Wordless Wednesday – The garden blanketed in snow

A couple of inches of snow fell overnight on Sunday

Then the cold deepened (-8°C)

The snow has stuck around for a few days now. I don’t think that has happened here in years!

A couple of subsequent hoar frosts have added ice crystal to ice crystal, painting the trees and shrubs even whiter.

There’s also been the inevitable snowmen turning up. Obviously mine is the short one on the right and was made at 7am when I was worried that the snow would melt immediately, like it usually does. That’s my excuse anyway!  🤣

    What absolutely gorgeous photos. The snow on the berries (or crabapples) is especially appealing.

    We had a Christmas Eve snow in 2004 that allowed for snowman building — and a few snow angels, too. I’ll never forget a Norwegian woman, here to work at NASA for a few months, running through the snow, barefooted in her nightgown at midnight, telling everyone within earshot, “This like home! Like real home!”

    Your garden looks so beautiful in the snow! The berries are really pretty… or are they crabapples? Magic!

    Beautiful frosted garden, the best kind of Christmas surprise to get one in the holiday mood!

    Love pictures, Allison – I love the look of fresh and unadulterated snow, especially when one doesn’t have to travel anywhere in it. Well done for the enthusiastic snowman, especially as 7.00 am is still very much in the dark!!
