Winter 2012

Yesterday in Annandale was clear and cold, and I was somewhat surprised to wake up this morning to this wintry scene!

Garden visitors. Blackbird tracks perhaps?

The ice on the pond is pretty solid. Which of course raises the question if we are going to get some curling outside this winter. Note to self - get the stones out from under the bed and into the car boot to cool down!

Keeping the birds well fed makes a considerable dent in the pension, but they do bring a lot of pleasure. Blue tits and coal tits are the most common visitors, the latter being especially common this year.
