January 9, 2020

An overcast day with intermittent showers and not much chance to work in the garden.  I wandered out in the rain to check the gutters directing water into areas of the garden and adjusting the outflow pipes.  Most of the day was spent the day clearing old paper work.

My reward was a spectacular sunset.  The cloud cover was low, and the sun reflected back on the clouds creating bands of muted grayish purple, pink and gold in the sky.  The fields in the winter landscape were set out in relief by a golden backlit sun.  The land is slowly coming green with the several weeks of rain.

Later, I went out to stand under a full moon in a cloudless night sky.  Clear starlight promises a sunny day tomorrow,  as forecast.
