The First Snow

Thursday, November 25th 2010

Foxglove has been transformed by the first snows of winter.

Frozen lake and hide

This morning the lake was almost frozen over and snow covered everything in a soft, white blanket.

Rosehips covered in snow

Clive came to fill all the bird feeders for us and the birds were almost waiting for him to do it!  A Robin landed at his feet to pick up the dropped seed.

Colours other than white shone out like jewels.  The last yellow leaves on the Silver Birch, the orange needles on the Larch and these rosehips, looking like rubies against the muted background.
