A Freezing Cold Picnic

Hello lovely blog readers.
Here in sunny little England it is fair to say that we are now very much feeling the winter chill after several lucky months of mild autumn. However, being the brave, if a little fool hardy, adventurers we are, Daniel and I decided to brave the biting January cold and spend yesterday's sunny afternoon going for a lovely long walk through the Westonbirt Arboretum with a picnic.
It was lovely. We had a nice time wandering between the trees and following a seasonal trail that had been set out to show all of the best winter trees. We both decided that by far our favourite was the Chinese Witch Hazel which boasted bright yellow flowers that would have looked at home on the sea bed.
It was really nice to take my much loved Nikon out for the afternoon too after so long. I managed to get some interestingly lit photos of trees, some lovely photos of Daniel and even some cows we found wandering around. I cant really think of a much nicer afternoon... especially when it was rounded off nicely with a big cup of soya milk hot chocolate :D
What did everyone else do this weekend?
