It has been one of those beautiful clear winter days - the kind that is momentarily warm enough to undo your jacket, bask in some sunshine, and dream of Spring.
The snow is melting a bit - and boy, we have had a lot. December came in hard and fast and was the month that just kept on giving. Inches of the white stuff. My back garden is still 10 inches deep.
The dogs loved the opportunity to run today. Dog outings have been mostly short, brisk and functional these past few weeks.
Honey relishes the whole back-rub thing....
... again and again and again.
However, during this hazardous sport, snow does get in your ears.

And as ever on my blog, I insist on showing you the mountains. You can't get bored of a view like that, can you?
And if you do, perhaps you can fly off somewhere new?
