The other day, rain brought fog over the snow and it reminded me of these photographs taken early last year. I know I seem to dislike the winter’s lack of flowers, but the snow and even the cold brings a different beauty to the landscape. The fog gives a dreamy quality to the snowy landscape that I really love, though we seldome see it. This is one of my favourite trees in our garden, so old and almost completely rotten, so not likely to be here for much longer, but the branches are so beautiful against the Northern sky. And those footsteps…. whose are they?
The photograph below was taken at the same time, of much younger trees in the field facing East, just starting off their lives in our often harsh climate. This part of the sky looks completely different! I hope you enjoy this bonus post in the midst of our pandemic and Flower a Day regular postings. Just for a change.
