Moss aglow

Even though there is a lot of grey around at this time of year there are still the occasional splashes of vibrant colour even before the spring arrives. A few weeks back I spotted this moss glowing in the (rare) sunshine. I love the bokeh 🙂 Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: Vibrant.

I is for Icicle

Ok I admit this is a fairly tenuous link to the Weekly Photo Challenge which is ‘Alphabet’ this week… but this is what is available to photograph at the moment. It starts with an I and is the shape of an I too … well, the ‘grown up’ icicles would be – these are moreContinue reading “I is for Icicle”

Woodland Secrets

The weather turned brighter today and I had another lovely walk, apart a gentle sprinkling that had me putting my camera under my coat briefly. However since there are not a huge amount of insects or flowers at this time of year, I turned to the woodland to find the small things that lurk inContinue reading “Woodland Secrets”

Off-Season Crochet Madness

In the winter when there are no insects and flowers to look at, it’s nice to make your own pretty things indoors 🙂 This is what I’ve been up to recently – a beautiful Lily blanket designed by Jane Crowfoot (usingContinue reading “Off-Season Crochet Madness”

A Drop of Snow

I ventured out in the cold yesterday as the sun was shining and had a little walk round the village. As you’d expect at this time of year there weren’t any insects but I was delighted to see my first snowdrops of the year! There was one little bunch in the hedgerow, and this oneContinue reading “A Drop of Snow”

Icy Bug’s Eye View

Today I awoke to a sprinkling of snow and/or hail. The weather has been decidedly wintry lately, though we haven’t had a good snowfall, just a sprinkling here and there. The pond is frozen over and it’s very chilly. I went out to have a look and see what I could see (as I do!)Continue reading “Icy Bug’s Eye View”
