It was a cold morning but the sun put on a brave face. In fact you often wonder if the sun doesn’t have a sense of humour radiating apparent warmth when everywhere is covered in ice. Or perhaps it’s being smug.


You see the same tree week after week with no sign of life and you wonder where the life will be coming from in a few months from now.

You also wonder what is it that makes it alive when it is dead to all intent and purposes. It may be resurrected in spring but so are the dead, so can the tree said to be living?


Well, dead or alive it’s still an assuring sight in its same position through all seasons and all weather.
