SOME SNOW PICS - Just for a change


Some pictures of the garden taken today on 7h January, our first snowfall of the winter, although not very much. Ground is frozen solid, tried on a couple of occasions to get a spade into it, but no go. Seems to be freezing deeper and deeper as the days go by, which is very unfortunate for me, got an awful lot of work to get though before the start of the summer.

Lovely pics Bluespruce.I think I love the colours of grasses more in the winter than summer,as they stand out so well...your garden is very well planned,and nice for you to have such a lovely view of it.....

Never ever thought I'd get Alan & Granville on board with my type of thanks guys, it's appreciated :0)
Early morning sunlight is almost essential in an attempt to try and get half decent photos. Did a virtual re-run this afternoon, and scrapped the lot, nearly every single photo was poor.
Jane, this Xmas and new year period was the time I set aside away from my proper job, to carry out the main alterations for this year, so unfortunately this weather is just going to put me all behind :0(
Thanks again for your comments everyone :0)

We love it Bluespruce. Its the way you have skilfully combined the colours, textures and the lovely architectural interest, and you have an 'all seasons' garden. We think there needs to be far more interest given to these plants.
Congratulations and well done, the garden is stunning.
As you probably know Alan is a professional photographer, and he was very impressed with your photos on this blog and he commented on the lovely lighting as well.
All best wishes,
Grenville and Alan.

The weeping conifer in pic 3 Blue.....which type is that please? Yes I agree about early morning sunlight, plants and flowers look great back-lit...:o) Sorry to hear your plans are going awry......we haven't had a winter like this in such a long time....hopefully it'll kill off lots of garden bugs, never mind human ones.....X
