Snow

So, the UK appears to have come to a standstill… the schools are all shut, the kids are all out sledging, and the garden looks like it’s been suspended in time.  A garden in the snow…. hope you enjoy…

Feed the birds… but as fast as you fill the feeders up, the snow comes down again and buries it.

The Viburnum. Pretty in the frost… pretty in the snow.

Branches full of the white stuff.

Kale in the veg plot. One of the few things that’s actually growing at this time of year. I do actually think the stuff is indestructable!

  1. When you are up to your knees in snow and it’s cold, 43c and blazing sunshine looks good. Conversely,when you are sweltering in a 44c scorcher in the middle of a heatwave, a snow covered garden looks lovely.

    • I prefer the snow to intense heat any day. We visited Pompeii last year and the temperature was in the 40s – not an enjoyable experience.

      If the weather is cold, at least you can keep on layering up. There’s a limit to what you can take off in the heat…

    • Edgar… I am so touched you missed my warblings 🙂 Truth is, I had a massively busy time before Christmas – I went off filming for a UK gameshow (all still hush hush) for a week, then went to Orlando with work for a week, and the writing sort of slipped by the wayside. I also took a rest from the newspaper articles over Christmas, as not much is going on in the garden – even I can’t pad out “it’s a bit cold” every week. I’ve been mulling over a couple of ideas for this year’s stories, but not yet got around to putting finger to keyboard, so to speak – but your comment may be just the push I needed. So yes, all is well over on this side of the earth… still cold, nothing’s growing yet, but spring is on the way.

      Thanks for caring 🙂
