As the last day of 2011 draws to a close, some pictures from a moist Sussex garden to greet the New Year
rainfall captured on fallen leaves, decay amidst the green
waiting to feed life in the coming year.
Winter Solstice, Christmas, New Year, times of darkness, reflection and review, long chill nights for reminiscence, short days to scurry through, wrapped against the rain and wind. They bring to us an awareness of our own mortality, the bright lights of our decorations a ward against the darkness, our hope that the wheel of the year will turn and summer's brightness will be ours again.
