• An old friend on a bitter winter's day

    Yes, like so many people in Wales and The Midlands we got a huge dump of snow last night. Woke to that so distinctive white glow on the bedroom ceiling and the sound of.... well absolutely nothing outside. The muffler blanket of snow has smothered everything. A few blackbirds squabbling over the hips on the wild rose, a spotted woodpecker getting all bossy with the tits on the nuts, and that's about all that was going on. It's been blizzarding most of the day - 6" of snow and white fields, white sky to the point where I came over a rise and lost all sense of perspective - a huge white tablecloth of a landscape was suddenly one dimensional with its criss-cross creases of hedges and fences and the occasional scar of a tree or a copse. Ploughed down the hill to see that old friend, the ash pollard, & all is still well with it. Flat or is it soft light? Sometimes it's hard to know, but anyway here it is in spartan winter splendour.
