a winter haiku...


Winter air
thick as branches
bare

4 months of winter down, 2 to go. We've just come out of the coldest part, the days are getting longer and lighter. 2 minutes and 41 seconds more daylight today than yesterday & it's no longer dark when I wait for the school bus in the evenings...this makes me happy. 
Almost there.

I love that Haiku. Thick winter air sounds like a perfect description.

Your son looks like a complete whizz with the computer. I wouldn't have a clue to bring out the yellow. Is it done on Photoshop?

Hello lovely Sarah, are your enjoying your days getting that little bit longer & lighter just as much as I am? Hope so. I'm so pleased I discovered your blog...so much kitchen gazing going on here now!

Sean does seem to have this knack with all things photographic, he has somehow figured out a colour setting on the camera that gives this effect...he said to me, 'I'll teach you the ways of the camera mum''!! So I'm waiting for my lesson. Bless him, he's only 9! : )
