first frosts
december in london this year has been quite warm. it’s only in the last couple of days that we have seen frost on the ground in the park next door, and had to don our big warm feather jackets.

    happy new year!

    i love the quote — we must risk delight………powerful…..insightful.

    so often people hold off from trying new things for fear of failure…they focus on the negatives. if you are to have the delight, you have to take the risk!

    be well.

    Coming from a city buried in snow, that sounds wonderful.
    Those are beautiful photos.

    Ah, warmth! It was 70 degrees here last Saturday :-0

    And now it’s back in the 20’s!

    Isn’t it amazing how magical frost can be? Especially when it lightly covers everything. And/or the sun gleams brightly on and off of it.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Here’s to much magic for you in the New Year!
