Winter trees

It’s been a cold and wet week so today’s fine weather has been a bonus. I went for a walk this afternoon with trees on my mind. The skeletons that emerge in winter, structure visible and reaching skywards, all angles and curves, lines. Their slender fingers reaching for the sun.

There were some surprises too – a gorgeous grevillea in bloom, a woolly bush likewise (I had no idea about their flowers before I spied some today), and a fine sunset.  Plus an aeonium arboreum and some violets. And the moon. Here are some photographs…
