seen when walking

this week when out walking I saw freshly fallen snow, decorated with animal tracks, and footprints.


 a farmer bringing his sheep down the lane, herding them on an off road bike, with the sheep dog balanced precariously on the back, his long tongue hanging out and his ears blown upright by the speed of the bike!


I saw fir trees delicately laced with snowflakes


and a lone set of tyre tracks where someone has bravely driven through the ford,



best of all I saw a huge holly bush, it's leaves tipped with snowy crystals and glinting in the winter sunshine.

  4. How pretty - I feel like a good walk - better than being trapped in with the germ-ridden!

  7. Snow, I am so excited for you and what lovely pictures. I am crossing my fingers for a little snow fall here in the next few days so I can snuggle up with a mince pie, or three and some mulled wine. - Annie

  9. How exciting, nothing like a bit of snow to get you in the festive mood. Did you feast on hot choc and cake when you got back home?

  10. Well, I'm jealous :) Seriously--it's unseasonably warm here, and all I want is to wear boots and sweaters and see everything covered in white.

  11. Your pictures are just lovely. I always find pictures with snow a bit unreal as I've never seen it before. It's looks beautiful but I truly can't imagine being in it. Hopefully that will change one day and I'll eventually get a white Christmas. I just need to work on hubby!

  16. Just mooching around and came across your lovely walk, I love fresh fallen snow but dread the dirt and slush that seems to follow! Have some great walks with the dog up here in the Dales though. Nice to have met you. Ash

  17. LOVELY images, Tess...looks like a Christmas card! We had snow here off & on all week. We just discovered mistletoe growing in one of our old, old apple trees. :o) Happy Holly-Days ((HUGS))
