There is ice on the water here and the clear blue skies overnight means it is very cold when I get out of bed to take Gladys out , but when dawn breaks and the sunshine streams into the boat it is glorious.
We have had no clouds for nearly a week and the colour would bring out the artist in me , if I could draw that is.
Spring is coming the days are getting longer and buds and flowers will appear soon, cannot wait.
