The grass is greener than it should be, this side of winter showing a mildness of manner that belies the stormy season at its heart. A Sessile Oak stands brittle and strong, rain running down its fissured bark and turning to snow one drop at a time.
As I post this winter has finally come in force to these parts. The Snowdrops at the base of the Sessile Oak just outside the back of the house are completely covered but they will soon proudly poke through the snow as if they know they are its namesake.
