The Estate in December

When I was over there just before Christmas I took a walk around the 'estate' and down to the beach . . . 

The men folk were discussing how the mice are getting into the roof space.  (I wonder if they are using that handy step ladder, myself!)
In the front garden the rosehips added some seasonal colour.

Down in the copse all those bulbs that were planted are beginning show above ground!
It was quite wet and slippery by the stream.

I think Dad said that that tree in the middle of the picture is one they named 'straight trunk' many years back.
I found these spindle berries by the entrance to the enclosure.

There was a chilly breeze down on the beach.
You can just make out the car ferry in the misty distance.  (Very atmospheric!!!)
