Winter is well and truly here The mornings are icy and the sun shines as brightly as it can. Still not enough to warm the house most days but welcome all the same. I popped out yesterday and took some photos in the garden, the frost puts on a show now that it has appeared consecutively for a few days.
these are stunning 'frosted' or not
this is the table outside
Ice forming patterns on emerging bulb foliage.
A thick blanket on this leaf
The beautiful clear morning sky
here and there a jonquil is opening up and enjoying the sunshine
A small rhododendron I wonder what colour it will reveal, I don't recollect it flowering last year
A teeny tiny rose hip providing a spot of colour
Its the last week of School before holidays here but I have had my boy home all week with a terrible flu. My girl was home Monday and again today, I'm about to just throw my hands in the air and give up any hope for one day to get things in order before holidays descend upon us.
I guess its just the luck of the draw in winter with kids, sickness seems inevitable and never comes at a convenient time, so we might as well just snuggle in with blankets and cuddles and enjoy each others company as much as we can. :)
