As the days lengthen...
...the frost strengthens, as the cheerful Scottish saying goes. And indeed it does. After a night of freezing temperatures and hail on Sunday I looked out to discover my early daffodils drooping with the frost. I'm waiting to see how resilient they're going to be.
The quad of Edinburgh University's Old College looks Christmas-cardish in the snow. And what's that little disturbance slightly to the left of centre?
A mini snow...Martian?
All in all, the snow is an excuse for that savoury Scottish morning pick-me-up - a bacon or sausage roll.
