The New Forest looked at its most stunning, I never tire of the soft glowing winter light this time of year. Ever since our walk the weather has reverted to dull, cloudy and mild, so by posting these pictures, I am reminding myself of that lovely day!
|Sparkling clear light and very long shadows|
|The gorse bushes in flower|
|Silver birch trees|
The whole area was dotted with newly made ponds of water caused by the incessant rain. It was rather marshy in places. We discovered some lovely funghi, some growing from the dead gorse
|Yellow Brain Fungus|
|And some growing from felled logs|
Now that the decorations are down and the feasting has ended, I am hoping for some nicer winter weather so we can go on more walks and spend some time clearing our ever messy swamp of a garden.
Happy New Year!
