Abstract Landscape Painter. Rural Dweller. Lover of Modernist Art and Design.
Apart from the odd stripe and spot in the landscape, the snow has mostly gone. Such a large quantity has miraculously disappeared overnight. There is a tentative return to colour, where the morning sun picks out the pale ochre of a distant field and the orangey-green of a lichen covered tree.
What I also notice is an increase in sound - skylarks singing, sheep bleating and a flock of birds ‘chat-chatting’ in a treetop. They are SO loud, as if they are all over-excited and are trying to speak all at once!
As we return from our walk, I see a hare running up and over the curve of an adjacent field until it disappears over the horizon.
