Slowly emerging

Despite the cold, snowy weather and limited daylight, nature is slowly emerging from Winter.
All around are small signs of growth and returning life:
Purple leaf buds on the elder tree -

Daffodil shoots poking through the earth -

A cap of rich moss on old stone -

Vivid green shoots through decaying leaves -

Tiny fungi peeping out from hedges -

A new painting takes shape in the studio -

And I am out from hibernation and looking forward to a creative 2015.....


  1. Interesting characters in your new painting Jane and I am looking forward in viewing it when finished.

  2. At last... Still underground, but I hope, soon She will arise in Poland too... No snow, heavy winds... weather like in Ireland here. ;)

    And I get with new plans for current life. New City, new job (I hope), new oportunities. Thanks to your wisdom and teachings too, Jane.

  3. What a joy to see today, Jane!

    We had temps below zero F; the only green around is a few houseplants in the house!

    Looking forward to seeing the completed new painting!!

  4. Lovely jane, we have snowdrops here and dafodils coming up too. but oh dear the weather is really your new picture and can't wait to see it and bless bless x Margaret xx
