First snow of the season
Wednesday, January 30, 2019
It's snowing here on Dartmoor today...only lightly, but Tilly is thrilled nonetheless, and insists on going into the woods. Crossing over the stream, climbing up the hill, I follow my stalwart Animal Guide through tangles of holly, ash, and oak...
...leaving footsprints and pawprint to mark our passage into the green and white heart of winter.
