December was rather a dreary and damp month. We have been extremely lucky here and have not experienced the terrible floods that have been happening in some parts of the UK. It's been sunny this weekend for the first time in what feels like ages and even though it was cold, it felt so good to be outside in the sunshine. It just lifts the spirits and makes you think of longer, warmer days to come.
Mr JK and I took advantage of the sun to visit a woodland and water garden near to us. Despite the recent rainfall, the paths were all walkable and we enjoyed views over Ranworth Broad. We stopped off at one of the bird hides and were endlessly entertained by a family of water rats. It made me think of Wind in the Willows and dear old Ratty!
We had a hard frost overnight and the garden felt lovely and crisp this morning. Florence wasn't too keen on walking across the lawn, I think it was a bit chilly for her paws!
Flo was not impressed that her favourite seating area was covered in frost!!
She did help me take a photo of a finished knit though - a pair of Roger socks for a dear friend. Flo couldn't resist putting her paw into the frame!!
And just look what I spotted in the borders - bulbs shooting! I do hope that Spring is on its way and we have missed out on snow this year! Roll on warmer, longer days - I cannot wait to be able to sit outside again. xxx
