It's been a cold, wet, rather bleak day today, but that doesn't stop Tilly remaining on squirrel alert. She has a good vantage point from her armchair, by the garden door. Nothing escapes her attention!
Yesterday, the weather was a very different kettle of fish! It was bright and sunny, the sun silvered the fine grasses, dainty and shimmering, as the wind blew through the wood, along the field's edge.
On the other side of the field, the immaculately constructed wasps nest, in the elderberry bush, which I photographed earlier in the year, is now vacated and in a state of collapse.
And here's the best bit! Young hazel catkins are already here, biding their time until the New Year when they will flower. I love the way plants are always looking ahead - such positive thinkers!
