Winter winds and snows

Friendship buds and blossoms

Like a summer in full dress

Friendship brings a harvest

Of joy and happiness,

Friendship is sustaining

Through winter winds and snows,

Friendship can’t be hoarded

By being shared it grows.

This was the plot this morning after several inches of snow overnight. There were plenty of fox tracks to be seen but otherwise it all looked rather bleak.

  1. What a very apt verse – lovely – you are right it is a bit bleak today – the sun came out for a bit then disappeared again leaving fog behind – got a feeling it is going to be with us for a while longer. Had a precarious journey this morning to feed the sheep the snow plough had been through and it was very icey beneath the snow that they had moved. Oh well – it is all part of life’s rich pattern I suppose. p.s. Love your new header – dreams of a summer to come.

      Elaine thanks. The main roads are okay here but, as usual, not the pavements. I’m thankful that I don’t have to venture out most days when it’s like this.
      I found this new header whilst sorting through last year’s plot photos. xx

    It does look a little bleak there. We had lots of snow yesterday but it’s a lovely bright sunny day today, I’m hoping that it melts the snow quickly.

    Lovely verse 🙂
    Am I the only one who doesn’t think snow looks bleak?
    I love the soft white carpet and the hush that seems to accompany it… then someone plods through it all in her big wellies 😉

    • Flighty says:

      Mo thanks! I really meant that the allotments rather than the snow looked bleak. I can appreciate that but it soon turns very grey and slushy here. xx

  4. The contrast of your sunflower photo to the view from my window made me smile! It’s certainly putting a summery spin on things. I’m with Mo on the snow front, lovely to look at, everything all clean and fresh – then the kids come through with their wellies and snowball fights. I love that they’re outside having fun but gosh what a mess afterwards! I guess your fox will be getting hungry, hope your robin stays safely out of reach! xx

      Caro they’re Jerusalem artichoke flowers, which are a kind of sunflower! Same here as it all looked very pretty at 6am but by mid morning a right mess.
      The residents foxes are well looked after and certainly don’t go hungry so I’m sure that the robin is okay! xx

    Lovely verse, Flighty! And I love the new header photo on your blog – roll on Spring. And what a contrast it is to the snowy plot. Wonderful!

    Loving the new header, Flighty. Really cheerful, especially with the current weather. I do like how snow transforms a scene but I’m not a fan of the mess afterwards, when it gets all slushy and dirty. We had snow all day yesterday but it turned to rain last night so it’s all gone now. Hoping we won’t get any more.

    Lots of snow here in Montreal but it is looking quite lovely (away from the city streets). Saw a fox last weekend which buoyed my spirits. Hope you get to see the fellow who makes the tracks at the plot! 🙂

    • Flighty says:

      Doris that sounds like a proper winter wonderland! They’re always good to see aren’t they. I saw two a week or two back over on the far side of the allotments. xx

    Absolutely no snow at all here!!

    I think you just need a Christmas trinket here and there on that tree in the foreground and you have yourself a Christmas card — albeit in February!

  10. Flighty says:

    Nikki that’s a good idea! Thankfully the snow only lasted a couple of days but it has been bitterly cold, zero at best, since. xx

  11. Goodness, that is proper snow Flighty – we have a sprinkling again today, but it is already melting. I think allotments always tend to look bleak at this time of year, though there is a certain beauty even in that, all that potential to come. And in the mean time there is your new banner to remind us of colour in store!

    • Flighty says:

      Janet it was several inches deep, and there was more last night so it still looks like that this morning. They do but I still enjoy walking round. Here’s to a really colourful year! xx

    The fresh clean snow blanket looks beautiful, while it stays that way! It began snowing here about an hour ago and it’s settling on the grass and flower beds, not yet on the hard surfaces as the weather has been mild for the past few days. The forecasters say we may, and emphasize “may” get the first measurable snow since November!
