Molehills and Mountains


MolehillA frost down today but it didn’t deter the moles… On a playing field in Cardiff I noticed the many molehills.  The soil uplifted by the moles looked freshly dug.  I wonder how the moles adapt when the soil is frozen solid in a deep, hard frost?

Other things  I noticed on a brief walk during my lunch break : the lichen and moss on trees and the different textures of bark.

I also noticed an absence of something today … the sight of hills and mountains.  From this urban vantage point in Cardiff, I couldn’t see any of the familiar hills and mountain sides I’m used to.  Many years ago working from a multi-storey office in Cardiff, I could see the hills in the distance.  It felt re-assuring.  It also reminded me how I was in a very different landscape working in Cardiff.
