Its that time of year when autumn morphs into winter through swirling, secretive mists.
These foggy days remind me of old Sherlock Holmes films, where Baker Street was always cloaked in fog and Holmes would call to Watson, 'The game's afoot!' as they jumped into a hackney cab to solve the mystery!
Wonder what game is afoot this week? Have fun!

I've made a few visits to the duck pond over the last week and was entertained by the gulls sliding about on the areas frozen over during the spell of icy weather we've had.
On the next visit I found them all lined up on the fence and I think we could make up a new song, "Ten pretty sea gulls sitting on the fence!"
But if one (or more!) pretty seagull should decide to fly away...
There'd be only three pretty seagulls sitting on the fence!"

I was busy making dinner when my son called, "Mum, you need to see this sunset!"
(He knows me so well, that I wouldn't want to miss a chance to snap a photo of this!)
So I dashed upstairs to be able to catch the skies above the trees around the house.
The blend and mix of colours were spectacular!
(And BTW, the dinner wasn't burned!!)

Happy December! It really felt like Christmas with the frosts coating our world with glistening white crystals and this fence at an equestrian centre glittered in the early morning sunlight.
I din't mind breaking the rules to shoot into the sun for this silhouette of the fence and horse in the distance.
I had to stop and enjoy the leaves too! Makes me thankful we have frosts!
So pleased to see that Michelle has opened a new 'Thankful Thursday' link in party HERE
Hopefully linking with our new host for Good Fences - Gosia, thank you to her.
Love to hear from you!

Dromore Cathedral as it sits on the bank of the river Lagan. Yew trees aplenty in this graveyard.
The first church on the site was a wattle and daub building constructed by St Colman circa 510. This was replaced by a medieval church which was destroyed in the late 16th century. The church was again rebuilt and in 1609 elevated to the "Cathedral Church of Christ the Redeemer" by Letters Patent of James I. In 1641 this building, too, was destroyed.
The present building was first constructed under Bishop Jeremy Taylor in 1661 as a narrow church 100 feet (30 metres) long. In 1811 Thomas Percy (bishop of Dromore) added a short aisle at right angles to the nave to form an L-shaped floor plan. In 1870 a semicircular sanctuary and organ aisle were added. Finally in 1899 an additional aisle parallel to the original nave aisle was added to achieve a conventional rectangular floor plan. (Wikipedia)
The graveyard is full of leaning headstones.
