This weekend has been really cold and we have woken to thick hoar frosts covering the valley. Here are some of the wonderful ice formations we have found around about us. The days have been bright and clear so it has been a beautiful time. There have also been the stirrings of new life with the waxing of the days. The birds seem to know something we don’t and are busy singing and flitting around. Bulbs are popping up everywhere. Little Owl and Big Dreamer have enjoyed skidding down icy slopes. Unfortunately I had a powerful reminder as to why running down hill with a full bladder is no longer permitted since having Little Owl. Possibly too much information!
