If you click on the picture above to view it on Flickr and compare with the next shot in the collection, showing the same view in October, you will see all sorts of differences. We have a shed, the tool store has moved and, of course, autumn’s fire has been replaced by winter’s chill.
It is still magical though. A few minutes ago, I spotted tiny ice crystals sparkling in the air like a gentle shower of glitter: beautiful and entirely plastic free! I also got a close up look at a pair of goldfinches that landed on the extension roof, just outside the window. Nice to be inside, looking out!
