Winter has come.
Tapping at our window panes with frosted branch like fingers. Laughing her freezing north wind breath. Was she impatient to shake out her snowy cloak and air it of last years remains which Spring prevented her from emptying? Or does she have a new cloak to show off with?
We have only had sprinklings of snow here, but the wind has the bite of an ice dragon and the ground is as hard as stone.
Willow is not that bothered, she just wants to sleep until Spring.
(In case you are wondering, I did put fresh water in for the birds after I took this photograph of the bird bath this morning.)
Now, because it is the first day of December (officially winter in my eyes) and because I promised one not so long ago. .... it's time for a giveaway!
Among making other bits and pieces, I made a special mini hanger. Ideal I think to hang on a Christmas tree?
Good luck! :)
PS: I forgot to mention before. I have an original painting 'Wearing A Robe Of Gold' for sale in this open exhibition here. It's still on until mid December so there is time to pop along if you are in the area.
