Zero Degrees And Getting Colder

This morning over the garden fence: frosted crab apples and brilliant sunshine. The weather people tell us there will be more frost tonight and tomorrow (temps around –5 C), but slightly milder weather over the weekend.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying the frost-art around the garden, and especially the glistening spent flower heads of the Smoke Bush (Cotinus coggygria). Truly a tree for all seasons.

And then there were the spider installations on the garden shed window:

We also checked on the MacMoos this morning. They seemed in meditative mood, soaking up the sunshine.

Much Wenlock’s Church Green this morning

And finally before lunch there was a quick tramp to the allotment, the wheat field iron-hard, and hard on the feet too, even in boots.

  1. Definitely winter, Tish! Deep and crisp and even. Friends have been sending me pretty photos with a delicate topping of snow on the garden table and the cosy log burner.

    1. The landscape is truly lovely to look at, but it’s been v. cold today, with tonight being the coldest so far. We were v. glad of a log delivery for the wood burner. But hopefully some rising temps over the weekend.
