Morning Frost, West Sussex

Trees, Horsham, West Sussex January 2020

Christmas isn’t the coldest time of the year in the UK. In December, we can usually relax because the coldest months for us are January and February, So, after a relativly wet Christmas, the weather has turned increasingly colder and finally we having really hard frosts – as you can see in these photographs.

Frost on Tree, Horsham, West Sussex January 2020

This year, I forget to buy a calendar and to make any New Year’s resolutions. Is it too late? What should they be? I like taking photographs – as you can see. Should it be to do with that? During lockdown I wrote a novel (I think there will be glut of novels when this is over) – struggling with editing at the moment. Should they be to do with that?

What do you want to do in the New Year?

Frost, Horsham, West Sussex December 2020

Right now, like many people in the UK, I’m living in lockdown again!

I think I’ve written it before, but one of the things I have appreciated this year, has been the opportunity to notice the passing seasons. I particularly remember the change from spring into early summer, and now, with the hard frost this morning, I’ve noticed we are in the hard part of winter. The picture is of ice which formed on my car overnight – I have taken pictures of this before, because I love the patterns the ice makes.

There is a weather forcast for snow tomorrow – have to see how that goes!

Ice, Emory 2000

When I moved to to Atlanta, I was convinced that I had managed to avoid a British winter and that it would be short sleeves all year round. You know, ‘cos it’s  next to Florida. As it turns out, I was wrong, and it was freezing!

I think I found this picture in Emory, which is a small suburb of Atlanta near Decatur where I lived (home to an illustrious college).
