More Snow

Snow has fallen, snow on snow.......... sing up, you all know the rest.
After another covering of snow last night, adding about an inch to what already lay, it was still snowing this morning as I made our first coffee of the day. We needed to go into town this morning, so no country walks for us today. Before leaving, we called Malcolm's mum to see what she needed bringing from Tesco, then set out, trudging through the 'deep and crisp and even'.
Yesterday, we were privileged to see a Bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula) in a tree. What a beautiful bird, very shy and so difficult to get close enough to photograph.
The sun was shining through the trees and illuminated small sections of the hedgerows as we walked. They shone wonderfully in the snowy gloom.
The reflected light from the branches was highlighted by the frost and snow which clung determinedly to them, sparkling in the sun like glitter.
