Winter wonderland.

I know everyone has their fair share of snow, but as I do spend a great deal of time whinging about my shady conditions and being surrounded by trees I thought that I better at least show them with their winter coats on. These pictures were taken yesterday (Thursday) and it was still snowing when I took the first batch from my back doorstep so they are a bit dark.





The last three are from different parts of the garden and were taken later so are brighter.

  1. Lovely black and white pictures but they make me shiver !
    We have not had anything like your snow and today (the day after your pictures) there is no snow to be found and the sun has shone all day. Its the upside of our low annual precipitation here in York

  3. It is more exciting when snow happens a few days a year. When it lasts more than 4 months every years, it loses some of its charm! However for us very cold days are sunny days and, with the snow reflection, they are the brightest days of the year.

    1. You are quite correct Alain, it is a big deal for us, usually because it causes chaos and then is gone within a couple of days. I can only remember one winter when the snow persisted for several weeks and we were treated to sun and blue skies.

  4. Lovely photos Rick, although I am not at all jealous of your snow – you can just keep it :-) So far I have seen 10-12 snowflakes very early yesterday morning, they melted on their way down. Nothing on the ground. I hope that’s it for this winter, I am ready for spring.

  5. I don't blame you Helene, I would be much happier if the snow stayed with us and kept my plants snug through the winter as it would actually be better for many of them. Roll on spring!
