Today is cold and frosty and I ventured out into the garden to see if I could get some photos. Firstly I was taking photos of frozen water droplets on the grass. Sadly squatting down to get photos of grass really hurts, so I couldn’t do it for long. As the sun got higher theContinue reading “Shiny”
I stepped outside with my camera. I hadn’t realised it had been so long – the last photos I took were on 11th November! There was not much to see in the garden but I found a few things to capture.
The last few blog posts were scheduled last weekend, and they show a sunny, early spring kind of feel. However what has actually happened since I took those photos is the weather taking a more wintry turn. We have had snow and strong winds which have transformed my village with deep snow drifts. It’s reallyContinue reading “Snow Drifts”
After the sunny raindrops last Saturday, the raindrops on the Sunday were quite different! I went out in the garden to see if I could get some shots of the frost and discovered there were frozen raindrops all over the place! Strange and beautiful. The quality of these photos is not as good as I’dContinue reading “Ice Droplets”
I was wandering in my parent’s garden earlier in the week and the teasels kept catching my eye. I think I may have to get some for my own garden! In this first picture it was a bright sunny winter day and the teasel was glowing with warmth. Perfect for one last entry to the weeklyContinue reading “Warm Teasel ~ Cold Teasel”
The frost was more impressive today. Yesterday was a sparse ground frost only. Today it was one of those frosts that coats everything including ground, plants, trees, and pretty much every garden fixture. I should have taken a wide shot to show how white it all was, but as usual I went the macro routeContinue reading “A world of white”
I’m visiting my parents for Christmas and on a morning potter around the garden and nearby lanes, we spotted a patch of frosty grass where you could see the little ‘towers’ of frost. Even thought it’s rather chilly, I’m kind of wishing for more hard frosts and icicles! 🙂
My nose is full of custard. My head is packed with booze-soaked sponge cake. I am become trifle from this cold. This summer cold that my daughter gave me, after bemoaning her fate repeatedly. Now it’s my turn. My trifle-head may be worse than hers unfortunately, what with the drugs and all. All week myContinue reading “cold horror”
I nipped out this afternoon for a brief walk in the cold wind, between downpours, and went to see the snowdrops down the road and see how they’re growing. They’re looking lovely. Not easy to get a decent shot as the light was not good, but this will have to do.
