Behold this year's Christmas decorations! I have had my eye on this tree for a few weeks, as the berries have ripened. So far so good. The birds haven't scoffed the lot ..... yet. The weather has been warm, but I fear that as soon as it gets colder, these berries may disappear. Anyway, I am keeping my fingers crossed, and hope that there will be enough berries for us all, as we lurch helplessly towards winter. I certainly wouldn't begrudge the birds their fill. Their need is greater than ours!
This is the view the holly tree has, across to the Lammermuirs.
The holly tree is the cone-shaped one, at the top of the field,
with these lovely grasses, blowing in the wind at the bottom of the field.The walking boots were fine, but Tilly's eight year old lead gave up the ghost - so she now has a brand new lead, and I have a new pair of boots. We are both, now, very well equipped for lots more adventures together!
