Today we woke up to a still, crisp and cold morning here in the West of Ireland.
Down by the pond the ice was quite thick and all the plants were covered in beautiful sparkling ice crystals.
Walking down the garden path we were delighted to see all the grasses shimmering in the morning light.
We spent another ten minutes just wandering slowly through the garden, marvelling at the natural beauty to be found all around.
After that it was time to harvest some kale, fill up the bird feeders and head inside for a cup of steaming hot coffee. Life is beautiful.
