60 January is green and gently rolling backwards.

Reflective view from the UK of 1st month.

2. THE HORIZONTALS .Where Branches Groove

Dead wood is never fully dead.

LIFE ON THE RIDGE

Readymade valleys and hills. The ridge collects small particles, drains moisture, directing, nourishing and protecting travellers on the straight and narrow.

Adventure and surprise awaits on the “ups and downs, “unders and overs”. It might look like utter chaos, but nothing could be more purposeful for Nature’s free will.

THE SUNNY SIDE OF WINTER 

In the sun, there is green to be seen. Lichen has locked itself in. Within the crack of the bend,  one life gives way to another .

3. IN THE PINK . With Air Berries and Ground Flowers

AIRBORNE SALMONS FLY FROM THE TREES

The colour of romance is in a tree’s berries, varied coral tones of salmon, from soft to vibrant.

AND A SOFT EARTH ELECTRIC

Heather. Ground cover with colour.  Typical of the British Isles, it likes bleak, open rugged terrain whether garden suburbia or country peaks.  Its subtle, smoky bluey green leaves, will change to yellowy browns.

Along with tiny purple pink flowers, it all looks as soft as feathers, but this ground plant has wiring for deceptive, rugged strength. And with small blossoms set at a neon glow, Winter’s own electric blanket does a perfect job for all below its cover.
