Today’s photo a day prompt is “nature”. So here are a few random photos that I’ve taken in our garden recently or whilst on local walks.

Also, another “100 word challenge”.

The joys of nature in winter are …

Cold crisp days, sunshine, wispy clouds and blue skies. Also clear night skies, perfect for star gazing and watching meteor showers.

Frosts, which emphasise the natural patterns all around us.

Trees free of their summer leaves, plants that provide winter colour and new growth hinting of spring.

Birds that visit our garden, other creatures that live here permanently.

Sunrises, sunsets, long shadows and silhouettes.

Grass that grown despite our attempt to cultivate and tame.

The sound of birdsong, wind rustling the branches. Rain falling, rippling in puddles and our pond.
