Bit fresh today - we're bracing ourselves, here in the UK, for the 'beast from the east' (why do we have to give a weather event a name?). Any hoo ... let me chuck another log on the fire before the cat complains even more.....
Thank you all for your lovely link ups to February's Scavenger Hunt words - there were some cracking photos and stories as well as some brilliant 'think-out-of-the-box' pictures. I actually think this month's were the best we've done for a long while! Well done us :D and if you have not seen all 14 link-ups just have a look HERE for a catch up :)
Sunday was beautiful - wall to wall blue sky and a sharp breeze, it felt almost springlike.
Circumstances, homework, coursework, weather, chores, well - life in general, have conspired against our walking habits, so to be able to get out yesterday was beyond glorious.
To feel the tactile trunks of the silver birches, albeit with brittle numb fingers,
to take lungfuls of icy air, feeling it burn its way down to my lungs
and to hear the crisp crunch of the frozen pathway
was more precious that I ever thought it would be.
The light was beautiful - clear and sharp,
we took so many photos.
Almost an indecent amount ...... thank goodness for digital!
Of course Moss was in her element - she smiled from her very shiny black nose to the tip of her tail.
On our way back, we stopped and nestled down in the dead bracken fronds and stalks,
giving just enough shelter from the breeze. We must have stayed at least 20 minutes.
Watched two buzzards soar and twirl above us.
Listened to distant voices and sheep.
Took a few more photos,
And for those who are eagle-eyed and bushy-tailed - our new list is up and running for March - let the madness begin :D
