Jesus, a primitivist stone crucifix

This one is on a crossroads between Chaulieu and Frésne-Poret.

Plum in Blossom.

It's only February, and the plum (or gage?) at the bottom of the drive has sprung into blossom.

Daffodils are bang on time — just before St.David's Day.

Midlle of February. Snowdrops everywhere.

The Thaw.

More snow in Normandy, and another close-up of it slowly melting on a wooden bench.

See also another "Thaw" composition on my "Reading Art" blog.

White on white. Winter.

A frosty morning, followed by snowing, or pretending to snow today. Hopeless! The sun has come out, time for a dog walk.

These pictures are from mid-January, when it snowed seriously for a few days.

Near Chaulieu, South Manche.

The Rot.

An oak felled in winter showed it was already rotting. How sad. And makes you think that even the mighty and big may bear the rot hidden inside.

In winter the farmers busy themselves with cutting down trees and trimming hedges. This is a piece of the winter carnage at a nearby village of Pont d'Egrenne.

Mid January, snow.

Basketful of Cones.

In winter, around Christmas time and onwards, the firs that grow by my gate shed loads of cones. When there's too many of them, I sigh and pick them. For the fire. They burn quickly and give the fire a full, slightly dizzying flavour.
