A Frosty Morning


  I looked outside my window first thing and saw we had a fairly hard frost so off I went to take photos . Got my coat , boots  fingerless gloves so I can work my camera better and yes still in my jammies  I know but they are fleece and soo warm lol ! So out I go .

                     It was still dusk and the sun hadn’t come up yet so the light was that blueish dark colour .

Then as I was taking more photos and  searching  I then looked up and this is what I saw of the sun rise !

It is amazing how the cold air changes the lighting of the sun as it rises  and how the colours take in the sky ! It was soo pretty !

                                         I then got back to looking for more frosty things to photography !

I just love the crystals that form on everything especially during a hard frost  and they form even more so !

                                    Looks like snow flakes but it is frost crystals , fascinating I find it to be  !

Waiting to go for our walk  so I then went in to get dressed  finish my cuppa tea I made   then  Miggs and I went for a walk ! It was nice peaceful out there . The sun went in and it got cloudy but that was ok we went for our walk anyways . When we got back I thought well it is cold now and the snows have already started here and there so I might as well bite the bullet and put up my winter garden flag !

                    I have it attached to our Birch tree . Well   I went in  at that point  and it started to snow .

          I guess me putting up my winter flag was a sign to mother nature . Miggs was out on yard patrol as it was snowing keeping the birdies safe as they feast at the feeders from any feral cats lurking about looking for breakfast !

It is an off again on again  kind of day weather wise , cloud , snowy with sun patches .  Guess winter really has arrived now . 

                                                                             Until next time !

Our First Dusting Of Snow


The day started out cloudy and mild then it started to snow tiny snow flakes at first then  big snow flakes . Miggs and I went for a nice walk  in it and it was quiet in the valley as the snow fell , so peaceful and pretty ! When we got home from our walk it wasn’t so peaceful as the birdies were chatting up a storm and feasting at the feeders like mad . I took  a few photos of the snow  as I do every year  to keep some what of a journal of each season and it’s changes .  Why this time last year we were very deep in snow and very cold .

You can see  way in the back to the top right of this garden pic I still have English daisies growing , they have been growing and blooming since the beginning of the summer  I take it they like the hot and cold temps .

Miggs loves it as you can see here . Papa was outside in his shed moving about the tractors  the snow blower and digging out the pet safe salts , just getting things prepared for the snowy season that will be here even more so soon  .

  I always find the first snow fall or two  soo pretty and it  really changes the look of the land  even if it melts in a few hours  like it already has !


                                                                         Until next time .
