Some forecasters are telling us to look out, bad weather is on the way, and especially come UK election day on the 12th December. I’m hoping they’ll be wrong. Meanwhile, and in response to Tina’s cold theme @Lens-Artists, here are views around Wenlock taken in early December two years ago. It had its scenic moments, but caught us out too. We’ve grown rather used to mild, wet winters. The header photo was taken in a bit of blizzard, as was the next photo on the Linden Walk.
But there were ‘Christmas Card’ vistas too – and especially out in the Wenlock Priory parkland:
And all was very quiet around the town:
And along the old railway line:

Christmas card vistas for sure Tish. Imho it’s the only time snow is welcomed! Beautiful examples of snowy cold
Thank you, Tina.
AS Tina says, gorgeous photos. Makes me feel like wrapping up warm though 🙂
It was cold, and so I hope it stays away for the election. Tho could do with this rain going away too. Are you being deluged in your neck of the woods?
We have had an awful lot of rain. A bit of sun the last few days though. Dry for a while would be nice. 🙂
Dry would be good!
It would indeed. We can but hope.
I do love looking at the snow, but am pretty happy we don’t get it very often!
It was stunning while it lasted, but I agree, now and then is soon enough.
Great photos and hope you don’t have bad weather
Thanks, Mak. At the mo’ we are wading around the place in mud and the rain goes on and on. But yes, no snow would be good.
We have been having quite a lot of rain lately, too. It’s crazy. At least we don’t have the problem of snow
Hm. The weather is definitely in a confusion.
The sheep photo is fab, when the snow is fresh and white and the sky blue. Makes a mess when it thaws though.
It was a very cross sheep too. I think the lunch delivery was late, either that or it was expressing grave displeasure at the snow.
Thank you, Kendall.
Your photos are all lovely Tish; especially the sheep and the people on Linden Walk.
Fingers crossed the weather improves for the 12th and turnout is high.
Lovely shots, at first glance i thought that sheep was a Polar Bear! 😁
These are absolutely beautiful, Tish! I especially like that second one, but I love them all.
It was your hope for some snow that made me think of posting them 🙂
My position is that if we’re going to have winter, we should have snow to make it beautiful. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
It’s a good story 🙂
Wow those are gorgeous pics.
Thanks, MB 🙂
oh you have some nice gems in the archives = hope this December is not too harsh – and of the photos her e- my fav is that ending one – the framing. the hanging – and the glisten to the left
Thanks, Yvette. That last pic does have a bit of winter magic, doesn’t it.
Ah, you start out totally freeezzzzing, Tish, but finish in absolute wintery bliss! love them all, but favorites are the sheep and the Linden walk.
Glad you enjoyed this pics, Ann-Christine.

Somehow 30 degrees , cold beers and flip flops don’t quite have the same ambiance.
Actually, we’re going to need waders here if the rain doesn’t stop. I am consequently completely ignoring your 30 degrees, cold beers and flipflops and thinking only of cocoa and woolly vests 😉
I’m not looking forward to dragging the Xmas tree from its place by the pool up to the stoep, especially in this heat.
‘Tis a perishing mission every year.
Oh, the stress of it all.
Oh pfphff. You just had to rub it in, and now I’m thinking of a ‘christmas tree’ we had in steamy Mombasa, standing outside the beach house door, bedecked with tinsel and sea shore trawlings and looking quite barmy. Ah, happy dreaming!
See! You’ve been-there-done-that. so don’t pfphff at moi, Ms T.
Go and polish your wellies or something.
Oh all right. You got me, Ark. Consider yourself de-pfphffed. Anyway, it’s stopped raining now. Time to squelch over the field. before it goes dark. Am currently mulching the strawberry bed with scavenged chippings, one bag at a time.
Lovely photos Tish. Reminds me of the occasional snowy winters we get in Vancouver – it gets so quiet.
Yes that quietness. It’s perhaps the best part of it. Thanks, Alison.
You are always welcome
Where are you chatting from ?
Excellent photos. Just beautiful.
Thank you, John.
Thre are some lively photos hre. Th last one is stunning
so very beautiful when going out is an option, and there is no rush to get anywhere
I remember these beautiful photographs from 2017. The header image is quite extraordinary. From this image I feel and experience so much. Very powerful. Janet
It’s good to know that the first photo struck a chord with you, Janet. There’s a lot going on there somehow – something that the camera happened to capture. All the more interesting since there was scarcely much daylight when I took it.
Amazing photos, Trish. The Header image is totally stunning – and the following photos are amazing too. Thank you so much for sharing your work with us. E 🙂
Thank you for following, Emma.
Incredibly beautiful snow images, Tish! They are beautiful Christmas cards.
