Did you have a lovely weekend? We did. And we had a visitor, isn't he gorgeous?
We had several visitors actually. Hubby decided we should be looking after the birds since they'll be finding it difficult to find food so, after a quick visit to B&Q, the garden could now qualify for "Winter Watch".
Of course all this delicious food suddenly appearing in the garden could well be the reason why our lovely visitor arrived so timely, but he is a regular to our patch and therefore can only assume he was passing through and got lucky! The birds, by the way, were practically queuing up for nosh before we'd even finished hanging the feeders up.
This morning is gorgeous. Not sunny, but I think I'm finally getting used to the cold. It's the ice I can't stand. We went to Notting Hill for lunch and a bit of shopping yesterday. Leaving home (in South East London) we reminded the children to tread carefully on the pavements which are still covered with snow and ice. Driving north we went through Clapham which was pretty much the same but once we reached Chelsea - no snow, no ice. Whatsoever. Can you believe that?
So having dropped the children off at their schools this morning I decided to do pretty much the same walk I made back in November when I did this post and took some photos to show how the same views look so very different in the snow. Just a nice reminder for myself and I hope you like them too.
Perhaps you should be sitting comfortably, there are a few to come ..
Most of the pond is iced over still
This is a fabulous sight when the wisteria takes over, but I still like it now
These next two shots were very different back in November ..
Signs of life to come ...
I think I'm done with the snow shots now, I've got the calling for crafting ...
Here's hoping you have a lovely week and don't forget to feed the birds x
