Day 178 Mile 178: ‘The Summer Time’s a Commin’. It seems that summer has finally arrived in the mountains; everything is sprouting and blooming, and while the weather is still humid it certainly seems to be bringing the often drab hills out in a riot of colours. I had a spare few minutes while on the way to the shops to buy ingredients for a very late breakfast and went for a run.
The heather is out, ushering in a palette which seems completely at odds with nature’s usual hues and the ferns are open, spreading their fractal architecture across the lower reaches of the landscape like a mat of green cobwebs.
The sky is still a bit grey and close but seems to highten the focus on the new shapes and colours to be found under it.
All in all, a bit special 🙂
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
Distance: 1824.3 meters recorded
(1 mile = 1609.34 m.)
Thanks as ever for all the support!
Today’s earworm seems utterly appropriate!
