Wintry Wednesday

Hello Lovelies,
 the weather forecast was correct and today we have had some more's still falling as I type , though it's not predicted to hang around for long. 
Just thought I would share a few pictures taken on the way home today. 
It's bitterly cold and I think these pictures show that ! 
The farmer had been out delivering extra food for the sheep and they looked happy about that..........

Though these guys didn't seem hungry......

 I loved the seed heads on the Ivy.........

 And when I had finished getting a good close up shot I was amused to see the sheep had gathered close by to investigate. Can you see the snow on their fleeces?
They must be very glad of their warm wool coat at the moment...........

Further along the road the falling snow made the distance disappear in a haze..........

 It's all a bit grey so a bit of colourful farm machinery really stands out........

The snow was settling on the road a bit as we neared home...........

It's bleak but still beautiful...........

 It was nice to get back to our cozy home and take a picture of my latest crochet creation. I've been busy developing a solid version of my popular Sunburst granny heart........I'm really pleased with how it's turned out, hope you like it .
Tutorial to follow soon :0)

  6. i really love the wintery views you have captured today~ can you believe here in the west country there are lots of lambs leaping about the fields...maybe because its slightly warmer or because we've had no snow, but does seem early doesnt it. x

  26. The sunburst granny heart is glorious. If we can't have real sun, then lets have some crochet sun! We had lots of snow yesterday but it's all gone now. I very nearly got stuck in the car on a hill yesterday - scary.
