A frosty leaf on a stripy stone
Gosh, 16th December already. Jim and I are heading off to Galway for a spot of shopping in a little while. Jim's taken Buster for a walk to the lake so that he won't mind too much being indoors for the rest of the day.
We have moved into our spare bedroom. Hoorah! It's wonderful and cosy in there - and warm. The bathroom is next to us too, which is great. I have all the Christmas decorations done and yesterday Jim finished the last bit of tiling around the bathroom door, which he couldn't do until the carpenters had done their bit. It just needs grouting now. Phew, another room finished.
I took some photos a couple of mornings ago of the frosty garden and have only just sorted them out! I'll post some of them anyway, I'm quite pleased with them.
Frosty campanula leaves.
Weird wood on the wall
Leaves dusted with frost
Martin's frosty field and Lough Graney looking so cold.
Alchemilla Mollis looking beautiful as ever.
Red dog wood in front of the shed.
Striking contrasting colours.
Buster on the frosty grass.
Can you see the pink of the lupin in the bed on the right? Crazy flower!
Weird tree roots.
Metal on a frosty rock.
BlackJack all fluffed up on the window sill.
Brrrr, it makes me feel cold to look at. I took one or two photos of the decorations too:
It's grown some more decorations now, and some 'icicles' too.
The kitchen diner. Sharp eyed among you might spot Mildred's card! And my alphabet ATC.
Across the top of the old fireplace.
The fireplace in the snug. Not a very good photo!
And just to finish with, 2 happy cats:
Jim's back from his walk, so I'm off for now.
