"Oh no, I've got a windmill for a head".
This is a classic photographic blunder, but I decided to keep it as it made me laugh. The girls enjoyed this morning being out on grass again after the snow covering it for nearly a month, and it certainly cheered me up. I needed it.
Earlier on this morning, I discovered my two poor little fish had died , frozen in their pond, their little bodies completely encapsulated in ice. I felt so dreadful, that I couldn't do more to prevent it, I had even built a sort of green house to try and thaw them out quicker, but on speaking to my mom, hers had died too. It's certainly been a cruel winter for some animals. Nature can be so harsh sometimes and this weekend it seems to be my poor animals who are suffering.
Still, the girls were in high spirits so it really lifted me, just being out in the garden with them and watching them take so much pleasure in the simplest things made me feel better.
