Lucy Corrander - Bare Hedgerow in November

That captures that feeling of November so well.

"November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear."

Good old Walt ..... he knew his nature!

Lucy.....Wonder what you think of taking the same photo each month then putting them together as 12 to show nature over a year?

Hermes - and it's feeling more wintry every day. (And night!)

This morning, when I went out, moderately early, it was raining invisibly. You couldn't see it at all from inside. You could hardly feel it outside. But, when I came in, there were droplets densely packed over the surface of my coat.

I love it when its like that.

On the other hand . . . around mid-day . . . I was flapping away the gnats!

Gordon - interesting that you ask that.

I'm planning something along those lines - but for LOOSE AND LEAFY because I want to do this with several trees - which would overburden PICTURES JUST PICTURES.

I've already been picking out the subject matter - and am looking for a suitable patch of wild ground too.

Rather than show them after twelve months, my plan is to do moderately frequent updates on all of them.

I've chosen my oak and my blackthorn . . . still deciding on which elder and hawthorn. Not quite sure whether to stick with hedgerow trees or to include woodland ones too. The lighting is awkward in the woods and I'm mainly wanting ones I can stand back from so their developing shape can be seen.

So . . . don't watch this space . . . but do watch LOOSE AND LEAFY

Will do. It must be the St Andrews in us!

I love the photo of the hedgerow; it reminds me of my childhood, because I loved to play in the bushy, overgrown fence rows (as we called them). I made playhouses and bowers up in there.

Lucy Corrander said...

St Andrews, Gordon?

I think you must be muddling me with Esther!


Lucy Corrander said...

Hi Barbee

You've made me nostalgic!

Me too.

The best place to be was either on or in or under a bush or a tree. The denser the undergrowth, the better.

I even used to burrow my way through nettles. No longer know how I managed that!
