Frosty seeds and winter trees

This Solar print was inspired by my moonlit frosty dog walks. The seedheads were encrusted with ‘fairy dust’ reaching out to the moon.

This solar print was inspired by my photos of trees in winter, taken In what I call the ‘Fairy wood’; a beautiful, quiet, well planted woodland where we often walk. Every day there is something new to see. The Green Woodpecker has been a recent visitor. My dogs love to chase squirrels and jump over the piles of logs, the woodland is a natural Green Gym.

Colours of autumn warm our hearts


berries warm our hearts

Autumn’s rosy leaves

Warm our hearts as

We wander along the

Sheltered golden path

Of birch, ash and larch,

Weaving magical tales to

Tell by the glowing hearth.

Happy National Poetry Day!

I love to write poetry, however there’s nothing more perfect to do on an autumnal evening than sitting in my fireside chair with a cup of tea or a glass of Damson gin reading from a favourite poet in one of my lovely old poetry books.

Today we’re celebrating everything to do with poetry on National Poetry Day. Enjoy reading a poem today. 🙂  Who are your favourite poets?

Forlorn Hellebore


Hellibore

 

Hellebores,

Forlornly maudlin,

Winter warms,

Skylarks’ playfully soaring

on a

blossom filled morning.

Zealous Hellibore

dizzily dawdling.

Frozen guardian


Frozen guardian

Frozen guardian of

A magical glade,

A golden mantle lain;

Icy jangles,

Crispy tangles,

Fancy dangles

Reflecting wishes

and tales from far

Off lands.

Humble Bee

Humble bee,
Survivor
Of insect
Nerve agent:
A statement
To persecutors
Whose purses
Bulge
At our bees
Expense.

Secure in a
Secret haven,
This furry friend
Works wisely,
Minutely,
It’s prize,
Protective
Pollen.

Graceful Bee Orchid


image

Along a shady glade,
A petite purple spire,
Whistfully waves.

Miniature mouths
Melodious,
Like a cherubic
Chorus,
Releasing
Ethereal,
Spangled
Golden dust.

Wild bees
Gleefully graze
On the graceful
Bee orchid.
