Beautifully Chilly

My usual walk with the dogs lately has just been so beautiful….chilly at an average of -3, but beautiful.  The bright, freezing mornings that fill my lungs with crisp air have also cast long shadows, which make me smile, as I make the short journey over to the fields with Alf and Jess.

The field down in the hollow, with all it’s grass and mud  iced like the top of a frosted chocolate cake

As I climb out of the hollow and up the hill the sun shines in a blue, blue sky, but it can not chase away the bitter cold

  1. Beautiful photography Dotty. I’m shivering because of your temperature though. Are you hooking something warm right now? I’m finishing a blanket for my third great-grandson, born 8 days ago. Not a bit proud of him though. Can you tell?

  2. Lovely photos 😉 I love your description of the muddy field as ‘a frosted chocolate cake.’ You see what is beautiful, and I appreciate that in your descriptions here 😉 Best wishes, WG
