Frost, fire and family

Last Sunday we woke up to a heavy frost and despite cold fingers I just had to try and capture these ice crystals in a photo.

If there is one thing that cannot be rushed it is bread, particularly in this weather.  

Pieces of home raised lamb.  Neck and shank meat, destined for a slow cook in the wood oven.

Sparkly candles almost upstaged by a gentle winter sunset.

A hearty meal, a solid brew, a fire and family to share it all with. 

I think a solstice dinner is destined to become a new family tradition. It is a perfect excuse for reflecting on winter and teaching our children about the changing seasons and patterns of life. 

Happy Friday friends, stay warm x
