9 Jan



Jack Frost came in the night.



Leaving crunchy grass under foot.



Skeletal plants rigid and white.



Polytunnel plastic now opaque.



While in the pond all is still…as far as our eye can see anyway.

    I did not realise it was so frosty that day till I went down to check for an egg. One day windy,next day frost!! We will survive and see growth soon 🙂

      The Rhubarb s already showing buds Cath. So looking forward to getting out there in the garden again.

      I was surprised too! I’m not a big fan of frost, with the possible exception of seeing it (like snow) from inside a warm house, and, okay, I admit that I like the crunchy-crunch sound when I’m walking on slightly frosted-over grass (kinda similar to how I love walking on crunchy autumn leaves). 🙂

    So far we have only rain and lots and lots of mud! But I am sure the frost and snow are on their way:( But your photos do make it look lovely.

    Your photos are wonderful, Bridget. Winter doesn’t seem so severe while looking at it via your eye and camera. More like…magical. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      Thanks June! After living in Arigna through the crazy Winters of 2009 and 2010 this sort of weather does’nt seem harsh at all.

        I agree. Compared to those two winters, this is a lovely stroll in the park…or a lovely stroll near Flynn’s (and yours and Andy’s) cottage, slightly frosty and misty though it might be. 🙂

    I love to see frost on early morning plants – I also have the feeling that any cold weather is helping to kill off any nasties in the garden! I thought we might have some frost here as the last two nights have been very clear but so far, so mild. Hope it doesn’t get any worse than this for you …. and wish you a belated but very happy new year and all the best for the year ahead!
