Winter Woodland Walk

We dropped the children of at my husband's parents, and went for a long walk.

In Flanders you find "kapellekes" (shrines or littel chapels) for Mary everywhere.
The interior of a little chapel.

Winter growth on the forest floor.

Brown can be pretty, when you take a closer look.

New life on a dead tree trunk.
Even at noon the sun is low in the sky, but it does create pretty cloudscapes.

Sun setting.

The local wildlife ...

... is curious!
Bright roosters.
Their creative home.

My darling husband looking good.

Afterwards we got Chinese take away and watched Downton Abbey, with the sofa next to the wood burning stove: cosy!
