Apologies for the swift change in temperatures after yesterday’s balmy temperatures on the Zambezi. Here in Wenlock we have been suffering frigid twirls and swirls of Polar Vortex: snow, sleet, wind, frost and in between, torrential rain. But we’ve had some sun too with china blue skies. Here’s the month’s round-up:
Snowy landscapes: Windmill Hill (including the above with this mysterious snow tree), Linden Walk and Linden Field, over the garden fence…
Birds and beasties…
Frost art including some very fancy ice works created by my allotment water butt…
And the first signs of spring…

Beautiful – especially the frosty apples!
Don’t plump winter birds bring hope and cheer 😉
Happy Feb to you too, Emma. I’m rather wishing I could plump myself up like a robin (i.e. with feathers not extra kilos!)
Amazing, yes – if only!!
Pretty snow photos, especially the path through the woods, and I love the frosted leaves and patterns on your water butt ice 🙂
I was so impressed by my water butt yesterday. I’ve seen anything quite like it.
Think of all of that nitrogen going into the ground .
My thoughts often wend in that kind of direction, Beverly.
Beautiful photos! Happy February!
Happy Feb to you too 🙂
Thank you, Janet.
It looks pretty cold….but you’ve given us some great images, Tish!
Thanks, Sue. It is still v. cold though most of the snow has gone.
Fog now and rather warm!
All change, then!
Looks like you’ve had a bit of everything. I captured a great tree shadow too, aren’t they wonderful?
A whole new fad – finding snow trees!
Gorgeous gallery of images Tish. I so love the first one, and the ice art. Lovely to see signs of spring too.
Thanks, Su. And this morning we actually seem to have spring!
Wonderful. I hope it’s here to stay.
The weather people say not. More cold imminent.
Brrrr but beautiful Tish. That ice art is stunning, especially like the tree rings and hurray for the signs of spring.
To me, these are lovely ❤
I’m sure there must be a more … er … ladylike word choice than … ” … my water butt” ?
Rain barrel, perhaps?
Rain barrel – I would never have thought of that, Ark 🙂
Well, now you can put ”my water butt” behind you!
There’s no answer to that!
Fantastic shots but your photos are as close as I want to get to snow!
Thank you, Gilly. Snow is mostly best in pix.
You have a red and white theme going there, Tish. I always love the view through the crab apples to the field beyond. I hope you get weather to your liking in Feb.
Thank you, Tracy. Am reciprocating the good weather wishes, and hope you have a bit of productive growing season left. I’ve been thinking that you might try Chinese greens, mustards, mizuna etc which are very quick growers. They keep going through the winter in my polytunnel.
I planning to buy some seeds, Tish, and give it a go before the end of the season.
oh this is glorious, perfect season captures. Loving that first one in particular
