For all our readers in warmer countries, this is what you are missing here in Wye at the moment.
Winter is indeed upon us. This was the scene early this morning up in the Wye countryside. Hedgerows sparkled with frost and the rising sun could just be seen behind the thick white rolling mist. Back in the village people scraped the ice from their car window screens before setting off on foggy journeys to work.
It seems only yesterday we were walking on bone dry footpaths admiring the poppies and chicory flower in this same spot, feeling the warmth of the sun on our backs.
Meanwhile nature lays dormant waiting for it’s revival. It won’t really be long before we turn the corner to find spring waiting to greet us with all it’s natural wonders.
