Beauty in the snow

12 comments


It started to snow yesterday evening and although it didn’t look as if it would settle, there was quite a covering first thing this morning. It’s certainly not as cold today as it was yesterday. I love to see tree branches with snow on them and I took a few photos in case it thaws later today…


Even though it looks as if the world is black and white and looking lovely, I don’t really want it to stay like this for long….lol

It looks just lovely!! But we've just being saying that all our bulbs are budding and plant are already growing back so hopefully even though it's pretty to look at, we won't get a lot more!!

It was just a few large flakes falling very slowly before we went to bed, so it was a surprise to see it had started to settled overnight. It feels so much milder out there this morning without that icy wind we've had lately.

It started here about 10pm last night and when first getting up this morning it was white in the garden but nowhere near as much as you have had, nearly all gone now, I can live with that, winters shown its face and now it can go, lol...Your garden looks so pretty wearing its winter coat..

I am pleased to say it's thawing slowly now. At least the roads are clear. I have been around the garden knocking off the heaviest snow from the plants and bushes that got damaged in the last snowfall. I thought about making a snow angel but it's not as much fun without the grandchildren......

The trees do look pretty with the snow. But, it doesn't seem to be worrying the hellebores.what a lovely one that is in your hand.

You summed it up perfectly, there is a lot of beauty in the snow here.
My favourite photo is the 7th one, the hellebore in your hand.
