Mild and muddy

On Thursday, when I left to take Mike's mum back to England, the snow had melted enough to tempt the chickens back into the orchard.

Since then, nearly all the snow has gone and everything's wet and mucky.

The only bits of snow left are the remains of the large drifts.

It was colder in England than it was here, which is pretty unusual for January! The lake in front of our house still isn't frozen - much like last year in fact. Usually there are people skating and ice-fishing on it by now.
