February, a form Pale-vestured, wildly fair,— One of the North Wind's daughters, With icicles in her hair. ~Edgar Fawcett February might bring the glimmer of Snowdrops or even the tips of Daffodils poking through the ground but never be fooled by that because February is still most definitely winter in England.
"Light in Nature creates the movement of colors." ~ Robert Delaunay Another shot taken with my Len's Baby which created the bokeh stars from the droplets of water clinging to the grass. The rainbow colours dancing through them was the result of the low sun passing through the droplets making a tiny rainbow on its way.
"The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper." ~ Bertrand Russell Sometimes you have to get down on your hands and knees to see them properly though. Because down on the ground there are small wonders waiting to be discovered, mini little worlds of life waiting to be discovered. You just have to get down into their worlds with them to really see their true beauty.
"For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed." ~ Khalil Gibran And the Autumn comes and with it there is light, colours and water, sent to decorate the world and make it look beautiful in its last moments of life before winter comes and sweeps it all away.
“October sunshine bathed the park with such a melting light that it had the dimmed impressive look of a landscape by an old master.” ~ Elizabeth Enright I am a summer person. I mourn its passing all through the long winter months but at least at this time of year you can still find traces of it lingering on some October days.
"Fungi are the grand recyclers of the planet and the vanguard species in habitat restoration" ~ Paul Stamets They are also incredibly beautiful and some of them are bloody delicious too especially when cooked in butter with garlic. I think like so much of out natural world we take these strange and wonderful things for granted and yet they are an vital part of our ecosystem. Without them, well we don't know exactly what would be the outcome of such a situation but there is quite a bit of science that indicates it would not be a good thing.
Water doesn't belong to us, be we belong to water: when it has passed through our fingers and pores and bodies, nothing separates us from earth.” ~ Emmi Itäranta I love how the trees seems to be bleeding into the water. The soft ripples make them look almost as if they have been painted into the watery world below. This is a local pond which is home to a rather large amount of Ducks, Geese and Swans that nest on the couple of little islands that sit out in the middle of it. It is also, I have discovered, home…
"The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes We have had a fairly warm hot summer by UK standards which has rumbled into September but the last few days that seems to have gone by the way side and you can feel Autumn is in the air and see its beautiful colours starting to tinge all the trees.
