Frozen Christmas Rose
26 December 2009 20:24:56
Santa has been and gone and hopefully most Christmas wishes have been granted. The scene here on Christmas day was like a Christmas card but the downside was that all water to horses and livestock has been frozen since Christmas Eve it's still not working even though it started to thaw today. It was a quiet Christmas here with no kids in the house and only six for dinner which is always in the evening as horses and cattle have to be fed. The morning was sunny and I would have loved to have got photos from the top of the farm but by the time I managed to get out in the afternoon the sun had gone no fabulous sunset to capture but still the beauty of the frosted trees and winter views just make me realise how lucky I am to live in such an unspoilt part of the country. The birds have been crazy on the feeder on the arch with frantic comings and goings I will have to try and get it positioned in a situation that can be watched from the kitchen or sunroom. I have posted up photos in the Dec album, Christmas at Cloncaw and Birdwatch at Cloncaw.
The temperature is dropping again and it is freezing on top of the partially melted snow and compacted ice and listening to the weather we are going to have another cold spell.
Took this photo of a rose in the east bed it was just frozen solid and glistening with frost so beautiful.
