I must be a British cliche, because quite a few of my posts mention the weather, the good and the not so good. Our prevailing winds are usually from the south west which brings us mild, but often wet weather. Sometimes though it changes direction and blows from the north east. Back in 2018 the “Beast from the East” brought heavy snow to much of Britain but here on the west coast we had a spell of cold sunny days, frost and some dustings of snow. There are reports that a similar system could be on its way, and certainly for the past few days we’ve enjoyed the most picturesque winter weather.
So, as my last post was very text heavy, here are some pictures taken on our recent frosty walks. Today’s in particular was like walking through diamond dust, though I couldn’t capture that properly.
And in case you’re worried about poor Robin*? S/he’s getting looked after by us, along with all our other garden friends.
Keep warm, keep safe.
Until next time
*”The north wind doth blow, And we shall have snow, And what will the robin do then, Poor thing? He’ll sit in a barn, And keep himself warm, And hide his head under his wing, Poor thing!” Traditional rhyme, author unknown.
