Winter so far

We have had a very nice start to winter with the first few days frosty followed by blue sky.



I took the dogs for a walk to the top of the hill to look down on the valley and what was left of the mornings frost.  The sheep are in a nice sunny paddock and have thawed out fast.  the paddock along the bottom of the hill is still in the shade of the Poplar trees and is white and crunchy underfoot.



The dogs love the highest spot to view the world below them.  With the sun low in the sky now it's winter, I managed to get a nice Holly shadow before she was off to explore again.

  1. What a lovely view! Dogs do like to keep an eye on things. Our dog always sat at the corner of the garage and looked out over the road and the fields.

  7. It's hard to imagine you are having winter when I'm here contemplating whether or not to turn on the air conditioner today. Beautiful shots of the valley. You have 2 gorgeous pups, too!
