Continuously renewed or self renewing, evergreens have always symbolised the eternal enduring green energy of life. Mother Nature wears a patchy grey and white coat, splashed with green, during the winter months. She paints highlights on the bare grey land, using ink from her green skinned holly tree.
I thought, as Winter draws to a close, I would share some of her winter green highlights from this year. Tiny green patches on an otherwise colourless earth. Each one a window into the pulsing green energy waiting just beneath the surface. Keepers of the light in darkness, the dark Cailleach and the Holly King, revealed in these patches.
