This morning the radio weather commentary described our English temperatures as ‘polar’. It surely feels like it – and that’s inside the house. For despite the existence of central heating and the recent consumption of a good hot mug of coffee, I am wearing mittens as I type this.
And since it is far too cold to go outdoors I cunningly combined Jude’s ‘patterns challenge’ which asks us to look at the subject from different perspectives, and combined near and far subjects – snow on the bedroom window and next door’s garden ash tree – all in one shot. The abstracted result rather reflects my abstracted mindset at present.
Please visit Jude for lots of inspiring ways to look at your photo subjects.

What.a FABULOUS image. I love it….and worth being very cold for.:)….Janet
Thank you, Janet. Love your today’s water colour study.
“am wearing mittens as I type this.” I would have expected more typos Tish
Fingerless ones, Ian 🙂
How can you have fingerless mittens? Mits cover the mits. Fingerless gloves, ok.
Well these ones cover fingers but leave the actual typing ends free, so they’re probably neither gloves nor mittens.
Ah, hybrid vigour
This is an awesome photo
Wow, that is an excellent view Tish.
Thanks, Ruth 🙂
This is a fabulous pattern Tish. I know what you mean about frigid weather, we have had all sorts thrown at us except snow. And now storm Dennis threatening us at the weekend! Whatever next? A plague of locusts?
Whatever you do, don’t mention the locusts, Jude. They’ve been having those in Kenya – 30 mile long 20 mile wide swarms.
While we haven’t had a very cold winter we have had more than enough rain and more coming. Come Spring it will all be a memory. Good photo by the way.
Yep, the ongoing wetness has been the main bugbear. And we have more sleet and rain and wind here this week; but maybe some sun next week. The one daffodil already flowering in the garden has been mightily battered. It came out too soon.
Yes…my daffs are flat too.
Wonderful image, Tish. It certainly shows how very cold it is there. 😯
A perishing wind is the main problem at the moment. Three vests, a sweater, fleecy pants, scarf, woolly hat, and a padded parka couldn’t keep it at bay when I finally steeled myself to pop up to the allotment. Brrrr and double brrrrr.
Terrific photo, but we await your return to your allotment where hopefully there wasn’t too much damage, and to your tours of the English countryside. Stay warm.
I’ve just been to give the allotment the once over after the storm. And track down blown away compost bin lids, this despite being weighted with bricks. Otherwise all AOK. Still some veg up there despite the wind and deluge, but yes, I’m looking forward to spring – seed packets at the ready…
Yeeikes! Great patterns
Thanks, Sue. More sleet tomorrow it seems.
And cold knees!
It is a beautiful image Tish, but it does sound like your weather is particularly dire. I hope your spring arrives soon. We’re apparently officially in drought now — though the cracks in the ground have been telling me that for a while.
You may get some of our torrential rain soon Su ☔️
Wishing you some soothing rain.
Inspiration strikes at the funniest times, Tish. Not funny at all! But beautiful 🙂 🙂
Thank you, Jo.
That is an inspirational and inspired photo to interpret Jude’s challenge. A beautiful abstract pattern Tish. But gives me the shivers thinking of your weather. The world is going crazy
Shivery it is, Pauline, and only last week we thought spring was in the air.
A remarkable capture, Tish! Love the pattern. 🙂
Thank you, Amy.
What a cool photo!
Cheers, M.B. You are right about the ‘cool’ 🙂 🙂
Haha! I bet!!
Fabulous . . . . hope you are warmer now
Still got that pesky wind, though thankfully with sunshine attached 🙂
Yay to sunshine, and fingers crossed wind blows itself out soon
Thank you, Agnes.
