I love having picnics at our table in the woods and last Sunday was a perfect day to have one.
It was very impromptu: apples, olives, cheese and hot cross buns with tea.
My parents' Thermos -- formerly for business meetings -- always comes in handy for our picnics.
With just a crust of ice on an inch of snow on the picnic table, it was a perfect way to sip tea in 12C degrees. No wind.
Just blue sky and a bit of snow on the ground, receding in the sunlight.
