I woke to a welcome sunny but frostymorning which lifted my spirits no end. After breakfast and a cup of coffee I set off for a quick walk round the Castleholm. I stopped off at the bungalow and topped up the electric and gas meters. I've had some interest in it lately but no offers as yet hopefully come the spring someone may see the potential the property offers. I passed by the new primary school where the children were getting ready to go to class.
The remains of an old clay pipe that someone had found and laid on a stone onthe way to the Duchess Bridge. The initials T W were quite intriguing, were they the owner or the maker?
Looking upstream from Duchess bridge a scene that never seems to come out well when photographed
It's always difficult to get a shot of the bridge without treesvand beanches getting in the way
I stopped admire the ice patterns in some puddles
Sunlight and shadows
It was a good morning for frosthair
Two important town bridges
The Ministers poultry enjoying the sunshine and....
....the frosted ivy caught my eye on the Manse wall
