Salford, Friday 29th December 2017

Camped by a Christmas tree and warmly wrapped in a throw

out of the way of the wind and the snow

Zedding at moments in front of the TV

yet waiting for time that mum and dad call for tea.

Mr frosts return

Salford, 11th December

They said the mercury was rising today

Well, someone didn’t inform Jack Frost and his winter imps

For as I write, sat perched in a chair by a radiator

They appear to have left pretty patterns

All over peoples car windows and roofs

Seems like he’s skipped across the skies too,

As there’s a definite blue streak across Salford skylines

autumn leaves (p) Brian F Kirkham 2017

The change in seasonal colour came quickly this year,

some might say the bright sparks at the weather office got caught out

summers hand seemed to draw into the autumn days

and while winter popped up in the chill of the western wind

the leaves stayed green for a week or two more

till one day the trees said they’d had enough

and the leaves 🍁 turned like traffic lights from green to red

taking on tones from amber to orange, from red to brown ,

toughening up to face the hardness of winter

as they dropped to the floor below

and the welcome to walkers travelling on this carpet ?

the crunch of leaves 🍁 saying hello 👋

When i saw this prompt from cees black and white challenge, I

expect you knew the response you see – It’s blooming

Autumn, they cried!

The weather’s bound to be bad,  said some we’re gearing up for winter

Hot climates moved back, said others, towards the equator…

Everyone’s thinking of heading where its currently Summer,

Relax – I said, enjoy the White Christmas!

Clouds – a reflection from inky

Now living during autumn 🍂 in the north of England, you tend to see a few of these.

When the wind makes its way east or west, they tend to follow its path

They’ve got funny names as well …. cumulus is the cloud ☁️ shape they use on the tv weather forecasts

When they expect a change it goes from a white cloud to a rain 🌧 cloud, if there’s a chance of sun ☀️, they put a cloud with the sun behind it…⛅️

The long thin ones are stratus, whilst the fast movers are nimbus club these together and you get nimbostratus and the really big ones cumulonimbus (don’t like being out when they turn grey)
