Without leaves

We often speak of trees as being most attractive when they are in leaf but, for me, they are equally interesting during the winter months when, bereft of leaves, they display their skeletal shapes and patterns.

Snowdrop time

During the past two weeks snowdrops have appeared in growing numbers beneath hedgerows, in woodlands and on the verges beside the bridle way.  They will be with us for the next few weeks.

What joy these small flowers  brings at this time of the year!  With remarkable resilience the snowdrop forces its way through frozen earth, through matted ivies, nettles,  decaying leaves and fallen branches to produce a carpet of pure white.

Winter through the kitchen window (2)

Within the wider winter scenes presented in the previous post, there are vignettes of interest that encourage closer attention, further experimentation and alternative interpretation.

Winter through the kitchen window

Two days ago we woke to discover that the landscape had been transformed overnight.  Fields, trees and buildings were covered with a blanket of snow  –  the first of  the winter  –   creating  a hushed, fairyland scene.

The photographs were taken looking out through the kitchen window.

 

 

The snow on the patio furniture provides an indication of the depth of the snowfall.

A glimpse of Winter

winter 1b

 

It has been a most unusual winter so far:  lots of rain, lots of wind, a succession of damaging storms, but on Sunday morning we woke to discover  everywhere covered by a picturesque  blanket of snow. ‘ Is this the beginning of winter?’ we asked..

Jackdaws and crows retreated to the highest branches of trees and looked down in disgust.

A bemused blackbird peered over the roof top.

Two faces of winter

The pictures below are of the same tree taken on two consecutive days, yesterday and today (Friday).   Yesterday shiny patches of bark sparkled in the  brilliant winter sunshine.  Today, following an overnight fall of snow (our first this winter!) the sun still shone, though somewhat intermittently.

Frost patterns (4)

To offer an alternative interpretation, this picture of frost on grass (taken at the same time as the recent posts) has been given a touch of watercolour filter.
