A Taste of Winter

Well the forecasters were right and sure enough the temperatures have gradually fallen as the week has progressed. Winter has arrived at last.
Certainly we haven’t had anything unusually cold for January. Although overnight temperatures were just about down to freezing point the greenhouse roof was frosted on Friday morning despite the early morning sunshine.
I took pity on the sparrows who were busy pecking at the iced up water in the bird bath in an attempt to get a drink. A kettle full of hot water quickly thawed out the ice.

In the whole of December we only had 7 days when the temperature didn't reach 10°C (50°F). So far in 2016 we've to reach the dizzy heights of 10°C. Still not yet had any snow in Ossett though!
