November Light and Shade

To have shadows we must first have light

This morning was a stunning blue-skied one here in the Suir valley. So myself and himself laced up our boots after breakfast and headed for Gurteen Wood, just above Kilsheelan village. Of course we were avoiding our current work in progress,

this …

and this …

                          

But we got rewarded by this …

and this …

 

Imagine, blossom on a rowan tree in mid-November!

and there’s more …

A stone wall softened by a cushion of moss and lichen in shades of green from grey/green to bright green.

So, tell me where have you found light in November’s shade?

  1. Hallo Margaret, very many thanks indeed for ‘liking’ my ‘reading’ on wordpress today, you are exactly the gentle shove I need in order to update the goddamn page! Tomorrow, I promise! Very many thanks also for leading me to your own magnificent blog! I love it when people let a little of their real life into such sites – an unripe tomato, shadows on the grass, an uprooted toilet – fantastic!!! Also, an inspiring philosophy. Keep up the good work! All Best, Sara

    1. Delighted to have you here Sara – you crossed my path through The Short Review. Thanks for your comments on my blog and I’ll be popping over to you again, looking forward to your updates already. BTW I love your illustrations!
