Early morning view from my window in Brittany.
Happy New Year. I have been quiet so long because we were away where there is no convenient internet connection. We celebrated the New Year in Brittany once again. Some of the the things I love about winter in Brittany are the quiet and solitude; the comforts of our home there and the wonderful, stark scenery of the countryside. Here are some photos that say more than I can:
The stands of bare trees and the huge skies
The old stone buildings with slate roofs.
The architecture of the trees.
The twisted beams in our cottage, hewn from oak trees and shaped by hand 250 years ago.
Blazing wood fires that heat the whole house.
