Sounds of winter: day 23

Solstice carol. I chose the version by the wyrd sisters for the illustrations. And that concludes my presentation of solstice songs! It’s also an anticlimax for me after the solstice when I celebrate the longest night, the gradual return of the light, and my daughter’s birthday all at the same time. Christmas is gaudier and New Year is internationally exciting (though probably not this year) but the solstice is ‘my’ festival.

The photograph is birds on our local lake again, a few years ago. They skated around happily on the ice, and came rushing to greet visitors in the hope of treats, which they got in such abundance that they started to be picky! They are usually much less ‘tame’ but just as beautiful.
