Still in the shadowland

Our allotment is still almost entirely in the shade, due to the low angle of the sun. But in a few weeks it will start to get more direct sunlight. It will be great. Today the temperature was about -15°C and the trees were beautifully draped with hoar frost. The branches looked like they were full of diamonds.

We spent a few hours there today - filled up the bird feeders, shovelled snow, chopped some wood, got some crocheting done, and had morning coffee and lunch.

Lots of birds at the bird feeders: the usual nuthatches, great tits and blue tits. But we also saw an overwintering robin, a blackbird and a jay.
