Stately tree reigns over dried heather

The heather of the beautiful National Park De Hoge Veluwe in the Netherlands is very dry. And summer hasn’t even started yet! Where pink used to be the main color, the natural carpet is now a dull brown.

Back to January

How I hate to take down the Christmas decorations. Each January it is tough to say goodbye to the green, silver, and red.

My sweet reindeer, resting comfortably once more in their basket in the attic. The tree lights are dimmed and my little evergreen is outside in the cold.

Two weeks of warmth, joy, and freedom rushed by. Monday it is back to normal. Back to work.

But I’ll keep on lighting candles throughout the year! And I put my two friends on the left on top of my bookcase. They’re inseparable! And too cute to be stuffed away.

Welcome to January. 😀

We never look deeply into the quality of a tree; we never really touch it, feel its solidity, its rough bark, and hear the sound that is part of the tree. Not the sound of wind through the leaves, not the breeze of a morning that flutters the leaves, but its own sound, the sound of the trunk and the silent sound of the roots.
