Saturday Morning Bike Ride

Dreich.

Dreary.

Dim.

Dismal.

Desolate.

Dull.

Dark.

Detailed.

Drippy.

Damp.

Drenched.

Dank.

Dreamy.

Dedicated.

Ducky(!).

drops(Snow).

Delightful!

Aren't there a lot of discouraging words beginning with d? Isn't an on-line thesaurus fun(!)

The weather this morning was indeed rather dreich which is what started me off, but despite that the ride was enjoyable, entertaining, energising, enthralling, exhilarating...OK I'm getting carried away here. It was fun, I'm pleased with the views I saw and the photos I took, I got some exercise and fresh air, I'm glad to be home and cosy again...

(1st time comment), i always liked your photos, even if the weather seems gray, the country is still pretty and and has it's own beatiful and deep colors. i always wish i could go on a rainy-day walk there (and rainy-day walks are my favourites). thank you so much for sharing!
and wow, you have snowdrops already? we've got snow (i'm in estonia) and snowdrops.. well i predict we get them around end of march or mid april, depending on how long the winter will be this year.

A wet ride, was it? Love the alliteration! Here I was thinking "misty and romantic". Obviously the dampness gets old quickly.

"Desolate" (which had me laughing) was perfect for that shot with the sad abandoned fleece on the wire. "Detailed" is beautiful. I love the spots of colour in "Dedicated". Also the drippy cows and the first three photos. Hard to resist a splendid bare-branched oak.

It's wonderful how even a chilly house feels toasty after exercising in the cold. Have a good week!
