Yesterday I walked to Hirst Wood to explore and see what the seasons were doing.
Surfaces were matted, grasses and stems formed mouldering bleached webs, here and there signs of new growth.
I decided to make some eco print bundles, wanted to catch this gentle, sparse time of year. Surfaces subdued by snow and ice, yet holding a grace and fragility.
Yet all this is punctuated by small islands of green - moss on boulders, lichen covered tree trunks and now just emerging the early signs of bluebells. I decided to create my own green islands in the calm quiet sea of the pale woodland floor.
Someone else had been making things... things with coloured yarn... and then more green islands.
