Table of snow

The much anticipated snow arrived today. From the news you would have thought it was the end of days. It snowed for about 4 hours, then turned to rain.
This is our garden table. There’s something a bit melancholic about garden furniture covered in snow I find.

“I had a passion for maps”

We have quite a lot of ordnance survey maps in our house, because my wife is an ultra runner and loves getting up mountains.

GPS and SatNav are usually better for most navigation, but maps are good for planning journeys and also for the romance of travel.
The title is from Conrad’s Heart of Darkness by the way.
