Plot white!

By the time I went for a walk to the plot earlier this morning it had stopped snowing but there were at least several inches underfoot. I really can’t remember the last time I’ve seen this much snow here!

Plot white!

I refilled the bird feeders and once I’d found the pond I did that as well!

The pond!

I’ve now got a snow rosemary in the stone feature,

and a proper snow log.

Not surprisingly there was no sign, or sound, of any birds evenΒ  in the trees at the edge of the allotments.

However I did see two foxes but unfortunately they were over there going away from me.

It was then time to head home into the warm for tea and biscuits. Looking out the window it’s getting very grey and snowing again!

    Gorgeous photographs! I took quite a few pictures as I trudged out this morning ^_^ Will post them up once I get out of the office. It’s absolutely freezing her in Yorkshire, but I have to say, I think you guys got more snow than us πŸ™‚ It’s oh so beautiful though!

  2. VP says:

    I love your snow rosemary πŸ™‚

    We’ve not got so much of it here, but it’s still got me all excited – I want a snowman!

  3. Flighty says:

    Sinta thanks! I can’t take photos with my gloves on so I didn’t take many!
    I’m surprised at how much there is here, and it’s still snowing! xx

  4. Flighty says:

    VP it’s good isn’t it!
    There’s plenty here, and more than enough for a snowman, so help yourself! xx

    Lets have Xmas again before its all gone!

  6. Nice pic’s Flighty. Nature sure knows how to put on a show.

    A winter wonderland, Flighty! I love all that shivery cold white stuff in the trees (spoken by someone sitting on this side of a computer screen). And as for photos…. wouldn’t it be nice to have a remote for the camera in your pocket?

  8. Liv says:

    Unbelievable! My mum says she hasn’t seen that much snow over there since I was born.

    Is it very damp snow? The rosemary looks like a white cactus!

  9. Flighty says:

    Lawrence thanks for stopping by! That sounds like a good idea!

  10. Flighty says:

    Assortedpixels thanks! It sure does.

  11. Flighty says:

    Nikki it certainly was early this morning! I love it sitting here typing this.
    That would have been ideal today! xx

  12. Flighty says:

    Liv yes indeed! She’s probably right as I don’t remember when I last saw this much snow here.
    Damp enough for someone to make a big snowman out the back! xx

  13. Snow! It’s beautiful. Maybe the foxes will come back and pose for you another day πŸ™‚

  14. daffy says:

    It looks very pretty but I’m pleased to see the back of it. Forget all of your quaint olde England Christmas cards with English snow scenes! We don’t do snow! hehe.
    You have captured it’s beauty though, no doubt.
    I wonder how many fox footprints prints you found? xx

  15. Flighty says:

    Beginninghere lots of it! It is to look at but not so nice when it turns icy or slushy. I hope that they will! xx

  16. fraggle says:

    The children are enjoying the extra days off school and building a snowman.
    It does look very beautiful,we very rarely have snow here just the odd flutter but we have about 3 inches.xx

  17. Flighty says:

    Daffy much as you say we don’t do snow I think that we have to make the best of it when it is around! Either that or hibernate!
    Thanks. I looked for wildlife prints but saw none so I guess that they’d all stayed at home. xx

  18. Flighty says:

    Fraggle lucky them, and that sounds like fun.
    It certainly does, and like you we don’t usually see much if any here. xx

  19. Glo says:

    Whoa! Lovely that you went out for a walk to take these special snowy photos ~ especially with your chilly fingerends having to hold the camera! I love the picture of the pond! Not much one can do about the weather other than enjoy it πŸ™‚ Tea and biscuit weather for sure!

  20. Flighty says:

    Glo I enjoyed the walk but taking photos without gloves in that weather is another matter!
    The pond was like a hidden water hole.
    That’s true if we’re able to! For sure! xx

  21. Lois Wakeman says:

    Very artistic! It’s just started here in earnest again – shame its getting dark, so I can’t see all the trees with their tracery of white.

    (Saw lots of fox tracks myself in the fields this a.m.)

  22. Flighty says:

    Lois hello and thanks! It’s been starting to melt here in the sunshine thankfully.
    Trees like that look really good. How about this one

    It’s even better when the foxes are seen! xx

  23. Lois Wakeman says:

    Lovely photo – I must bookmark that site.

  24. Flighty says:

    Lois it’s well worth doing that as NiC takes superb photos! xx

  25. Liv says:

    Actually, someone said 18 years ago, ‘course then we weren’t living there to see it.
    xx

  26. Flighty says:

    Liv if it was that long ago then little wonder that I don’t remember! xx

  27. Chippy says:

    Had a few inches of snow up here but it was gone in a day or so, nothing near what the forecast said we would get….

  28. Flighty says:

    Chippy it seems like we had it here for a change. Fingers crossed that’s all we’ll see this year!
