Skeleton on the edge of the Moor


Longshaw Moor Edge, Derbyshire

The Pine has been windswept for most of its life, now bent and stunted, but still a haven of green.  The Birch has yet to shows its leaf buds but even in its undressed state presents a fine figure.  This may well be the edge of the Moors but the relatively mild winter, which has also been pretty wet, has ensured that the grass is still green.

Pretty as that may all be it will be a relief once Spring proper arrives and its arrival cannot come too soon.

  1. I grew up with three silver birches in the front garden and I came to love birches. Later, you know my religion, it turned out that there was a reason to love these trees, as well as the lime, or linden tree and the willow and hazeltrees. She is beautiful with and without her lovely light green leaves where the sunshine plays with the shadows of the leaves. I think she’s gorgious. 🙂
