Well, blow me down with a feather, when we got there the sun was out, and Christmas had surely come early. . . . . . .
(this first picture is worth clicking on to get the bigger version, as it is quite weird how the ice has settled on only one side of the branches!)
They are not the best photos in the world as they were only taken on my phone - amazingly it didn't occur to me to take a camera for a walk on a day when I can't see the end of my garden!!!!! But I think they convey how totally stunning the scene was, and how my darling OH and I just had to keep stopping to look in awe at the majesty and beauty that is nature.
I think these photos lead well into me wishing each and every one of you a wonderful holiday, filled with Love, Laughter and Peace.
I'll be back after Christmas!
