One of my most favourite of all your photos. Driving to Venterdon from Kally Bray along the Launceston road, there is an abundance of hogweed stems and they look quite magical with the haw frost on them.

Thank you for this image, though. Just gorgeous.

Spot, your photos have been positively stunning lately! Well, maybe not the dead badger...but these frosty ones are fabulous.

You will be horrified to know that we have TWO CATS living at our house. How did we ever allow this to happen? They are not very pleasant pets, I'll tell you. Bah! Cats!

Cats? Lurchers hate cats! Chased a fox last night right across our paddock; thought it was a cat for a moment.

Very sad about the badger but roadkill is part of our local life unfortunately.
