    • Ah Doron,we have been so lucky here in the Borders, a sprinkling of snow, some cold winds, but beautiful days almost throughout the winter – so far, that is. Daffodils have their buds showing. We are just hoping that the Cheviots will shelter us from the worst of the winter, as it is coming from the West. I hope your winter has been not too harsh, and that you will have a good 2015. I like your latest paintings on your blog very much. I’m trying out some different techniques myself at the moment, it is very interesting, sometimes I think I am getting there, sometimes it is a mess – but I shall carry on trying to get the right feeling – trial and error. It is good to have the time to experiment a bit rather than working to a strict deadline. Cara X

    • Hi, Maggie. Thanks for your comment – yes, I go along Nun’s Walk, which winds high above the river, almost every day, so have many shots of this part of the river, but every time is a little bit different. We have had an amazing winter so far, with these clear skies, and only this morning just a smattering of snow. Bring on Spring, far as I am concerned….
