There are two views here - one from my landing window at half past seven this morning and the other of the sheep at half past eight. A very wintry scene after two inches of rain yesterday.
I found two quotes which fit the bill. Which one you feel is right probably depends upon whether you are a "glass half full" or a "glass half empty" kind of person. Must say that at this moment (9.15am) the first one appeals to me most, but as I sit typing this in the hall I see that the sun is shining through that landing window, so maybe in a little while I will find the second quote more to my liking. Have a warm day!
"Withering and Keen the winter comes
While comfort flies to close-shut rooms," John Clare
"If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?" Percy B Shelley.
