Almost like a fairy tale

The garden and surrounding countryside have suddenly been cloaked in ice crystals this week. Due to a third national lockdown our single track lane is free of cars and most people are keeping warm indoors by their house fires.

It is all really rather beautiful and looks as if an ice wand has been waved across the trees and put the whole garden to sleep. Here are my Six on Saturday for this week which try and capture the feeling of the moment.

Happy New Year everyone!

One: Heuchera with violas
Two: Himalayan Fairy Grass
Three: A winter rose bud
Four: Rose leaves
Five: Ornamental cabbages
Six: Sedum

  1. The ice crystals on the rose are incredible and so different to the other plants: long and spiky. It was obviously a good, hard frost and your photos have captured it wonderfully.
