Dorset’s Delicious Bits | A Wintery Scene

This week, we had one of the first proper frosts of the season. We woke up to a covering of white crispiness, making the coming of Christmas and the winter months seem even closer.  That morning, all of my Twitter buddies were posting their own frosty views, with comments such as ‘breathtaking’ and ‘aren’t we lucky to live here’.

The U.K. is full of stunning views and incredible countryside, but it was so warming to read the thoughts of local Dorset dwellers and be humbled by their gratitude and wonder for the sights that we wake up to every morning.

For today’s post, I thought that I would offer up my own appreciation for the little gorgeous details of my rural patch of this county.  After stealing downstairs at the first sign of proper sunshine and dressing in as much woollen attire as I could find, I crunched my way through the grass to find these little gems to share with you. Although my fingers were about to drop off from the cold (I can’t handle my camera with gloves), I was not short of fantastic sights to snap away at.

I even found thistles resembling snowflakes! Have a wonderful Sunday!
