Walk Two Hundred and Twenty-Six – So lucky

jfwpgraphite
The weather is wet and windy but I managed to catch the one hour of clear skies during the first walk back from Xavier’s nursery. The wind was really fierce on my one mile walk back to the nursery, and I thought with gratitude of Robin uncomplainingly cycling ten miles each way to work in the dark and in this biting wind and rain. Same subject matter as usual.

Can't imagine so much darkness and bike riding to work in the dark. Wow!
What a lovely picture with the large expanse of white and the curved line of trees.

Ditto to what Tami and Hashi said! Beautiful and austere and soft at the same time. Is that snow between us and the trees or just cold fields?

Thank you all for your comments. Robin's daily commute is pretty impressive isn't it. and Jana - no that isn't snow - just grass but I wanted to focus on the fringe of trees. I don't think we'll get snow this year.

Have I said how much I love trees? In this little drawing you have captured the mood perfectly.
