Snow arrives in January

 

      

 

      

The lane is very quiet

 

             

The sheep have their feed available in the snow

 

      

Most of the Blackbirds, Robins, Sparrows etc. are inside various sheds, barns and outbuidings

 

      

 

      

Incredible transformations of hedges

 

      

...... and buildings and fences

 

Icicles getting longer and longer on this outbuilding

 

             

 

        

 

             

Snow makes getting feed to sheep a priority
