February has been a month of up and down temperatures, with lots of grey skies. Spring is on it's way though. You can feel it in the air. The buds are starting to swell and the tips of the tree branches are starting to just change a bit in colour, from dead brown to pinkish or goldish in colour, because the sap is starting to run. We've actually had a few temperatures which get just past freezing and the sun finally feels warm.
A February sunrise. It was around 7 am, maybe at bit earlier but not much. The dog doesn't normally like to go out in the morning while it's still dark! The sky was purple, pink and beautiful.
It was a cloudy, grey day. All of a sudden, the sun's rays broke through the cloud cover, reflecting off the barn and silos. The magic lasted only a few minutes unfortunately.
A visit to my friend's farm to check out the new addition. Pachino the Shetland ram is checking out the camera. What a sweet face! His coat is dense and crimpy.... pretty boy!
Chicken and Leek soup, cooked over the fire. There are sausages in the smaller pot and peppered apples just peeking at the bottom of the photo. This was a winter Saxon/Viking demo and that was our lunch! The rest of the photos are on a friend's camera, so I'll have to wait until I get copies of them to use them. It was fun but cold.
