“Then it is dark; it is night where kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains.”
(from the story The Country Husband by John Cheever)

    Good lord, those are some pretty skies. I hope you have more of them in March too. My Dad is in London now, and is going to be traveling back and forth a lot in the coming months. I’m very jealous.

    Rushing through emails and visiting a couple of favorite sites, then I saw these photos and stopped short. I love it when that happens ~ when the sight of something feels almost physical, like the palm of a hand on your chest. Thanks for this.

    How perfect is this post? People like you remind me that the world is still worth living in.
    Loving the quote, too. And the skies-Maxfield Parrish would be so excited.

    wonderful how the meringue clouds and the rooftop stovepipes are in sync!

    Those clouds look like cartoons, all scallop-edged and perfect. It’s kind of ridiculously beautiful.

    love the quote! i’m quite excited about getting back to london after 3 months in nz on holiday to find the season turning, the days full of blue skies, the evenings full of golden rooftops and daffodils and crocus smiling at the sun.
