Winter Wonderland

Monday, November 29th 2010

As you might expect Foxglove looks like a winter wonderland!  This morning the sky was blue and the low sun was making long shadows across the snow. 

Hide and lake in the snow

The lake is frozen over, except for the little piece where the spring comes in.

Snowy lake and trees

The snow was so fresh it was squeeky underfoot so there was no chance of creeping up on the birds.  They were flitting through the trees and taking advantage of our filled bird feeders to stock up on food.

The only colour came from the Holly berries,-

- and the Hawthorn berries.

Up on the moor there was a moody dramatic sky.

Our access road is very snowy at you might expect.  Take care if you are intending to visit.  It may be better to park on the parade square and walk in from there.

If you do make it here we now have our Christmas cards for sale and our 2011 Foxglove calendar.  Get them quick, before they sell out!
