Father Christmas passed this way
Some people don’t believe in Father Christmas. But here’s all the evidence you need. Clear evidence that Father Christmas and his helpers have been checking Bepton this week for naughty children. He’s left his footprints everywhere…
It’s cold, but magical out there today. Suffering from cabin fever, so went for a brisk stroll in the lane as the sun was setting over Bepton Down and Linch Down. Definitely working from home today.
Nothing happening in Bepton today!
There’s not a lot happening in Bepton today! Apart from lots of white stuff falling from the skies… The only people moving around are the lucky folk with tractors, 4x4s, skis and skidoos. Bepton’s pretty isolated from the outside world right now. On a positive note, it’s a winter wonderland!
What is Hoar Frost?
Cow Parsley, Wild Chervil, Wild Beaked Parsley, Keck… call it what you will, it looks great covered in frost! And this is Hoar Frost. Water crystals in the air which is below freezing. In this case there was a breeze from the right to left of the photo, making the frost stick to the left hand side of the plant. Cool. (Literally).
Bepton, a snowy wilderness!
The road into Bepton on the morning of the 1st December 2010. A beautiful view for drivers of tractors, sledges and skidoos. Not good for mere mortals planning to drive to work! My car is a Saab – all the way from Sweden but it’s not going anywhere today!
