Just a narrow band of colour for the Sunrise over Manby yesterday:
Is this the 21st Century version of a Scarecrow - a Scarecar?
Seen in the middle of a field along with billowing fabric:
Can't say I've seen this idea before. Is the fabric on poles meant to give an impression of people I wonder? Certainly there were no Wood Pigeons to be seen nearby for a change.
There are still the usual gas cannons going off round the village. This is the first year Penny has taken little notice of them. She normally reacts badly to sudden loud noises and usually tries to bolt but seems to have got used to them after four years..
Last week I showed this XnSketch version of a photograph:
This is the original photo:
One of a pair of artificial holly balls I bought to replace hanging baskets for the Winter. As well as being pretty realistic they also contain some miniature LED lights which come on at night. The battery and solar panel are contained in the small unit on top of each pole.
Congratulations to The Weaver of Grass for working out it was holly.
Many thanks to all who had a go at identifying this year's teasers.
That was the last Teaser for this year.
Some time in the new year I will think of something to tease you with.
This evening was one of those rarer occasions when there was very little cloud in the West while the Sun was setting so all the gorgeous colour was on the cloud formations towards the East:
As for the dire warning of snow for us yesterday. It was almost a case of what snow, here anyway. Some very fine snow with an hour of the fluffy stuff which started to settle and then vanished. Mainly sleet and rain.
More than a bit surprised when I was scanning the video captures to see what had been visiting the bird table. Born like it or the result of an altercation with a cat or another Robin? We will never know.
