... Quirky & inconsequential musings from my side of the garden gate

"Winter Landscape" Daniel Van Heil
Today's leaden sky is like a Dutch landscape, with bare charcoal tree branches limned against blue grey clouds. A cold wind has swept down from the Maritimes, bringing with it the threat of rain. The ground gives a little under my step, but beneath the spongy top layer there is only the unyielding hardness of not-yet-wakeful earth.
We are three days shy of April, but were the calendar not proof of this, I would be inclined to think it was really mid-January.
