The freezing fog turned my washing to stiff boards on the line. The birds were having their usual feeding frenzy at the feeders. Robin sat with his feathers fluffed out like a little red breasted pompom. Slowly the fog began to lift and the sun shone over the fields for a brief moment. Just the opportunity I needed to test out the Christmas present from husband and daughter. A few clicks with my tiny, new, digital camera and the moment was captured.

A splash of colour in a drab winter garden.
As we came back from our Christmas Day walk, I spotted this little red anemone blooming in the front flower bed. I can't remember it flowering in winter last year but maybe thats global warming for you!
Little children often choose red as their favourite colour. Its warm, bright and cheery.
I love it too. Red holly berries, robin redbreast and now my little anemone, all bring a bit of cheer to a winter's day.
Happy New Year!

Another cold and frosty morning with sunshine slowly melting the ice from my drive.
I gingerly reversed out of the garage and drove carefully to our local supermarket.
Now I know it was cold but surely not that cold . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . these polar bears were relaxing on the grass verge as I turned into the car park!!

It was just a little pot plant but it caught my eye on my clever little sister's window sill.
I took a quick photo and so did she.
Mine remained in my camera for a few weeks.
My sister however, transferred it to fabric, added a touch of magic (free-machine embroidery)and the next time I visited this fab picture was hanging on her wall!!
Now , I guess its my turn to come up with a picture. Watch this space...
