Winter Garden....part two


After lunch yesterday, Sophie and I took a look around the garden:


As she tends to do, Sophie leads the way.


Temperatures have been well below 0C (freezing point)
and thus the ice remains on these large boulders in the garden.



The low afternoon sun in the western sky creates wonderful shadows.


Sophie 'hiding' behind this Corkscrew Witch Hazel tree.

Must be Christmas!! lol
Having fun with frost on shed window....looks like ferns.


Peeping out....


One whole side of this Linden tree is a sheet of ice.


'Seed-head' from ornamental grass.

  4. Our snow is gone now, but it lasted about a week longer than usual. Please be careful walking, it looks very slippery.

    1. I love snow too Joanne. And yes, the shadows are everywhere.
      Our garden/yard/property is an acre. Amazing how big that seems when 'planting' a garden from scratch!!
