The weather outside is…….

IMG_7978This is a photo of the statchoot of… now let me get this right.. Mercury or Hermes, with a winged sandals and hat, and carrying the caduceas a winged staff entwines with two snakes. he stands in among  the tea bushes on the roof garden of a very posh hotel in London. It seems an age since I was standing there myself. It also seems an age since I stood outside in warm fine (not raining or blowing) weather…. I’m not sure why Hermes was the chosen deity, whether for his being the messenger of the gods or the god of trade, athletes and sports, the hotel is Art Deco after all so all associations could apply.

I could do with a bit of the sun on my back at the moment. The wind has dropped but there seems to be a sneaky draft around the ankles. We went for a walk yesterday, it being the season of doing that sort of thing, not today though far too inclement for more than a short walk and I fear yesterdays amble may have been too far for my ow’d girl who is rather stiff and wobbly today. So were doing our best to keep the home fires burning, the cat off the stove and the ow’d lass wrapped up in a blanket, as for me I can still feel that nasty sneaky draft.
