Shiny

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 the…… Continue reading Shiny

Snowdrop

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.
