Sunday 29th December 2013
It was actually cold enough to have a slight frost again. This year has been so odd: I can’t remember the last time it was as warm and frost free as this December has been. So a frost is quite a novelty.
I spent the morning baking bread and catching up on bits and pieces, and then took the dogs to Canford Heath in the afternoon. When we got there it looked a little bit stripey.
Even though it was the afternoon and the sun was out there was still lots of ice around on puddles in the shaded areas, and this pond was frozen.
There is still water down paths after all the rain, as you can see here where Jez is walking up the hill.
And, of course, there is lots of standing water for Max.
As we walked the sun started to set. This is the view across Poole towards the Purbecks.
It meant that when we got to his favourite gully, Max was lit by the glow of the setting sun.
And finally one of the sun setting behind the trees.
