Magical March - mist

March sees the start of the misty season in the valley.  It generally only settles around the river in March, but gradually creeps higher and higher, getting thicker and thicker in the valley as winter continues.  It casts beautiful shadows while it plays with the sunlight trying to shine through.  I love the soft grey light that it creates.  And there's nothing like going for long walks through the mist to look for fairies. 

It does however, make an old farmhouse like ours very dark in winter.  So I'm delighted to announce that the Minister for Finance has approved the Minister for the Interiors' proposal for major capital works to commence in the lounge room.  Beginning with the installation  of a skylight, effective immediately.  Woo Hoo! Let there be light!
