I fall with the dusk in heavy shades of blue reduced to a silhouette stark outline ‘gainst fading sky as the night pools at my feet scented with the promise of spring rain
Another thing I spotted while out at the weekend was a few insects. I guess the sun is bringing them out even though it’s still pretty cold with frosts some mornings. There was another big bee but he flew away before I had a chance to take a photo! I’m not entirely satisfied with theseContinue reading “First Insects”
I’ve been out and taken a few photos as I’ve been feeling a bit better. The sun has been shining and it’s lovely out, although rather cold still. Hopefully next weekend I’ll have more energy and get out more if the weather is nice again. There are quite a few yellow flowers coming out atContinue reading “Yellow”

There were quite a lot of catkins dangling and some lovely green fresh honeysuckle leaves (I think). Also in this group of photos is the remains of a beechnut, just the outerContinue reading “Catkins and Other Springy Things”
It’s amazing how the buds are there growing, unaffected by the snow covering them. They just get on with it preparing for the spring with no doubt that it will come.
I’ve been through the dying days of autumn where all was drying, cracking, ending I’ve been through the silent days of winter where all was empty, frozen, lonely This feels like spring despite October written on the changing leaves Springtime came, false start at first with storms and sudden icy blasts of lies But thatContinue reading “Spring in October”
