The weather on this day was crisp and cold, just right for a walk along the banks of the Alt Mhor burn.
I love the white frost on the grass and the sparkles on the water.
It's worth clicking on the pictures to enlarge them.

The dogs are enjoying exploring the walk along the burn, one of their favourite places.
The water droplets left after the frost melted on the trees and shrubs sparkle like diamonds.

The water beneath this little bridge is shall, usually a place that Bryan likes to paddle, but it was to cold
for him today. 

These little Christmas trees don't need any fairy lights, look how they shine in the winter sun.
This rotting tree stump has become a tiny garden.

I like all these photos of your beautiful countryside but the last one is stunning - a veritable garden, indeed :-)

Such a great place for a walk. Beautiful photos. The last one looks like an underwater garden.

Beautiful place. November before "the snow" seems such a long time ago!

You're absolutely correct - it IS worth clicking on these photos. They are magnificent! Bryan and Jarvis look like they are truly enjoying the beautiful day, cold as it may be.

I agree with Happyone about the last photo looking like an underwater garden. =)

To answer your question about my post of the John Oliver cabin: The wood around the cabin is a split-rail fence, which was commonly used in during that era in heavily forested regions. The fence was made from logs split lengthwise and was easy to construct, easy to repair, and could be moved if necessary. No fence posts were required.
