Sunday Snow

A bit late on the updates but we had S N O W !
Normally I’m the first one out there with my camera chasing the deepest snow. Not. this. time.
Still trying to get back to ‘normal’ but at the same time having to go back to ‘normal’.

Made my first step out into the garden to chip away at the thick ice and the snow that had accumulated on the bird baths over the past few days. I could here the birds chirping in delight at having some fresh drinking/bathing water!

That’s all the news today, keep warm, keep safe and enjoy the day 🙂

Snowflakes are kisses from heaven

Beastly Virus Update

Z cat

*UPDATE*

Turns out it is Covid – after a PCR test confirmed it.
Just recovering now, not got any smell or taste which is a pain but hopefully that will return.

Keep warm and safe – Storm Arwen (UK) will be upon us soon!

For the past few days I have been wiped out with the Flu. It’s not Covid as I’ve had 3 negative LFT. I’m longing to have the energy to to get out and to be back at work.

I will be missing out on my Christmas fairs at the weekend but you can still go along and make a purchase as my cards will still be on sale.

Reflections

For the past few days I have been wiped out with the Flu. It’s not Covid as I’ve had 3 negative LFT. I’m longing to have the energy to to get out and to be back at work.

I missed out on two fairs/exhibitions that I was looking forward to at the weekend.

Getting Ready for June Showcase

Well this week looks like it’s going to be a lovely one (apart from today!) A few edits from the past 2 weeks of May, I have been super busy in the greenhouse and the garden. I’ve managed to take down a shed and to find lots of wood bees in a corner behind the […]

Sunday Sun Salutation

A bit of seed Yoga I thought I would show you a little time lapse of my sunflower slowly bending towards the sun from last year. This took over an hour for them to slowly turn to face the sun condensed into 20 seconds! Let me know if you would like to see more nature […]

January to May 2016-2021

Throughout the year at the beginning of each month I will created a short video of photographs from that month from around 2016-2021. I hope that you will enjoy watching them. If you have missed any up to May, then look no further as I have them here for you to watch!

The Weekend

Another busy day!

Today a bit of gardening. The cats are having a ball chasing leaves and exploring all the ‘new’ parts of the garden since I’ve cut back lots of plants!

A visit to the ever popular Living North exhibition had be drinking samples of rum, cocktails and wine at 11 o’clock in the morning! (Plus plenty of chocolate and biscuits).

The trees are looking stunning, All we needs is a huge gust of wind or a sharp front and most of the leaves will be on the floor.

More adventures tomorrow, a Textile exhibition and a Christmas Craft fair.

November fog

Today thick fog hung low over the fields and trees, reminding us that it is nearly the middle of November and that Winter will be soon here.

MIST OR FOG?

what makes one morning ‘misty’ and another ‘foggy.’

The difference is a simple matter of how far you can see through it.

If you can see more than 1,000 metres it’s called mist, but if it is thicker and the visibility drops below 1,000 metres it’s called fog.

Tidying the garden

As the nights are drawing in fast and the weather is getting colder & damper, my garden was in desperate need of a tidy up and leaves raking up. I love trees but I enjoy focusing on their beautiful leaves, with their textures and shapes, especially as their colours change into their Autumn foliage.

Bronzed leaves

Decomposing fruit and leaves – just look at the beautiful colours & textures!

Beautiful Sunday

Look at that view

Sunday morning views – how beautiful is this, with York Minster in the background? Lunch and a catch-up with a friend, in a very busy York on Sunday. I was wishing that I had brought my big camera into the city, never mind. Hopefully there will be a few more glorious days like this next weekend.

A touch of frost

Well, a bit of a shock to wake up to frost on Friday. A wake up call to the fact we are starting to go into colder months.

A touch of ice on fungi
J & Z cat enjoying the fire on a cold and noisy 5th November

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Dull November

Dull November brings the blast;

Then the leaves are whirling fast.
