Pants! But a what a lovely day anyway.
Today I was supposed to be on a lambing course in the Blackdown Hills run by The Woolly Shepherd. I didn't get to go in the end. Pants. That's what, Pants!
Well, I had a lovely day anyway. Above is the latest on the snowdrops in the woods! Lovely!
Everything is still so frosty and up on this hill the air has been frozen now for weeks. I can't get to soak any willow for basketmaking because we have 3 inches of ice on our pond. I'm going to have to think about something else... maybe the wheely bin???
The woods are still glorious. Pockets of crystallised trees everywhere.
There is a lot of box in our woods. It looks amazing with the frost on it.
This is a larch. It was like walking through a tiny frozen waterfall. Into this frozen tunnel of butchers brrom, box, beech saplings and dogwood!
In the woods there is a cut through which shows the cotswold stone. There are fossils in it and it's covered in male fern and hearts tongue fern, framed by frozen box. Just beautiful!
It's a beautiful world we live in!
