Throughout the dark and grey days of winter, the gleaming trunks of the silver birch, brighten and shine. They look spectacular in the sun and moon light with their almost ghostlike iridescent quality. Recently I seem to notice them more than I ever have and Wildwood is an excellent place to run amongst them on a sunny afternoon.
Today I met up with a lovely friend and her two boys at Wildwood. Our children are now at the age where they can pretty much have the freedom to roam the park whilst us mums get to sit and chat. I was even able to sketch some silver birch trees and lucky enough to get some positive feedback from some mini critics.
