That critical moment

The tea shop*. Oh, what a wonderful creation, far from the madding crowd, we hope.

But now we reach that critical moment. The future lies before us and the choice depends on the answer to a simple critical question.

"Is there any more tea in the pot?"


*To my many American robot readers:  You cannot replace "tea" with "coffee" and expect to understand this concept.

A brisk walk

A brisk and bracing walk to start the new year.



Also a cold and muddy walk, with no tea shop at the end.

I hope this is not a sign for the rest of the year.

Tight grip

This old tree intends to show that you can indeed take it with you.

Pictured at Avebury, where no stone is left unturned.

Turning Year

Farming takes a break at this time of year, in the fields at least. If you have already planted it, then leave it be and wait. If you haven't planted it, then it is too late until the rain and the frosts subside.
