Finally, we've got some snow too!  After England was off on Monday, we just had sunshine, but it's been snowing all morning here.  It does seem to hide the carpet of snowdrops that we have at the moment.  The rhododendron on the front drive always flowers in January and February, it adds a touch of colour at this time of year.  
Damon has no snow on Mull yet this week, but it is very cold.  Adding the insulation in the livingroom and blocking off holes is making the croft much warmer and the Aga is just managing to heat it still with lots of jumpers!  
I had tried to increase the number of beehives that I have, but unfortunately it hasn't worked.  Saturday was a very warm day and I went to give them some more sugar solution, and two of the hives have died, so now only 1 hive remains, and that is the aggressive hive.  After looking at them in summer I'm normally covered in about 50 beestings on my suit.  But they get a lot more kudos if they survive the winter!
