Silver Birch shows its Winter Colours…

Silver-Birch-in-Snow

Snow lingers thanks to an extremely cold night, but no new showers.  The Silver Birch, now free of its last leaves, is now proudly able to show its true winter colours.

 Not a bad winters day….. though hazy clouds are staring to encroach on the blue.

Dusk…on a Winters Day

After yesterdays snows the story today was of ice, treacherous roads and temperatures climbing to 2c. For the greater part of the day it continued to be overcast but late afternoon we enjoyed a clearing sky and a winter sunset.

The big downside of course is that the clear skies will see temperatures drop like a stone.. in fact -12c is predicted.
