They are the darkest of days, they are the whitest of days.
The dark brings light.

Some more snow photos from our very local area.
Stay warm and safe. x
A beautiful sunny day again today. The sun is melting the hard frost from yesterday, the snow is almost melted from the mountain tops, the primroses are starting to appear! but it’s not over yet – is it? I for one certainly have a feeling that the bulk of snow hasn’t arrived yet. We did have a fair amount in january that only hung around for a couple of days. I am personally hoping for snowfall in the last days of February (for my Birthday!). Hopefully warming up again before lambing.
Sun shining through the last of the ice today 12th February.
Sunrising at Talmine Harbour 30th January
The Little stone bridge and just a slight covering of snow left on Ben Hope in the background. Today 12th February.

The festive season over and the holiday season not upon us yet there have been a few opportunities to get out and take some photos. Here are some favourites.
I was so pleased to be invited to help (with the fleeces) In the clipping shed. The sheep were very pleased to be unloading the weight.
In the evenings I have been attempting to card and spin the wool. I have made a drop spindle and am at present getting the fleece to resemble thread! I learnt from youtube video’s and no 2 are the same so trial and much error! Time is the main factor.
We have had many visits from family and friends, sadly I have written the photos to our other hard drive and need to upload these before 7am (data allowance) So I will attempt another family and friends blog sooooooon!!
Here are some summer into Autumn photos.

Currently we are working flat out on the croft. We are building drystone walls, repairing tracks, fencing, planting trees etc. The daylight hours are short so sun up to sundown there is no time to waste having a break, drink, rest take photo’s etc. Another subject for the next blog. We are currently creating a track down our croft , which anyone who has visited will be aware REALLY needed attention!
