Its gey dreich – Ink in a Watercolour Moleskine

This is drawn with black ink to match my mood. After almost five weeks of wonderful snowy conditions we have regressed towards the usual wet, gloomy conditions typical of an Edinburgh January. I’m already missing the wonderful colours reflected in the snow. Most of the weather is now from the Atlantic, warmed by the gulf Stream which gives us reasonably high temperatures when compared with the mainland of Europe. Snow and coldness comes when the wind is from the north or east. Never mind. There is still time for more snow and, if the mild weather continues, it means we will have an early spring – unless it rains!!!

PS “Gey dreich” means “Quite dismal and overcast”
