White Christmas

We had our white Christmas again this year.  So it can go, now.  The days are getting longer but I expect we haven’t seen the last of it.  Last winter, we only had our driveway ploughed six times, but we’ve already had it done three times before the year really started.

Still, the redpolls are safer from the stray cat that’s been wandering around. It is black so very easy to spot against the snow.

We had a beautiful hoar frost a few days ago, with a fairly heavy mist.  It was too misty for the longer-range pictures but this closer look at pine needles worked OK.
