Awakening

There’s something about transitions and thresholds that I find fascinating, yet I can’t pinpoint it. Walking the dogs today, I saw this very handsome, but still very sleepy tree.

Then  further across the fields I spy this blossom.

Last year’s oak leaves hanging on.

This little wood wasn’t here the last time I came to Eastern fields.

Hooray for hawthorn, creamy flowers in May, Hawthorn Jelly later in summer.

The tops of these trees are waking up, I must re-learn the tree names that I knew in infant school.

Oh the limitations of a phone camera!

A serpent awakening?

Let’s end with damsons – or sloes?

We’re all observing the late arrival of spring in the UK, and this is my second post for ‘Awakening’, this weeks photo challenge.

A bit of a sepia day

I don’t often get gloomy, but right now I’m in a bit of a low mood.  Several of the people in my world have been struggling with things for a while and today they are on my mind. 

This time last year was a period of loss, and we all know that anniversary’s are powerful.

I took this photo on this morning’s walk by the river, and the sun came out soon after. The good thing is a slight rise in temperature has improved my energy level, so I expect I’ll bounce back tomorrow.

Have a good week everyone.
