Photo-bomb!

It’s been so long since my last post that I don’t think I’ll even try to recapitulate in words… Instead, I give you a photo-bomb that pretty much covers the entire time! So sit back, relax, and scroll on…

A light in the dark

As I hurried out today to catch some daylight in this dark season, a bright spot in the dying greenery caught my eye. I didn’t actually believe it until I was standing but a foot away staring straight at it.

My rose-bush, that withered in the summer draught and never managed to put forth flowers again after the rains came back, had apparently not given up the fight in spite of snow, storms, frost and darkness, because there it was: a single, perfect flower – in November!

To paraphrase sir Terry Pratchett: a tiny “Yes!” in the dark 😀

Winter ambivalence

It’s cold and it’s dark, but there are also brilliant days, and even when overcast or snowing there is a particular light to the short days…

There’s always beauty, even at the darkest of times… 🙂
