This frosted web across the window of our garden shed must have been made by a novice - they haven't quite got the knack have they?
This one is far better - definitely the work of an improver.
A bit of 'free' art here and quite festive looking. It looks as though it is time my husband made another bird house. Two hard winters in a row and a hot summer in between are taking their toll.
The oak tree beside the house appears to still have all it's leaves - very odd when all the others have shed theirs.
Even brambles look lovely with a coating of hoarfrost,
and our neighbours birch tree looks beautiful.
Looking up the footpath beside our house.
This is the tree with all the pigeons on it the other day.
Looking over the front wall and across the little stream to the other side.
I love this tangle of twisted hazel twigs and hope I get a few more catkins next year.
After all those chilly photos I thought I should leave you with something cosier. The rug is finished at last, apart from being properly backed. I hastily tucked all the excess hessian under just to take this photo and that untidy bottom right corner will be finished neatly. It's amazing how the colours, so carefully selected to go perfectly with each other, have reacted within their placement in the rug. I have spent quite a lot of time pulling bits out to rework them in another colour. Even now it doesn't look quite as I had anticipated, but on the whole I am pleased with it.
I hope the very low temperatures with snow and ice in so many areas are not making life too difficult for you. Keep warm and safe and well.
