Hearts in Snow

  We made a very cold visit to the garden yesterday for a few leeks but not much else! The first thing we spied was an icy pile of chipped bark which we are pleased to have.

 The pond was iced over.

It is so funny to see the garden like this .... not conducive to doing a great deal except view the icy scenes.
A very interesting phenomenon which Steve noticed as he crunched up the big path. Ice crystals had pushed chipped bark up into peaks making a lovely sound as we walked.


So sorry to see the helichrysum well and truly finished. I did wonder if it might get through the winter.


Back home for lovely tomato soup made from our frozen summer glut, noticing bellis daisies and primroses pushing through the snow in the sunshine.

After a good rest we stacked the last of the logs as the sunshine moved round to the logstore.

Is there anything more satisfying than a logstore full up.

We felt we had earned our teabreak and peanut butter cookies topped with chocolate (what diet!!)

Snow is still hanging around.

I spent the rest of the afternoon making mini bunting for the fairy cave and fairy garden. It was most satisfying as I used all my scrap fabric in fine floral patterns.

Our valentine flowers are just opening.

Happy Valentines Day everyone.


  1. Lovely photos. I do love the scrunch of snow/ice underfoot, but I’m quite ready for Spring now ☺️

  2. Well you might feel its on its way next week when temperatures go into double figures.
