(You are quite right, this photo was not taken today...)
When we landed at Heathrow early this morning it was, as the Virgin Atlantic attendant advised us on arrival 'a bit nippy' and, in fact, pouring with rain.
At Heathrow some works are underway to improve the arrivals hall and replace the e-passport gates. The knock-on effect of that today was a massive queue, 8-10 people wide and stretching as far as the eye could see down the long corridor from the gate.
It took us the best part of an hour to wait patiently in line and then boost our daily steps by walking backwards and forwards between the lines in the arrivals hall. No photos but I am sure you can imagine the cheery shuffling throng!
As we left Heathrow and headed on the M25 towards the M1 there was a break in the cloud and a glimpse of the beginnings of colour in a field of rape seed under a blue and white sky.
It reminded me of these photos that I took last year, a few weeks later than this at Dunkirk when driving between Leamington and Bath.
I know that not everyone loves the bright yellow patches in the countryside but it does make a spectacular view..
