Before the snow came..


We have been trying to make an effort to make good use of our Saturday mornings and not be so lazy but be up and out before 1000hrs. This is much to Smudge's disgust as she is far from an early riser but so long as her daddy is with her she copes.
A cold morning but little breeze at  Mountstewart. It almost felt that nature was a bit confused, leaves off the rhodedendrons and yet a few of the varieties were flowering.






It was also a surprise to see the 4 young swans still with their parents, I am sure they haven't stayed around as long previous years. This one was particularly cheeky as it crossed our path and hissed at Smudge as it made it's way to the lake.
