Here is the last light of 2010 - a view from my studio window at about 9.30 pm last night.
And below, the first light of 2011 at 5.20 am a few minutes ago. It's a fabrication, but it is fun that today is 1.1.11, isn't it? Fabrication or not, looks like it's going to be another hot day. The blackbirds and the Tui are raising their voices over the sweet dawn chorus outside the open front door as I write this sitting here. Too warm for a dressing-gown already.
