It’s the First day of winter today…and the days will start to get lighter now.

But it hasn’t really been cold yet – and we haven’t had any snow either.

But these trees are ready for the winter – the leaves has all blown off them, and the sheep have their winter coats on (it is amazing how hardy they are).

I love winter almost as much as autumn. There is something very special about wrapping up warm and going for a walk through winter woods – preferably with a dog (although I haven’t had a dog to accompany me now for many years), and then home to a nice warm house and tea.
