One of my favourite discoveries on moving to the UK was the existence of Hoar's Frosts. I suddenly realised why Christmas cards had glitter on the snow and trees! A few quick ones from today...
Some colour ones...
And a couple in black and white...
Very quick post of yesterday's variety of weather! Gorgeous clouds over towards the Langdales and beyond, definitely worth getting out in the cold for. There were also some lovely spring-like touches around Grasmere and Loughrigg Tarn, especially around the Wordsworth's graves. Always pass by for a quick salute to the old Laureate but it's especially fitting when there are daffodils on his grave.
I snatched a couple of minutes in the last few sunny mornings to photograph some of our current flora! The Snowdrops and Cyclamen are home-grown, the Gypsophila is sadly not. All equally lovely though - long may these clear, crisp pre-spring days continue. Well... if spring and summer want to hurry up then I wouldn't be complaining!
