Well we were doing well down here after a chilly November and then a nice mild spell, the heating oil was doing well,
then bomph!

Me acer’s gone all white

L’arc blanc

A winters wonderland (with cable), GNuts was ok, snug in her box

Even the goats have gone in

Over by the veg pacth, a grey sky lingers

Can’t almost see the chicks

The polycave all tucked up

Sheltered seedings area

veg patch

Pond (gooseys ok btw)

veg patch the other way

Lest have a drive now the roads clear

Will it stay or will it go?

Its as if you have a black and white film in your camera!
Lovely pictures ~ especially the trees and the stream.

Looks lovely like that, as long as it doesnt outstay its welcome.

Beautiful pictures. The trees look amazing don't they in their winter finery.

Your veg patch looking exceedingly tidy Stevie, they are beautiful scenes and would be perfect if only the roads could all stay as clear as that one..

20 Jan, 2013

 

Are you riding on the left, Steve? Why, for God´s sake?

20 Jan, 2013

 

Lovely pic's....particularly the one with trees either side of the road.Stunning!

20 Jan, 2013

 

Prettier than here....would rather it go away now...no one can get up our drive!

20 Jan, 2013

 

nice !!

Kat, lol, we drive on the left here!!,
Could have gotten some better pics Paul but didn't want to stop

Katarina and I had a discussion the other day about driving on the left!

Do you know why we drive on the left but most of the rest of the world drives on the right?

20 Jan, 2013

 

ah i know this, Jousting knights

20 Jan, 2013

 

Very impressed!

and also where salutes come from as you had to lift your helmet visor to show you were friendly

I will admit though its difficult to keep the lance level out the fiesta window and salute at the same time

20 Jan, 2013

 

That's where the Enfield comes into its own!!!

20 Jan, 2013

 

Stunning!

Some other countries do drive on the left. Gibralter ?
Australia ?
I thought I would be scared cycling on the right in France, but soon got used to it. Got off and walked round all the big junctions, as couldnt adapt my brain to how approaching traffic would give way to others on the right, and the warning signs were in French. Ha ha.

Stevie? were you driving and taking pictures? hope you were doing no more than 5 mph, lol.
I got used to driving on the left side fairly quickly (coming from the right hand road driving country) but have to admit the roundabouts were causing bit of confusion for bit longer. Now it would be opposite - going to visit my country ;-)
P.S. lovely pictures - have to go out and take some:)

A mate drove the wrong way round a roundabout in Paris...once!!

21 Jan, 2013

 

Reminds me of that film national lampoons on vacation ~ dont they have a problem driving round Paris?

21 Jan, 2013

 

I braved our lane and drive this morning, very slowly. Got to Malmesbury to find they didn't have my favourite aloe juice in stock!! Still, managed to buy a few mats for the slippery kitchen floor!

21 Jan, 2013

 

well done you ~ you were brave ~ i went out walking ~ dont fancy driving in snow but in fact the main roads seem fine.

21 Jan, 2013

 

Made me chuckle. The folk clearing a path on their bit of pavement...chucking the ice back onto the road!

21 Jan, 2013

 

the woman opposite me drives me nuts ~ they never go out but the slightest sprinkling of snow and she has to clear her drive completely ~ stacking it all up by the road where it will cause nothing but trouble!

21 Jan, 2013

 

That last photo is gorgeous......it looks just like winter wonderland. Suprised to see the road so clear too.

30 Jan, 2013

 

Kasy, always have my camera taped to my head ; )
Lulu, necessary journeys ONLY (aloe juice!!)
Sticki, 'they never go out' lol
GM, they learnt there lesson when they didnt grit the roads last winter with floods of complaints

30 Jan, 2013

 

only to clear the drive i think!

30 Jan, 2013

 

and fags:(

30 Jan, 2013

 

not even fags!

30 Jan, 2013

 

flicking a bit of ash might help but it wont melt the whole drive ; )

31 Jan, 2013

 

they dont smoke!! nor do i! otherwise a good plan!

31 Jan, 2013

 

Some more really nice pics. Ours has all gone now, but we are left with lots and lots of .....mud. Yeuch. Jx

31 Jan, 2013
