20 February: The frozen North

It's been chilly here for several days. The sun has melted the overnight frost in the places it reaches, but in the shade everything is frozen solid.

After yesterday's freezing fog the garden plants were encrusted -


And as I drove into Durham mid-morning the car told me that it was still -2 degrees C. The trees and hedges were simply breathtakingly beautiful. My little camera doesn't do it justice, but this was the view across the field from our front garden -

It looks very picturesque.

I wonder if they were missing 2 degrees at Durham University.

One degree under?
Three degrees?

Your North is more frozen than mine - and certainly more beautiful.

Sorry, folks, 3 spams on one posting are too many.

WV is back on, and if that doesn't work, comments will have to be moderated.

You have to be careful driving on those seductively beautiful frosty mornings!
I had an attack of those spammers on my second blog, but they seem to attack and then passon their way. CV should fix it, and no one minds doing it.
