A really cold start

I'm very glad that the greenhouse plants were covered up last night. The Big Pond and the Top Pond were well frozen this morning, although Daisy seemed to take the frosty lawn as an invitation to play - and why not?  It is a beautiful morning and as soon as I've done some stuff in the house I need to get outside and play in the garden myself :)

















It might be bitterly cold but it is far too gorgeous to stay inside. Daisy has already had a short walk and she'll probably get more exercise chasing after the rugby ball than if we went for our usual 3 mile stroll.

  1. You are certainly colder than us. No frost here at all. Just back from a Moss-play walk. We have two types, a proper walk where we set off with no playing. The entertainment is found en route or a play-walk, where we take a ball or frizbee and head up to the village fields and throw until Moss is utterly spent then we come back for a rest☺

    1. It's OK, I completely understand the different types of walk :) We have 'toilet walks' (sorry if that is TMD!), exercise walks, interesting/loads of things to stop and sniff walks, and probably an unclassified selection as well.

      PS: how did you manage to get a smiley face to display properly on a blog comment?

  2. It's very cold but such a beautiful day and, as you say, far too nice to stay inside. We've already been out for a lovely walk while the sun was shining. I'm going to get some sock knitting done now. X

    1. You would think so Sue, but she has always been quite happy on frost or snow. Now, ask her to walk through a puddle when she's not in the mood to get her feet wet and that's a whole diffierent situation!

  4. OK, that is a serious cold morning I would say, & here I'm thinking it is still cold for November in Oz. Still having low single digit figures over night, but I'll stop complaining now after seeing that. We usually get a lovely sunny day after a frost, so hopefully it was there too. Have a great weekend & take care.

    1. This is nothing Susan, other parts of the area have had 3 or 4 inches of snow! It was lovely and sunny until about 2.00pm and I had a good day outside. Take care. Xx

    1. Thanks Terra, fortunately cold like that doesn't tend to last very long.

    1. Well spotted :) I should make more effort to capture reflections in the ponds . . .

  7. We've had one or two frosts here in Sussex but it's been more wet than anything. When the sun has broken through it's been glorious.

  8. Gloriously frosty Jayne ,,, lovely photos. Hardly had any frost here yet just chilling Easterlies and quite a few rainy days. Autumns used to be dry ,,, I would be out all the time collecting kindling for the fire right up to Christmas. This year and last year it's just too wet. Luckily I remembered how wet last Autumn was and collected loads when it was dry in the Spring.
