Frosty New Years Day Walk



We have had the most glorious day! A long walk in the Cotswolds, all magical and white. The wind stayed calm until the very end of our walk so we were comfortable most of the day.


I love these little birds, it's a bunting of a sort. If you get a chance you should check out Bernie's photos of birds , just jaw droppingly breathtaking!


We walked to Uley Bury, a 2, 500 year old ironage hill fort. Stunning views and a very good walk.


Hawthorns never cease to amaze me.





It wouldn't have mattered if the wind was up and biting today, I still would have to be forced to leave this spot.



Looking up is one of my favourite things.



When we got home I made Willow some warm beef dinner, which she scoffed and then slept off in her ridiculously over the top bed we made for her. Mind you she can have whatever she likes from now on, as I accidentally hurt her today. I chucked a hefty stick for her and it caught in branches and fell straight down on her snout. Poor little bean tried to rub it with her paw with her eyes squinting and it's come up in an egg shaped lump. Doom!



Hope you all had a lovely day!

  1. It looks like it was a very beautiful walk in some very beautiful country scenery. Frost has such a powerful presence to it. It can take one deeply into this moment.

  2. Wow, what a beautiful day to take a walk. Isn't that frost amazing? I love it when it frosts like that and then the sun comes out and shines through all those little ice crystals! Aww, I bet willow will have a full recovery after a little pampering.

  9. Lovely photos Hen - it does look magical. Your mention of Uley Bury takes me back - I remember scribbling an essay about it when I was doing A-level Archaeology - oh that was such a long time ago! Anyhow, hope Willow is feeling better. She looks very cosy in her bed!
