Mrs H of Cornwall suggested that this shot might be nice on cards for this time of year, I think because the dew creates little sparkly bits like frost--so that's 'seasonal'.

It appears, from comments received yesterday, that the black and white pictures I post are popular, even if they are not a favourite of Mrs H of Cornwall. So here's a black and white treatment of the one I posted yesterday.

Every time I pass and look up at it, particularly on a good weather day, I think "I should remember to bring my camera with me really...". Obviously,… Continue reading A Familiar Tree
