Clear and cold

When it’s icy the ground is firm and the grass crunchy.  The sheep don’t seem to mind the frozen grass, nor the frozen apples that remain on the ground. It’s quiet on the farm today; the animals peacefully potter about their business with hardly a sound.

Icy crisp days make the air so clear. The reflections down at the pools are beautiful: – the  delicate lace of tree branches only seen in Winter are perfectly mirrored in the cold water.

Jay likes a little ice with her water – it must taste very good as she picks the iciest puddle to taste 🙂

There’s something special about walking in the cold air surrounded by the peaceful animals and the sleeping trees. It’s a perfect activity for this time of year,  but now as the light falls I’m going to take off the wellies and enjoy a cup of steaming tea.
