misty morning on retreat


when you wake up early and you've already had two mugs of tea and it's too early to start sewing or eat breakfast, and you look out the windows to find you are in a magical world of mist then you must explore.


the hills that surround the house have vanished, there is total silence, the thick dense mist dulls all sounds and it is impossibly eerie.


soon though the real magic begins, the warmth of sun starts to gently and slowly melt away the mists,


and ever so softly it lifts and the hills start to appear


the sky turns from a soft grey to a gentle blue 



the limestone features of the hills appear


and suddenly you are no longer in a magical world of mist but back in the real one.

It is no less beautiful though.

  7. There was mist on the field at twilight on our wedding day and I forced my new husband to walk around in it with me until it was too dark to see anymore. Your morning seems magical. - Annie

  12. Beautiful! It reminds me of the Keats poem, To Autumn, 'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness!'
    It was very misty here on Tuesday, I left the village at seven and had to crawl along until I reached the next town because the visibility was so low. My favorite time of year.
