January’s Last Photo

January’s last photo

Brrrr!

It’s been, as they say in northern England, ‘right parky’ for the past week or so, as these Queen Anne’s Lace seed heads testify.

Frosty Morning

So far at least our winter has been wet rather than cold, but there has been the odd frosty morning:

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fuzzy

The seed head of the variety of grass known as Queen Ann’s Lace is naturally fuzzy, but is rendered even more so after a heavy frost.

A Cold And Frosty Morning

Appropriately enough for the time of year (in the northern hemisphere, at any rate), Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge theme this week is ‘cold’.

After the temperature dips overnight in the absence of any cloud cover, the bay leaves on our laurel bushes are tipped with frost.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Place

As Frank himself notes, after last week’s theme of ‘Time’ the only logical choice for this week is ‘Place’. Accordingly, he invites us to share an image of a favourite place (or places).

Well, they do say there’s no place like home, and I doubt that I’ll be the only one putting up a picture of their own place in response to this challenge.

No apologies though, because I don’t think that this is the worst view out of a back door you could ever find. We have two fields on the other side of that wall and these frost-laden trees form part of the boundary between them.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Season

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, as set by Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo!, is ‘Season’ and, as he points out, that can mean more than one thing.

In terms of weather, a sure sign of the changing of the seasons is the first frost of the year – it might still officially be autumn but there can no longer be any doubt that winter is on its way.

We had our first frost of the year a good few weeks ago, which produced some interesting, almost abstract, images in our herb bed – so there’s the other meaning of ‘season’.
