorned evergreen trees. Unfortunately the sun is mostly hiding, and the skies are grey and hanging low – but then it IS the season for staying inside, cozying up with loved ones, tea, crafting and board games.
Although we miss the traditional white winter weather, we really do enjoy that full winter gear is not needed every time we go outside. And the grey skies still makes for pretty pictures (but please send a smidgen more frost please?). So I’ve decided to embrace and celebrate the greyness with a round-up of some of my favourite grey skies shots from the past couple of years – preferably with clouds for that extra drama!

So… cloudy days are okay, I think! But never the less I,m still crossing my fingers for a patch of white winter this year ;)
Great ways to while away a grey day indoors:
Reading: “Shades of Grey” by Jasper Fforde – always ingenious, amazing and fun, this chromatic tale of a society where one’s fate and status is determined by your level of colour perception is one of my favourite Fforde novels.
