The Island has a wintry feel to it.
The Machair has long since died back.
The vegetation for the most is a dull green and brown.
However, the sky overhead has often proved to be a real winter warmer.
Most mornings this past week,
we have drawn back the curtains to a colourful sunrise.
Yet, each one has been different – no two sunrises have been the same.
It is just the way the weather has been,
but the sunsets have not matched the sunrises.
Often a dense layer of cloud has come in to mask the sunset.
Friday proved to be the exception.
Sunrise was a a damp squib even if it was bonfire night!
Sunset however was a great improvement, preparing for the evening’s events.
Throughout the week the clouds have often been dramatic.
Even when the sunset has been masked
the clouds have taken on a red hue.
Saturday’s sunrise was no disappointment.
Would the weather hold for the visitors we were expecting.
The ferry from Oban was on a yellow alert due to the rising winds!
The warm glow fills the lounge.
Outside the birds are enjoying breakfast too.
This is ‘Life on Tiree’.
