Morning - it seems to be working this now!
So - to complete yesterday mornings walk to school!
It was the first time I wore my new wrist warmers out. Really quite pleased with these (using this pattern from Cherry Heart - they match my bag and scarf. You can't see the pretty buttons either - I shall try and take some photos of all of them soon.)
Back to yesterday morning - frosty leaves glistening in the sunshine everywhere.
Even the power lines sparkled through the trees
I know the novelty wears off, but every blade of grass is eye-catching, some still frozen solid, some thawed with a bead of water at the end. We are so lucky to be able to have time to notice these things. (Even 16 year old boys do know they are lucky - but don't like to say so very loudly!)
Then back home.
I like to leave the sedum as long as possible before cutting it back. I like it best at this time off year with frost on. I'm not sure how long this one will last this year as the rain made it grow somewhat larger than normal.
Frosted grasses are one of my favourites too.
Mustn't forget the geraniums
To be honest this photo didn't really work! The frost was catching the light and sparkling, creating little rainbow lights. Please use your imagination - it was very pretty!
At the weekend, some men started cutting back the fallen tree. I have no idea why they cut a hole in the trunk?
Smudge has declared it is too cold, and so will grace us with her presence, and follow the sun around the house, and curl up wherever she pleases. Clearly the rule about not being on tables is being adhered to!
At least Matt wasn't trying to work at here too!
This morning, Smudge is sitting with me, "helping" as I sit with my laptop!.
Enjoy your day. Keep warm. Isn't that wind raw today?
