Lovely! Did you see that amazing photo of the lighthouse in USA on the news last night? That was really incredible...we think we have it cold here, but we have nothing compared to those guys! Even Paris was colder than here a couple of days ago!

I love variegated leaves TT. Not so keen on frost lol but it does look 'Christmassy' :o)

16 Dec, 2010

 

Hywel, I took the dog out today for a short walk and I had on my Cossack hat and fur coat etc.etc. and it was so cold I got a headache! Roll on Spring!

16 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks Hywel ...
...variegated leaves are lovely aren't they ... :o)

Yes, Karen... I saw the frozen lighthouse... chilly !

16 Dec, 2010

 

Oh yes Karen I agree ! We have heavy rain today - better then snow but it's so dark. I'll be glad to see the days get longer. Next week it will start :o)

YW TT :o)

OH yes! 5 days to go! We should have a GOY shortest day ritual celebration!! Any ideas? Perhaps we could have our own solstice ritual and take pics! I'm not doing naked btw....too scary!

16 Dec, 2010

Many times I really don't know what I've photographed till I see it enlarged on the computer screen.... one of the magical advantages of modern technology ! :o)

16 Dec, 2010

16 Dec, 2010

18 Dec, 2010

18 Dec, 2010

Mother Nature guarantees to melt it all ... eventually !
Snow has just started falling again here ...

18 Dec, 2010

 

Lovely photo TT! I love your photos of "frosty subjects"! LOL! Going into my favs as well. :-))

No snow here as yet today. (20.45)

18 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks, Balcony...
I'm pleased this is going on your favourites... :o)))
No snow ? Apparently there's snow only a few miles south of you (20.48) ... so that's amazing you've missed it so far ...
Keep safe and warm. ...

18 Dec, 2010

 

No snow fell here last night though our daughter who lives in a small village just 5 miles away said they had had snow there!

But it's not the first time that we have escaped things like heavy rain, thunderstorms or heavy rain when she has had it there! In fact we were in her house in the middle of August for lunch & there was a big thunderstorm & more rain than we have seen the 9 years we have lived here! Yet a few hours later when we got back home it didn't look as if it had rained here!

19 Dec, 2010

 

Oh that is beautiful.......

19 Dec, 2010

 

Thanks Dotty :o)

Balcony ...
seems like you live in a micro-climate ;o)

Then keep warm and safe! xxx
+9 degrees here today...The snow is melting down...

23 Dec, 2010

 

All cosy here indoors :o) ...
... outside temperature staying around freezing all day....

23 Dec, 2010

 

Fantastic...!!!

At first glance I though about the Brazilian flag!!!

Angels have been busy decorating the world for Christmas

25 Dec, 2010

 

Merry Christmas Aleyna ...
Mother Nature knows how to make pretty patterns :o)))

25 Dec, 2010

 

Micro climate, TT? Perhaps you are right as we seem to avoid most of the extremes other people seem to have. Sometimes it seems to me that we live on another planet when I read people's comments & see pictures of what's happening where they are!

We DO (believe it or not) sometimes get heavy rain or snow but even on those occasions we seem to be better off than most others! I don't know what geographical accident accounts for our "benign" micro climate here in H'don but it certainly doesn't stop the winds, which can be as equally devastating here as elsewhere in the country.

Just 5 miles away where our daughter lives the weather is often worse than it is here.

25 Dec, 2010

 

Hi Balcony...
... maybe those strong winds blow the worst of the weather further afield... lol.
Merry Christmas :o)
