Spellbound-the candy wrap series

I am convinced that there are dancers trapped in these trees. I stare at them and they are slowly dancing on this white carpet.

The broken bench-the candy wrap series

Onto the fields-the candy wrap series

Mysterious, this image to me is like a shawl: snow and pink dusk come towards me ready to envelop me, perfect stillness that gives me time to get lost in my own thoughts, happy and at random this afternoon.

In the garden-the candy wrap series

Somehow the red candy wrap has turned into a bizarre shade of magenta, there is a ghostly presence and an improbable sun right there above the trees...

The small bridge-the candy wrap series

A candy wrap became a filter...

Let me introduce you to Garfield

Gorgeous, inquisitive and funny cat! He loves eating and being around people!

Tilly the hunter

Let me introduce you to gorgeous and cheeky Tilly, she tackles whatever is vaguely edible and even humans, but only for the sake of making her presence known!

Into the afternoon III

The tennis court I

I wanted to ask Pat to open the tennis court for me, I am sure it would have been great fun to try playing tennis on a snow covered court!

At the gate I

Blurred begonias I

The birds house

Into the afternoon-the bridge series

The blue boat in the garden

A touch of blue in this snow covered garden...

Spooky at 4 pm in the countryside

Beautifully spooky!

The frozen leaves I

Blurred pine needles I

It was not because of a very strong wind, it was me moving my camera from side to side and having fun!

Window seat VI-the train series

speeding through the Derbyshire countryside on a crosscountry train just before Christmas, I really thought I was in wonderland!

Towards the fields behind the farm

Same view, different weather...

...still beautiful, moody and a bit spooky

There is bread under the snow

as the saying goes in Italy, perhaps elsewhere too.

It is cold outside...

What Mom crochet over the xmas period

...among other beautiful, warm and colourful items, Mom created a pair of fingerless gloves for our friend Pat, who often works outdoors on her farm in Derbyshire. Mom is modelling her creation in this shot.
