Tribute to Winter


Winter here in Ireland lasted two and a half a day... So what else do you
expect to do from me..? ;-) My winter are not just memories, there are another ways to live it... Enjoy a piece of it with me...
„...it was fine, coming through the snow as the red sun was rising and showing against the black tree-trunks! As you went along in the stillness, every now and then masses of snow slid off the branches suddenly with a flop, making you jump and run for cover. Snow-castles and snow caverns had sprung up out of nowhere in the night – and snow bridges, terraces, ramparts – I could have stayed and played with them for hours. Here and there great branches had been torn away by the sheer weight of the snow, and robins perched and hopped on them in their perky conceited way, just as if they had done it themselves. A ragged string of wild geese passed overhead, high on the grey sky, and a few rooks whirled over the trees, inspected, and flapped off homewards...”

Kenneth Grahame - Wind in the willows

...the words of Mr. Otter about his journey to his friends through the winter forest...

U nás vonku na palmy každý druhý deň sneží, potom prší, do toho svieti slnko, takže majú vody dosť... V akejkoľvek forme...:-)
