After the period running up to Christmas being cloud and mizzle, Christmas and now the start of 2015 has been cold - with 'air frosts' bringing beautifully bright landscapes. So, over the year we have seen a 40C of temperature variation here, with a whole range of colour changes and visual interest in the garden and the land beyond.:
This year we will try to keep regular posts going on this Category of the blog, so that we have a seasonal record of interest for the garden and wildlife - particularly as we'll be doing some fairly major structural design work in the garden and also hope to set up the night camera and audio technology to track the wildlife. But, for the meantime, here are a few more early morning scenes from New Year's Day 2015:
Simon lives at Nichoir, Le Bruel, with his wife Noella. They moved here in May 2013, with their Newfoundland dog, Oska, and their cat, Snufkin. Together they have set out on an adventure to create what they hope will be home from home for family and a rather special Chambres D'Hotes for guests.
