Well we got some snow, not as much as we expected, but enough to get me leaping out of bed this morning,the boys didn’t find enough snow but there was enough for snowballing.
I should have engaged brain though before I set foot out of the house and put my thermal leggings on under my trousers, it was cold out there. The new chickens weren’t sure what to make of it all, having never seen snow before, they were hopping around as though on hot coals rather than snow
The snow didn’t last long on the south facing slopes, as the morning got brighter, little by little.
You could see where the snow had been blasted through the dry-stone walls, by the high winds
The wind made it feel so cold up here it made my eyeballs ache and it was difficult to see what was in focus because my eyes were watering so much.
I was glad to get down off the exposed hill, a clump of gorse provided some colour
And I’ve got my eye on this fungi, I’ll try and follow its progress, over the next few weeks.
After a warming cup of tea, I took a turn around the field, I was being watched and it was getting brighter.
