Dreary

Once again, we are confined to barracks this morning due to the appalling weather and with worse forecast in the form of wind, rain, sleet and snow over the next few days, things don't look like getting any better.  So a couple more pictures I managed to take yesterday on our walk round Straw's Bridge.
The Blackthorn bushes around the lake are beginning got show a few flowers - something they may regret if the frost kills them off during the coming week.  These little beauties were struggling bravely in the mist and murk of yesterday.
Small water droplets had formed on the delicate petals and were trying to sparkle in the gloom - without much success.
All we can do is hope that the forecasters are about as reliable as usual and the wintry chill doesn't materialise.
