Brrrr .........

Not from the garden but just thought I'd share some frosty photos taken during a walk on Thursday.




Can you imagine the temperature of the water for this hardy little soul?

Can you guess who this is?

    1. It is pretty, Anna just wish it wasn't quite so cold - looking out for a hat/bonnet with ear flaps

    2. funny...grandmother, from England, always called what you put on your head a bonnet. Sometimes I still do say that word. In fact got me one of those bonnets with the ear flaps and gosh darn good they are! specially for walking the dog..wind off the sea..a good thing!!

  2. I rather like a walk when it is frosty. It is even better when it has snowed.

    1. I don't mind snow if I haven't anywhere that I have to drive to awpol - well maybe just for a little while.

  3. While I don't really envy your cold it might make you fell better to know the temperature hit 39.5C here on Thursday and that's before we'd even got to summer. A little much for Spring in my book...

    1. Do you know Liz, I think I'd rather be freezing cold than suffering nearly 40C. I'm not a hot weather person - just as well considering!

  4. I thought Swans were supposed to be graceful and elegant - not flashing their bottoms in front of the cameras of passers-by! Great photo though.

    The patterns in the ice-crystals are fascinating. I remember seeing once a sequence of time-lapse photographs showing them forming, which was really wierd.

    1. Like all graceful things - fine the bit you can usually see - paddling frantically the bit you can't see. The pair where one was trying to grab the other by the neck weren't very graceful either.

  5. Great photos of the duck having a splash around. I'd guess it's a swan, knowing the place you took your walk, and the size of those webbed feet.

    1. I got loads of the duck splashing, Jo - yes it's a swan

  6. Wow you can really see the ice crystals in the close ups - and can someone tell that swan that it is supposed to be elegant.

    1. I don't think it has read the swan etiquette manual, Elaine

  7. Swan's can get very competitive when they are hungry! Nice frosty photos - I was waiting for a sunset...

    1. The sunset was used on Martyn's blog, Mal

  8. Oh no! A grocer's apostrophe!

    The family of swans on our pond do a great job of keeping an ice free patch for all the water birds. Mind you I don't think any of them like being squeezed into an ever diminishing pool.

    1. Wow you must have a large garden, Mal. Grocers are too well paid. :D

  9. Again I am amazed at your photography skills Sue. Love the duck action shot. And I really wonder what that Swan was up to!!

    1. It's a case of being in the right place at the right time rather than skill, Tanya. I guess he/she was trying to get at the weed.

  10. Loving the ice particles. The frosts really have arrived haven't they?
