So far we’ve escaped the Eastie Beastie*, we’ve had a dusting of snow and the hills are spectacular, but it is certainly very cold and windy. And Storm Emma may yet give us a a pasting. The tidal pond was frozen earlier
and the birds have been glad of the seeds and fat balls in their feeders, and seem to add variety to their diet with titbits from the compost bin.
It’s St David’s day today and we don’t quite have daffodils but they are trying their best.
And the primroses have made a brave show.
We had a great walk today over on the mainland, up past the standing stones to the trig point. It was a bit, shall we say brisk? to take photos at the top but here are some taken from the garden later.
Hope you’re safe and warm wherever you may be.
*a variation on “Beast from the East”, and something I was called when I explained I’d moved here from Edinburgh.
