0710/17th February 2022 Yesterday afternoon Grant took me to an eye appointment, re-scheduled due to a recent ice storm. Rain which had been forecast was just arriving, but fortunately not in the predicted torrents. Our lane that takes us to the main road was a muddy mess and on either side, the fields had turned … Continue reading Nuts?
0657/3rd February, 2022 What a treat to rush outdoors at dawn and not have my fingers immediately turn to ice, even though I had not stopped to don my polar gear. There was a much more cheerful song coming from the bushes where the DD birds were waking to such a balmy morning. Of late … Continue reading Not yet Spring
Domestic Snow Leopard A slightly balmier temperature this morning encouraged the walkers to make a short sortie: Grant was off on a shopping expedition that held no interest for me so I declined the offer of escort duties. After all I had an outing yesterday and I wouldn't want to overdo things! There was no … Continue reading Surprise?
20th March 2021 The Polar Cap is not melting, I've decided, it's just shifted to Cambridge and is currently situated above the flower bed I was hoping would produce Spring flowers. That is not going to happen anytime soon, obviously, as one cannot even chip away the ice. I don't think I've ever seen anything … Continue reading Illusions

My answer to Grant was "no", to Lucy "yes, alright, alright", as I continued taking pictures. No, I haven't mastered … Continue reading And the melt goes on…
0745/11th February 2021 Time seems to be getting away from me at the moment. These pictures were of the last snowfall which didn't amount to much but I was captivated by the way the rising sun lit up the tiny flakes. Those really are snowflakes, not dirt on the lens! It was quite glorious that … Continue reading February
My prayer flags 30th January 2021 The leaning tower of Cambridge. I wasn't going to post this picture because the angle is off. It isn't really leaning that much, but I'm becoming obsessed. I see a man with a big mouth and a pointy nose, wearing a cap. I was going to name him... ...but … Continue reading Sparklers
Dawn, 30th December Dark clouds moved in early, yesterday. Dissipating the loveliness of dawn and bringing sleet and freezing rain late last night. . It was as if that cloud swallowed up the sun. Leaving us with a grey old day. Not such a pretty picture for New Year's Eve. A bump of snow remains … Continue reading Bye bye 2020
