Some hope! Basher Brown came and took a look at our offering in the back garth, preparing to move a few branches for us. When he saw how much there was he said, "Have your own ....... bonfire!"
There were still a lot of leaves to fall.
But, after a exciting village bonfire night, when a cold north wind created a roaring fire , giving us very warm fronts and very cold backs, we woke to the sight of falling snow.
Same view, different day!
The trees looked lovely seen from our bedroom window.
But we had yet to light our own bonfire!
(Neither was it good weather for hanging washing on the line.)
Time to go out for a walk and look at the village in the snow.
Following the beck up to the small waterfall.
You can see how soft the snow was
and how low the light level.
By the following day much of the snow had gone.
