Can you believe the lovely gifts I have received for my birthday today? My family home with me yesterday - and now, today, just look how Mother Nature has gift-wrapped my garden. This was taken at 3.45 on the shortest day during an afternoon of unexpectedly heavy snowfall (with the most enormous snowflakes I have ever seen!) The birch tree looks as if it had been especially frosted just for me!
Another long gap from me posting here, and belated thanks to all of you who have left messages since my last message. I will write to you all during the holiday period - but for now I just wish you a Peaceful Christmas and a very Happy New Year.
