The garden has its hat on – a hat of snow.
Plants are sporting their new white headgear.
All sculptures and ornaments are wearing their ermine hats and coats.
The insects are warm in their homes, hopefully hibernating safely, but we will not know until the spring. Each night the little Jenny Wrens queue up to roost in their wicker basket.

Brrr. We are shedding the effects of a six inch snow in my end of VA, and I am already tired of the white stuff. I am ready to plow and plant!
We went up to our allotment plot today and had a nice wander around the site. No chance of any work for quite a while. The snow is on top of frozen flooded ground. Horrible.
Love it! Nothing transforms a garden quite so much as snow 🙂
Our snow started melting yesterday but returned overnight.
So lovely that you have wrens. I like the seed pods with snow hats and you have some fun ornaments in your garden.
Wrens are wonderful little chaps. We get close up views of them as they are quite confident now. Their markings are so beautiful.
Lovely pictures – popped in via The Scottish Country Garden – I hope your insects are enjoying their cosy warm homes 🙂
You are most welcome. Glad you enjoyed my blog. Our insects and bees usually survive whatever the winter throws at us. They then do all our pest control and pollination for us. Since we began this garden 10 years ago we have had no pests left for us to deal with apart from molluscs.
You and your camera are a good combination for your readers. Beautiful photos. We have white everywhere and are anticipating two more storms this week.
Thanks for your kind comment. We have had another fall overnight so all yesterday’s thawing has been undone.
It’s nice the way snow calls attention to new ways of seeing. Nice images!
Absolutely right – it encourages you to look at things you have begun to take for granted.
Gorgeous pictures, I hope you’re staying warm!
Yes we warm ourselves with a roaring log fire. Great!
I love your garden, so full of interesting things as well as the growing ones and all made so lovely by the addition of some snow. We only had a dusting but I did get a few photos before it all melted away – in just a few hours! 🙂
Many thanks for your kind comments.
Love your garden hats… isn’t snow magical?! Love the transformation it brings to the landscape.
Love to look at it for a while but after a week or so I want it to go away. I need green!
