Winter in the country
Driving the winding country roads from the coast in my divine new Forester, it was the symphony of greens which was the delight of this day. There are myriad greens in this landscape but in winter the new growth brings forth a richer than rich green - a vibrant, exuberant, vivid celebration of green. A shrill cheer of green. It sings from the trees and shrubs, saying that winter is lush and alive. And along those roads amid those greens are also the showy splashes of brightest yellow - the wattles coming into bloom. No wonder the birds are so happy. Winter is beautiful.
