Winter is a-comin’

Hoar frost in the morning

After yesterday’s torrential downpours the temperature dropped quickly and we woke up this morning to a sure sign that winter is a-comin’ – hoar frost coating everything. Those sharp little shards outlined every twig, weed and even the leaves on the ground.


As the days grow markedly shorter and colder, even the dog is content to remain indoors most of the time once he’s had his daily 5k walk and a good 10-minute flat-out run to stretch his very, very long legs.

Harley likes his creature comforts.

But it’s also the season of cheerful decorations – pretty bows, colourful and sparkly balls on the Christmas tree with happy striped candy canes dangling from branches.



So, even the signs of the end of autumn and the beginning of winter, decaying leaves ready to fertilize the ground for next spring, sparkle in the sunlight when rimmed with frost – a not-so-gentle sign of things yet to come.
