Glazed Dog Nuts
It was raining skating rinks here yesterday. The bare ground was first frosted, and then glazed, before finally ending up encased in a good inch of ice. Then it snowed. Then the wind picked up and many branches came down.

So I spent a lot of today cleaning up a rather beautiful mess. I'm pretty worn out and so I'm just going to post a few photos and hope they keep you entertained until I have something more to offer. They're from yesterday and today and include Lu in her safety coat, Lettie lurking behind a hay bale, Lu followed by Lettie on ice and a very soggy Lu. Plus an icy vista from yesterday and the frozen road. It's been extremely overcast so these photos are pretty accurate.
