New surroundings

Let’s take a walk around my new neighbourhood.

Here is the front of the house (you can only see one half in this picture) —

It’s a bit like the Tardis: the house is bigger on the inside than it looks on the outside …

House.jpg

There are a lot of trees in the garden.

Don’t you think bark looks delightful in the snow?

Snowy bark.jpg

The pine trees

Look magnificent too.

After the snow,

A nearby path shines

In silver symmetry.

On the way home, a splash of pink

Brightens up the morning sky.

    • I think so – they were left by the previous owners and are half see-through cotton panels.
