On New Years day we went for a long walk in the snowy woods. Hardly anyone was about. The trees were still, the birds quietly perched and the wind was at rest. It was a gorgeous day to be outside crunching about in the snow. And as we went deeper into the forest we came across these delightful woodland animals along the paths:
The rabbit and the owl greeted us as did a lovely octopus (unfortunately the light was not strong enough to highlight the features of this sea creature with my camera.)
Their presence marked the first day of the new year as inspiring. Bravo to the artist or artists for creating, with the elements of winter, such magical sculptures.
