Snowy Plants and Places

Snow forms an extra layer on a variegated leaf

The first made me smile because the snow is adding an extra layer of variegation to the reddish and cream edges of these green leaves. 

Ice forms in a cascade of water

I had a little scramble to get down to the ice. The array of forms was quite a surprise. One bit reminded me of candles formed with two on a string; another of a bird’s nest. There were fingers of ice, ice horns, giant pearls and ice slugs. I dare not go closer as I didn’t fancy the idea of falling in and walking home with icicles forming in similar fashion on me.

In contrast, this flower had an I never expected it to be this way look that resonates at the moment.

But I’m leaving you with a glimpse inside a heavily accessorised, cobbled back yard. It’s interesting how the snow has made patterns here, as if wanting to join in with the fun.
