After a mild, wet and windy November, we’re promised a stretch of cool, calm and sunny days this week – a reward to soggy west coasters for our patience, perhaps.
But before I break out my long johns and sunglasses, I’m taking a moment to celebrate the strange beauty that all that rain brought to our garden (photo above) and forest floor (photo below). It’s a beauty that defies conventional definitions – but it’s lovely nonetheless, and you can find it frequently in nature’s annual cycle of decay, if you look closely enough.
Now, with a significant birthday rapidly approaching, I only wish I could see a similar beauty in my own natural decay!
