16th January St Maur’s

S’il gèle à la Saint-Maur, – La moitié de l’hiver est dehors.

According to the old saying if there is frost on St Maur’s day than winter is half way over. Well yesterday dawned with the most incredible thick white frost and blue skies and as the sun melted the ice, it produced a ground mist worthy of any artist. Unfortunately …….the practicalities of life meant that whilst I marveled at the sight from the car I didn’t get a photo! Isn’t it always the way!

Today though had it’s moments, the frost was still hiding in some of the shady corners, and the sun still shone, the sky was still a beautiful blue.

Very happy to see the sun in all it’s glory, here’s hoping though that as predicted by the dictum, this load of wood is the last we’ll need this winter!
