A Second Week of Snow

Winter jasmine outside the kitchen window is the only spot of colour in the garden right now.


 The first snow of this winter fell last Monday, never thawed away and over the weekend more was added to it.

The bird table is suddenly busy with sparrows, blackbirds, robins, blue-, coal- and longtailed tits and more unusual visitors - redwings and fieldfares - in trees and bushes

 the vegetable patch is hidden...

...and the greenhouse almost is!

 the old play house looks like a cabin in the forest
 and plantpots have acquired strange new shapes
We're now watching the weather forecasts and wondering how much longer this will last.....
