…. but today, no snow. despite the rest of the country getting snow, despite schools being closed to the north of us (and not that far north either)… no snow here. nada. zip. zilch. nothing.

*throws a major strop and thinks about complaining to the met office and the BBC and metcheck cos they ALL promised snow, damnit!*

heh. not really. i’m quite glad there is no snow – and the frost has all gone. makes getting around much easier, and i have a lot to do today. I promised photos last night.. so photos there are… behind the cut as usual. I’ve not posted all of them here, as there are some similar ones, but you can find the full set here if you’re so inclined. 🙂 Enjoy!

this is part of the path where i walk Jess regularly... you can see how frosted everything is

if youre thinking this looks familiar, youre right. its the same photo as the one in the header, but here you can see all of it. Its also untouched, apart from resizing, whereas the one in the header has been touched up a little. (yes, i cheat. so what?)

i love the way the frost has caught the edges of this leaf, and the puddle of ice in the bottom. this was a serious contender for the header photo.

a couple of weeks ago some surveyors came to assess the land where i walk jess, the council is thinking of building a school there (not if i have anything to do with it they wont). theyve churned up all the grass in one spot, where catapillar tracks were left, left a right mess. water had puddled in the muddy areas - and that, of course, froze. quite beautiful, now, at least.

yes, you are seeing correctly. these are raspberries. Whats more, theyre on summer fruiting raspberry canes!!! I think it was the mildish autumn that fooled them. Hopefully it wont harm them. very strange though. Ive eaten a couple, theyre quite sharp, not at all juicy and sweet like the summer berries were. oh well.
