A little blast of wintery stuff

Good evening

Absolutely no doubt this morning that winter had arrived - when I peaked through the curtains it looked like someone had sprinkled the garden with icing sugar - all glittery & white. A sprinkling of snow and a layer of ice - very pretty.

I had to stop on the way to work this morning to post some letters - I thought this view was rather pretty;


I much prefer the cold weather to the wet - much easier to wrap up against the cold - I counted 15 separate items of clothing this morning! I felt rather like the main character in this book the boys used to love;


I took a few photos before I left the house - just a few seconds outside in my pj's was enough!

 Frozen leaves - we've given up in the battle with them.


 A neglected for the winter summerhouse - the spiders are welcome to live there for a while, its too cold to sit out there at the moment.

 An early morning departure - I wondered if they were off somewhere warm?

The sun starting to rise - love the silhouette of the bare branches against the sky.

I wonder what it will be like here tomorrow - the boys would love a snow day but I think that's a bit hopeful.

See you soon

What a lovely morning, I haven't seen the Alan Ahlberg book, I think I need to go to the childrens library and find it. I am wearing lots of layers too!

Your winter pics are very pretty. You may keep your cold though. Sitting at 30C downunder today. Perfect for a spot of early morning gardening.
Have a fab weekend,

Lovely pictures, especially the vapour trail in the sky. If that's not a kick up the bum to get a flight sorted I don't know what is! xxx
