Gordon’s away for a couple of days, so I’m on morning dog-feeding and walking duty. This morning we recorded a temperature of -4 degrees Celsius on the front porch – and there was definitely a frost coating the paddocks! Here’s a few photos, taken while the dogs sniffed around at interesting smells while we walked:

The forecast for tomorrow morning is only for -1, but as I was well-rugged up this morning, and didn’t feel the cold too badly, I should be fine tomorrow.
