Its not very Christmassy outside - thank goodness. OK so snow looks lovely on Christmas Cards but in practicality when you have horses to see to, chickens to look after and already find it hard walking because of a hip problem.... sorry folks give me a lovely sunny, crisp non-snowy winter's day any time!
Have you ever noticed how pale a blue sky is in winter? In summer it's a rich, dark, deep blue, today it's more like white with just a hint of blue - no clouds, a pale, pale sky.
All the leaves are off the Big Tree now and not many left on my Wisteria.
Fingers crossed that it flowers again next year!
