Frosted Pain

This water stop tap caused me great pain this morning when I caught my toe on it and went arse-over-tit onto the road.

Grazed hands and knees and a bump on the back of the head. Nothing too serious. I'm glad a car didn't come along though, else I'd have been squished. The dogs ran off but came back when they realised I was no longer following.



Ground frost this morning and long shadows.


Frosty field.



Laburnum seeds against a bright blue sky




But for the colour of the trees, this could be a summer photograph.



Frosted leaves






Twin poplars
leave a column of frost
on the grass.




Frost drawings on the surface of the pond.




The field
Frosty ground.



Cemetery with
summer sky










This 'I love you' cushion was abandoned and filthy on the roadside.

Dirty love?

Good heavens! You could have killed yourself!
The abandoned love cushion is so sad (and very evocative - no doubt you can knit a story around this).

I've complained to the council.

It could be a story. Very sad.

I hoped you showed them your injuries and threatened to sue them!

My mother did exactly the same thing and came away with quite a bit of money in her pocket.

They do have the responsibility of keeping their stuff safe for the citizens. Dammit all anyway! Why don't people take responsibility for things? Sue them - the bastards!

Nothing too debilitating - just grazed hands and knees and a bump. Nothing to sue over, though i did write to them.

I loved the frosted leaves. And again... poor head! I'm glad you wrote to the council.

Dull today with no frost. Head fine but knee hurts.

Poor RAch, blooming thing. Hope you mend very soon. Love the frosty pictures, and the cushion is kinda sad.

The word verification I had to type was 'kaysat'!!!

Thanks Gina. It could have happened to someone frailer than I, and it's being fixed.

Katsat? haha.
