Kite Flying

Thought I'd share this image of a Red Kite I took this weekend. I counted 5 circling overhead today, until that is I went inside to get my camera. Somehow via means of a sixth sense they just knew to make themselves scarce!

Lovely isn't it?

Watch Out!

Keep an eye out for someone sporting a bag like this. They can only be trouble.

You have been warned LOL.

A Bit Chilly

OK so it's finally getting officially cold here now. We've had something of a mild winter to date here in the south of England but this morning was quite a shock to the system: At around 8 this morning my weather station in the garden was proudly telling me it was -8 degrees Celsius (that's about 18 degrees F). Brrrrr!

And you know what? Around 4pm it started to gently snow and hasn't stopped since (it's a mere zero degrees at present). Here's a couple of images, taken this evening.

View into the street.

Garden seats and table, complete with carrots (no, really) growing in a container.

Tomorrow we get to go play in the snow with LL. I suspect however GFDU will be wearing even more layers of clothes. We've got to four already LOL.
