Or maybe we should call it “sprinter”?
Anyway, most of the winter has been quite mild, with a few cold spells in between. Lately we have had some nice weather with clear skies, frost, and some gorgeous evening skies.
Last week I took a look in our garden, and was very surprised when I saw these popping up everywhere:
When driving to visit family this week, we also came across lots of these beside the road:
On returning home in late afternoon, we had time to stop and take some photos as the sun was setting.
A bit later we came across this frozen lake:
I went out of the car for a better view. It was our last evening of this spell of cold, nice weather. No wind, and all was quiet….
… except for a faint sound of a single pair of steel blades on ice, the occasional booming sound of the ice settling into the colder evening temperatures, and also peals of laughter ringing across the lake from the far shore where a group of people had fun on the ice.
Now it is raining again, and the ice is probably gone.
