Winter time

It is getting colder. Several mornings this last week the ground has been white with frost. I love to see it even though it keeps me indoors. The delicate frost particles bring a shimmer to everything and glisten in the sun shine. Generally the skies are blue and clear when this happens. This morning though the sky has red streaks in it. Not a good sign I think, red sky in the morning, shepherds warning is the saying. It does look lovely though. Do you notice the sky in the mornings? Or the way the frost glistens?

Last weekend I visited the local Tree Festival. There were over 900 trees and it was a spectacular sight. I have decorated my Yule tree already and this year I have made my home look more festive. I have also started to look back at what I have managed to achieve this year. It has been a difficult year but I am looking forward to the coming months.  Despite the turmoil in the world today, my inner turmoil has decreased and I feel more at peace with myself and my surroundings.

My robin comes to visit every day now; the British robin is smaller than its namesake in the USA. Although the photo is not that good I hope you can see him at the bird feeder.
