A Wobbily Door

The bitter cold of this (so far) snow-free January let up yesterday. I could NOT resist taking a nice long “Thinking Walk” (to borrow a phrase from Winnie the Pooh).

I was rewarded with this beauty of a fishing shed and her wobbily door.

As you can imagine, I wasn’t alone. Lots of dog walkers. I bet most doggies protested two days ago when the wind chill was -20C. But yesterday was a glorious 10c above. And out we all trotted!

(Honestly, a girl has to have a flexible wardrobe to get through winters here.)

The crows were plentiful, too. They were calling to each other, foraging in the grasses and even, like this one, stopping to rest and appreciate.

At least that’s what I like to think he was doing. Or maybe he had me under surveillance.

Crows know things.

    That first shed shot is a lovely capture. It has been quite an interesting winter with some serious temperature swings. I can tell you that another deep freeze is headed your way – sorry 😦

    Janet, your photo of the shed with the wintery sky and icy water behind it is simply beautiful. I can’t imagine what your frigid winters must be like, especially since we’re having our hottest ever summer here.

        It wouldn’t last long here but it would be very welcome. 🌞

    Love the weathered look! And gardening fact about crows….if I don’t put bird netting over my freshly planted beans and peas, they pick them out. They Do know things lol

    Wonderful photos, looks like the perfect place to go for a ‘thinking’ walk! 😊

      It’s really lovely. And (sorta, kinda) part of our new neighbourhood. (Moved in very recently). More “thinking walks” there in the future, I expect. How’s your garden growing?
