Crisp snow and bright blue skies, what more could you wish for? Well it wasn’t much help if you were trying to get from A-B; we’ve had a lot of fun and games in the snow and on the ice today, our guest ‘Mr Redcar’ car didn’t make it down the main road, so we’ve left his car in an acquaintances drive, we managed to get there without damaging their very handsome stone gateposts or his fine sports car (it has been suggested that Mr Redcar’s car would be more serviceable in snowy conditions if we turned upside down and used it as a sledge.)
‘The boys’ did make it down to the main road in the Landrover and have gone off to Oxford for the day, a dual purpose trip, to get Joe’s friend on his way home to London in time for school and to visit family. Mr Redcar and I came back home and spent the day messing about in the sun and snow with cameras; I’ve so many images I don’t know where to start, I’m overwhelmed; so I’ll duck out and leave you with the days strangest images.
My prized sheep skull, at sunset, with Christmas baubles for eyes (now faded for added effect) and an oozing icicle for added drama
One of the Bluebell chickens, again in the closing minutes of the days sun; who didn’t want to stand in the snow, so stood on the garden wall until benighted when I had to ushers her into the run, I found her ‘sister chicken’ hiding under a bush in the garden, she was also not willing to step in the white stuff, they can stay in their run tomorrow)
( her eye is covered by a nictitating membrane)
Mr Redcar will try and go home again tomorrow and I will try and select some snowy photos; in the mean time the boys are nearly home and they are hungry.
