‘Twas cold out there this mornin’!

Look!

A beech leaf hanging on, refusing to drop to the floor!

Rodrigo’s Sweet Sister and Mr. Skylark!

I’m still chasing those birds in the bush! They’re still flying away as soon as my boot crunches the snow!

However, my previously mentioned stealth and cunning worked again today…..

"Rodrigo, Rodrigo!" called Rosanna hoping to find her brother.

The look on Rodrigo's face made it clear to Rosanna that he did NOT want to be found!

Poor Rosanna….

Rosanna knew the best thing to do when Rodrigo was like this was to close her beak and mind her own business!

But it wasn’t long before……

"Dum dum da da da da da bob bob bobbin' along!" sang Rosanna wishing she could remember all the words to the song!

Here’s Sidney Skylark whose demeanour looks as frosty as the weather!

"You'd be feeling frosty too if your beak had ice on like mine!" retorted Sidney!

“You’d be feeling frosty too if your beak had ice on like mine has!” retorted Sidney!

Frosty One!

Ooh am I glad that I have a warm stove that keeps my house toastie warm? We definitely needed it last night as it hit the below zeros!

So there I was this morning, lounging about, knowing I had to get up and going soon, when I thought, “I wonder what the weather looks like today!”

I peaked out of the window and saw frost frost frosty frost everywhere!

“I sense a photo opportunity!” thought I, and leapt out of bed and into clothes.

Here are my efforts….

Saxifraga Primuloides

And….

Brrrr!

Followed by…..

Will she survive?

Then I took a photo of the ice on the top of my fence…not sure if this works…what do you think?

Quite interesting I think!

Then here’s some frozen wood…

I much prefer colourful shots!

So….

Well you shouldn’t be growing in my lawn!

Then there’s the last of my sweet peas who seem to think it’s jolly hot judging by the amount of sweat on them!(?)

Freezing you may be…but very pretty too!

And that’s all!

See Ya xx
