Choulex is a short drive away and my favourite place to walk at the moment. It has a little nature reserve so even in the winter there are at least some water birds and birds of prey to look for. We were out walking there this week when Mark took a day off and we managed to pick the best day of the week for the weather. It's been very dull and misty so the colours are all very muted but Wednesday gave us a little glimpse of sunshine. I don't like sketching trees usually but I love their bare branches and shapes in the wnter.
Around Geneva, when the leaves come off, you can see how very many trees have mistletoe growing on them. On some, there's so much mistletoe it looks as if the trees are still green! I loved how the mistletoe looked like Christmas baubles on this one.
