Winter with stealth creeps up on us…..

We woke on Sunday morning to the first real frost of the winter.  Blue skies and sunshine created a rather good day to be out and about, all be it rather cold.

Even by late afternoon the frost still lingered in the shadows, though the evening sunshine did add a rich glow to the Silver Birch fronds atop the fine branches..

But as the sun went down the sky was still crystal clear…so I guess we are in for a really cold night…maybe winter is here.
