It was one of those magical winter days that surprise, even though we had heard a snowy weather forecast.

So many pictures from the day that I an presenting them in two halves, morning and afternoon.

These are a few of the morning views.

We awoke to a wintery view . . . it was snowing hard till 10 am.

The Pod looked snug but the top of the valley was lost in the weather.

A splash of colour catches my eye as I walk out of the house.

The road outside . . . very little traffic so far.

A picture postcard or calendar shot in the making.

Gillerthwaite . . . still under renovation . . . but full marks, the builders are there on time this morning.

Harry and Dylan joined me on a walk to the field before breakfast.

There be reindeers . . .

Like a newspaper . . . black and white and red all over.
Rose Cottage and the Vicarage.

We walk around to the field now the snow has stopped.

Distant Whiteside and Grasmoor as the boys pose for a snowy photo.

A white snow-scape panorama of the valley from the top of the field.

A view from the field looking down on Gillerthwaite and ourselves.

The green cabinet is our new fibre broadband box . . . as yet without any equipment or wiring inside.

In the garden . . . a hint of sunshine perhaps ?

Certainly more sunshine than gardening going on.

The garden bird table has been re-stocked . . . much to the relief of all concerned.

Birds make tracks to the food.
A Chaffinch with a seed in its beak.

A Coal Tit goes for the extra food placed on the top of the local ski slope.

A short time later, a Nuthatch on the same stone.

Our resident Puffin not taking so well to the winter conditions.

Lunchtime and the weather is definitely brightening.

I posted a picture on the BBC Weather Watchers site this morning . . . and lo and behold . . .

Mr Paul Mooney chose it as his background picture for the lunchtime weather forecast.

I await the fame and fortune !
