Early this morning Jackie wandered around the garden photographing
the overnight frost
and misty garden views.
Later we shopped at both Tesco and Lidl, by which time the mist and intermittent periods of sunshine had both lessened. We continued into the forest in search of more atmospheric scenes.
Grey ponies dotted the hazy moorland landscapes flanking Burley Road, where
skeletal trees were silhouetted against the rapidly changing cloudscapes.
The ancient steep viridescent verges alongside the hollowed out Charles’s Lane gathered bright green moss and ivy. Tall trees slipped into the
periodically descending mist, and the sun was once more a graven orb.
This evening we dined on Jackie’s spicy paprika pork and savoury rice with which she drank Hoegaarden and I drank more of the Fleurie.
