2016: the year of spaciousness

Because there's more to life than work

Bbbrrrrr!!!

Wow, winter’s really getting into its stride this week. I could feel the temperature difference even before I got out of bed this morning. The frost didn’t melt all day in the shade, which meant I didn’t have to run round in my dressing gown this time to get pics.

IMG_2275Frost is destructive, but its thousands of miniscule crystals make you look at the commonplace as if you’ve never seen it before. I love how the macro setting on the camera can pick up the tiniest of details, like the way the frost has gathered on each of the hairs on this geranium leaf.

Above it all, the bluest of skies – but the sun is so low in the sky now it hardly touches the garden at all.
