Silly snow sculptures by Mother Nature...

30 comments


As I am forced to spend more time than I like indoors I thought I would show you some of the shapes I can see in the garden from the windows before I go snow blind or stir crazy. I expect most of you will have noticed all the different shapes out there in your gardens. Here’s a few of mine……

I should have made Emily come inside when it started snowing again……….

Meet the next door neighbours……. They can be a bit frosty ’till you get to know them…….

The Christmas tree wants to be a snowman…

This looks like the squirrel got frozen to the front of the oil lamp………

Is that an octopus clinging to the top of the pergola..

I politely refused the offer of a dip in the neighbours pool…

It only needs a model of the Titanic floating in front of this iceberg….

She still won’t come in………….

Be safe but have fun out there. xx

It's easy to see daft things isn't it Lin when you are a crack-pot like us all on Goy.....
Glad it gave you a chuckle SS. We all need one with what we are putting up with at the moment.
Hywel I have no idea what made the arms and hands. It has been gradually leaning over throughout the day and gently swinging in the breeze. I was becoming obsessed with watching it.

How fantastic - must have been really, really cold for the snow to maintain such peculiar shapes - for all the world like arms clinging onto the swing, extraordinary. Thanks for sharing.
