Baby, It's Cold Outside

It's been very cold here for the last three days, Thursday night was -4, Friday -7 and last night -10. During the day it has not gone above freezing, giving us frost on frost; the upside of which has been beautiful scenery. This morning we took a longer than usual walk and Mrs.H. (being the camera buff that she is) got some great photos, including this one along the lane . This afternoon digging the parsnips out the ground was a challenge. . .still, they are certainly well frosted, which always makes them taste so much better.

Several people have asked about the owls. Well they've long gone from the nest box and apart from hearing screeching in the night from all around we have not seen any of the Barn owls, not that we would recognise them anyway! We're going to add some design modifications to the ledge so they don't fall off the nest so easily next year.

Wonderful shots Richard. Frost does add something wondeful to a winter landscape, freezing cold as it is!

I am not sure how cold it was at night but yesterday it stuck at -1 all day.

Mrs H certainly has an eye for a good picture :-)
