With the mildness of the winter so far, the last thing I expected was to see snow on Boxing Day! It would have been amazing to have seen this 24 hours earlier, but I can live with it being a little late. Mr Teen was acting like a toddler once again and shouting out that it was settling but I just let him believe that... until I went out in my pyjamas to put the rubbish out and was met by the crisp, white, untouched snow!
For a little dog that absolutely hates rain, Coco certainly loves sniffing around. Her medication was kicking in, so I suppose she didn't mind too much this morning.
With the camera settings on macro (I couldn't torture you with photos of the whole garden - it's depressing at this time of year!), I set about capturing the cold icy structures that had formed on the everyday objects. I love how the individual flakes group together to form such a solid mass.
The garden broom wore jewels of ice with fluffy undertones of snow.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
