Wow Lesley, looks like a giant has been blowing huge smoke rings.

I'm a slower typist than Lesley! We said almost the same thing.

Happy New Year

Thank you, Marion. Your thread has been a delight. I'll miss it next year, or can you think of a reason for doing another one? Please!

Frosty -8° this morning, so I don't suppose there will be many flowers here, but there are some roses that look frozen.

Horses knocked down 3 fence posts yesterday and got into a little wood that I'd fenced off as one of them eats barks which kills the trees. I'd forgotten to put the electric fence on - usually they don't notice.

Not doing anything for New Year, first time for ages, perhaps ever, bit of a relief.

Glad you like it Mrs. G. When we bought the house in 1990 it had been on the market for years and unlived in for 6 years. No one wanted it because of the isolation and the state of the house, but, once you get up the 1 km long drive (which was in a state in those days, better now) it's only 20 mins drive to the town. Hard work in the early years though, but I was younger then.

 My house is in a clearing in the forest beyond the field.


Went out for a walk this afternoon, chilly 2° but sun was shining.

Local chateau.

Poincianas are flame trees that grow between 5 and 12 metres. They grow in tropical climates. Is that what you mean?
