All About Bravery

All About Bravery

There are no children in the playground
on this bright and sunny, but bracing, day.

Perhaps the wind is too cold for them?
Or, more than likely, for their minders?
Children don't feel the cold when
they are running around, but adults
idly sitting on benches do.

But aconites and snowdrops are willing
to brave the sharp winds and
stick their heads above ground.

Even the daffodils are fattening
and showing colour.

I've never before seen a January
like this in the Valley.

I sincerely hope we are not going
to have a severe shock to the system.
There is plenty of time left
for winter to punish us.

These are traditionally the coldest days of winter.

Keep good watchdogs about you these dark nights!
