Winter solstice: rain, low light Even as another smear of rain blows in our faces and the Winter mood appears to darken further

December 22, 2012

Even as another smear of rain blows in our faces and the Winter mood appears to darken further, there are signs of life and the hint of preparation. The Ash’s black buds glisten and promise something for the future. Bullfinches work the new hedges at Low Farm and the contact calls of a distant group of Golden Plover drift through the murk.

In the village, the scent of wood smoke drifts along the Street. Cottages are decorated and decorations have appeared in the church for Christmas as everyone clings on to the light on the shortest day.
