The garden this morning was frosty. I hung the washing on the airer above the bath.
Christmas cards continue to arrive, but I still haven’t sent any.
No, instead I spent some time in the garden with Not Cat. I took some pictures too. Frost makes the most ordinary
I had to go to work at lunchtime. I was early, and took this picture, where a blue sky and reflection makes an ordinary building extraordinary.
By the time I finished work, it was dark. I walked near St Paul’s. Always extraordinary.
I love frosty mornings…..when the sun comes up everything truly looks diamond-encrusted. The large rolling lawns in our community are so pretty until the sun warms things up enough that the diamonds disappear. I particularly like your photo of St. Paul’s with your “snow” falling across it !
Yes, it makes everything sparkle. I am less keen at the marina as it can also make things slippery.
The frost makes the plants look like one of my favourite garden plants: Stachys Lanata, which is also known as lambs ears because the leaves are felted and downy.
It looks like it was a good day otherwise.
I’ve managed with my photo merge. Do you want me to post it or do you want to be surprised (possibly sometime after Christmas at this rate)?
It has been a stunningly beautiful day. The light was wonderful. A bit chilly though. Certainly not a day to go out without gloves.
I am quite happy for an after Christmas card! I still haven’t written any.
OK, I shall post the before and after shots on my blog after the cards have been posted and are likely to have arrived.
Of course, the benefit of having them printed is that I don’t actually have to write them myself 😀
Oh I don’t want to put you to extra trouble. Posting online will be fine. Sorry, I misunderstood.
Lovely collection here Isobel, St Pauls is just brilliant, you’ve captured it beautifully. I can’t click the like button from my phone, so I’ll do that tomorrow. By the way, I reckon it would make a lovely Christmas card, Sophie will help here 🙂
It is a bit rough and ready, but I like it too. I have enough cards for this year, but I shall call on Sophie’s know-how if I need more in 2012. 😉
Your capture of St. Paul’s is very pretty Isobel. It looks much like our Capitol Building in MissouREE.
Love the shots of the frost-covered geraniums. Cold weather has its hazards, but it leads to some great photos.
Are you Steve from Outward Hounds?
If so, I am going to have to nominate you for a blog award. I loved what I found yesterday.
If not, my apologies. I’ll check you out. 🙂
The frost shots are amazing 🙂
I haven’t done my cards either yet – maybe later. But you mustn’t miss the light, Isobel. Your pics made me wish I was still in London. It was bliss last Saturday – overcast on Sunday but sounds like bliss again today! 😉
Next time you come, let me know. I am quite cautious about meeting fellow bloggers, but perhaps we could stare across a crowded room. Or street.
I love the frost on the clover. So delicate!
