Lovely rural winter scene poet, would be nice to see this again in spring, summer and autumn.

A lovely day for a walk, we are now being battered by strong winds and rain, definitely climate change. Be careful out there.
Thanks Poet.

Nice one Poet, been a while since I've been down there

I was wondering when we would get a snowy scene they are rare these days. Lovely Poet and thank you.

The snow hides the deep potholes that are present on Langtree Lane. Lovely photo but drive down there at your peril.

I can just envisage a young child letting go of his Mum's hand, longing to be the first to make footprints along there!

As per usual Dave i knew it was one of yours before i saw your pseudonym. As you know i drive up and down it every Thursday, it's worse than ever at the present time.
Colin take your camera and walk down the the lane and take a pic. With all due respect...............
''NO it wouldn't be lovely at all '' it's a disgrace !!!
It definitely looks nice covered in snow

This to me is England
A Lane of untrodden snow
It seems a shame to spoil it
To get where I must go

But the needs of life are many
And I must get to Town
So I’ll tread this Lane right softly
And hope more snow comes down.

DTease.

That’s lovely Dtease it’s surprising how one small rhyme can get the squeaking wheels moving in our brain muscles…Poet Laureate's abound on PAD. I must admit I like the comical ones,;o)

Immediately brought to mind an ode about winter by the classical Roman poet, Horace. Garry would probably approve as it is about “heaping logs on the fire and drinking wine.

Unfreeze, heap plentiful logs on the hearth. And produce your four year Sabine, Thaliarchus,
A fine and generous wine.

I don’t think they had sherry in those days but four year old Sabine was probably the next best thing!

That is so lovely Poet, as your photos always are.
DTease's verse brought another one to my mind by Robert Frost. One line that I remember.....
'The woods a quiet, dark & deep & I have miles to go before I sleep'

I am not sure whose responsibility it is to maintain these country lanes, I know some roads are termed Un Adopted, regardless this photo is a seasonal pretty picture.

Thanks for the kind comments . Nice the picture has inspired some poetical thought .
Helen , after about a half mile the lane comes to a fork which makes me think of another Frost poem . I know some will know which .
Old Reekie , it's fantastic to be able to translate from Latin as you do .
I read somewhere that the Romans considered it cultured to put water in ones wine .
Rock on Roy lol .

Poet, I think Upper Morris Street Club had the same idea about watering the wine, mind you, it was Greenhall’s so who could tell the difference?
