Winter is not my favourite season of the year….but even so it does have some high spots.
For me a walk through a Beech Wood in winter is rather magical….it is all those skeletons. Some tall and straight, some rather bent, no matter which, a winter skeleton takes some beating….. even wind damage takes on a different look. It does help when last years leaves still grace the woodland floor, somehow the wind seems unable to do more that make minor adjustments to leaf mosaic. The whole wood-scape takes on a new persona
