Winter at last!

Finally it seems that Winter has arrived in the Loire valley.  We had a little snow a couple of days ago and temperatures dropped to minus 8 this morning.  These shots were taken first thing while I was walking the dog just by our house.  We are lucky enough to be situated just beside the GR3 - one of France's mapped walks.  Good news for the vines - a good cold snap kills off viruses and diseases.
