The Warm Spell


After the snow and the cold snap, we have cycled into a warm spell. Looking at that picture, would you believe I live in a desert? It’s not only warm here, it’s also wet. Everything is sodden and dripping, but I like it. We need to stockpile as much moisture as we can at times like this against the threat of drought later in the year.

We’ve got snow on the apples and frost on the yew.

We get plenty of valley fog, which might go away by sundown.

And then there’s more winter magic.

Sometimes strange apparitions arise out of the fog.
