Look what decided to pop onto our lunch table on Saint Stephens Days (Boxing Day).
Poor thing much have pupated somewhere in the house and the warm temperatures made it emerge too early. We tried to give it some sugar water. It was about till yesterday but haven’t seen it today.
Today is the winter solstice. It is dark and grey, but thankfully from tomorrow the days will start getting lighter. It is too dark for a photo this morning but here is one from earlier this month.
Last week, the whole place seemed to be muffled by a great, white blanket. And for just a short few hours we seemed to have a silent world.
We had snow overnight and tonight temperatures are expected to drop to about Minus two degrees! Not that common in the west of Ireland!
