Pheasants in the Frost


The temperature has really dropped these last couple of days, and it was very cold last night.  Today the frost hasn't really cleared, so everywhere has been white and sparkly.  The older male pheasant visited this morning, along with the younger male pheasant and his Mrs.  Their colours look even more beautiful against the white background of the frosty grass.

D&G Council Civic Reception / Glasgow 2014

Last night I attended a Civic Reception in Dumfries celebrating volunteers, athletes and baton bearers for Glasgow 2014 from the region.  It was a lovely evening, and I felt quite special as I was mentioned in the presentation, and one of my pictures was on the front of the programme for the evening!

I didn't have a chance to take many pictures, as it was quite jam packed with presentations, speeches, a quiz and a food break!  Here are the few pictures I did take:

Look, there's me!  I didn't even notice for a while until I saw it out the corner of my eye!!

I was placed on the Canadian table - very apt (as I was CGA Assistant to team Canada!).
