In common with the rest of the UK, we had lots of snow last week and my 3 sons were off school – they are due to go back tomorrow and I think we are all ready for that to happen! It snowed heavily last Tuesday night, and this was the scene on Wednesday morning. I wouldn’t normally stand in the middle of that road to take a photo but as it is the top of a steep hill, only 4 wheel drive vehicles were attempting to get up it. I love the quiet and the clean, crisp landscape.
And the wintry trees covered with snow.
I fulfilled January’s reed photos that day too. Here they are – very dry and dead looking.
Crisp, brown and papery….
On the way back I didn’t see many snowmen, but I did see this enormous snowball! That is a rubbish bin at the side.
After several very cold, icy nights, the temperature has risen and the snow has got very soft and slushy again. I don’t know how much longer it’ll last but it has been fun for a while. Meanwhile, this afternoon I finally rinsed out some of the fabric I screenprinted and painted with natural dyes this time last year so hopefully in the next post there will actually be some textile content!
