The colours of winter
The last weekend of January. So often cold and bright (they are giving us a maximum of +1 degree, with a wind chill factor of -5). The first of the winter flowers can be seen in the woods - the lovely winter aconites (right) and snowdrops (not out quite yet).
There is the Australian Open finals to watch in the mornings and this year we have had Kim Clijsters win the women's this morning (great match!) and tomorrow it is 'our' Andy Murray pitched against Novac Djokovic, should be a thriller!
What's more, it is the FA Cup Forth Round and 'my' team Southampton are hosting Manchester United (again) later this afternoon, something to listen to on the radio while taking a bath.
I love the rhythms of the year.
