The continuing freezing temperatures in the Britain made me think of this photo, taken back in December. Now I have cropped and enlarged it, it looks like a Christmas Tree bauble, a piece of intricate glass. I also imagine I see a cloaked figure, a woman I think, fleeing for her life on a galloping horse. Or else it looks like a Victorian woman’s reticule, soft velvet with a drawstring closure. Or perhaps one of Scrooge’s stash of money bags.
How it formed like this, suspended from a coat thread caught on a barbed wire fence up at the allotment, I have no idea. It just goes to show that we do not need to know the hows and whyfors and whats of something to see its wonder. When I found it, I thought the elements had left me a gift.

And a great it was, Tish!
Amazing, absolutely magical
Glad you thought so too, Deb.
That’s wonderful! What a discovery!
Lots of treasure hunting to be done during snowy intervals 🙂
Nice one, Tish! Very topical!
Definitely the swishing cloak of a fleeing Victorian heroine. Probably across the moors 🙂 Imagination is wonderful, once you plant the seed.
A wuthering heights sort of moment then 🙂
Funny this is ..I see all of that too.
A gift indeed – and one that you’ve returned to the elements!
Winter wonderment well seen. Definately a fleeing woman
I see the horse too, possibly it’s Demelza riding along the beach in the waves pursued by Ross…
The essence of a horse. Beautiful capture.
The sun came back down here … sunglasses, iced teas, test cricket with the Aussies, and all that.
You stay warm!
Triple vest day today. Good wishes much appreciated.
Makes me break out in goosebumps just thinking about it.
What a fabulous capture, Tish!
I think the elements definitely left you a gift. 🙂
Mmmm. Wonderful gift. Deaf and blind tiger with ear trumpet?
That’s a vision and a half, Kate 🙂
