frosted leaves decorating....




the hedge outside makes me realise it is cold and a woolly scarf will be needed for my morning walk. Before I go I thought you might like a bit of festive colour. Its that time of year and a bubbly excitment lies beneath the surface, as Christmas looms on the horizon. It brings a cheer to see the bright sparkly lights  beginning to shine and the idea of bringing the outside in with holly , ivy and the lovely smell of pine. The darkening evenings mean I hear the owls hooting in the woods and try as hard as I can to find them, to glimpse a magical moment , they allude me! The post is crucial to this festive season bringing missives from families spread around the globe, so duck post is sharing your news today. Delivering her post to animals in the depth of woodland, tucking themselves up ready for the cold, nuts stored,  scarves and stoles tightly wrapped they hunker down in their burrow.....
