The greyest month of the year is coming to an end. (It should have been the whitest, yet we’ve had more rain than snow; more warm and dark than cold and sunny days.) I can finally notice a few good changes – the evenings are getting longer and I’m getting fed up with spending so much time indoors.

The so called normal slow routine with goods books and rich food will have to be swapped for more vigorous activities. And I can’t wait! (To be honest now even watching gardening programmes disrupts this cycle: I have to keep reminding myself that it’s a bit too early even for indoor sowing; so much more can happen in February, which is known for its blizzards.)

Meanwhile… here are a few beautiful moments. Even grey can be graceful, don’t you think?

And the last two are my absolute favourites. Every autumn our pond floods, bringing much grief as this kills my plants, yet when it freezes the edges are turned into masterpieces. In my opinion Nature is the best artist on this planet.

How was your January? Whiter or more colourful than mine?
