Snowy day

34 comments


Although i do love the picturesque scenes that snow gives i’m not a great lover of it any more….. but i do marvel at how it can change the perspective of the garden..

How it all started… a single snowflake..

My poor washing line

My Passion flower has had a battering but still growing..

Carex ‘red rooster’ a bit sad to look at..

Bunny tail still ok though..

Rh. ‘Shamrock’

Trees from the side of the house…

goat willow at the back of my garden..

love how it all sparkles at night…

from a cold and snowy Surrey and at minus 4c :-) wishing you all a happy snow day and thanks for looking….

Great, love the sequence of shots. We haven't got snow and I do miss the little things it gets up to apart from the annoyances.

I think the snow and frost on trees always looks beautiful.

Nice pictures - keeps the garden that bit warmer from harsh frosts. Hope the passion flower will be okay - they're a bit tender aren't they. Weather on BBC said a bit warmer tomorrow onwards - think I'll just leave it to them now :D

Yes trees always look excellent snow covered !!

Unusual set of photos. I especially like the final one with the sparkles :o)

11 Feb, 2012

 

Oh you seem to have got tons of the stuff
:o( I hope it thaws soon.

How did you capture that lovely sparkle, it looks like a field of diamonds, the sun is out and shining on two lines across the garden, I love those sparkles.

thanks Terra :-)
Thanks Hywel, it's melting fast here but now the temperature is dropping fast.... this morning -9.3
thanks Sticki, night shot very slow shutter speed :-))

11 Feb, 2012

 

I did press 'like' but I have to admit...I don't really like the white stuff much any more..not after last year. My poor Mum will be stuck indoors too no doubt. Hope it thaws soon S.lad. I'm so glad we don't have any and I really hope it stays that way!

11 Feb, 2012

 

i will have to investigate my camera further, thanks SL
