Snow covers up a garden’s imperfections and allows you to see its structure with greater clarity. In the case of our garden it turns out the white stuff makes it look like a giant wedding cake.
In a few week’s time it will be hard to believe the garden looked like this for a few days. Today it was too cold to go outside with a wind chill that made it feel like -8C, but on Tuesday we had a delightful snow day of sledging, snowball fights and making snowmen.
Yesterday the Little Weeds were back at school for one day giving me time to take a few pictures of flowers in the snow and bitter sunshine.
