Are you ready for some more snowy pictures?
This morning as we woke up,
we discovered the world covered in
an even thicker layer of snow than it
already was the days before.
A thick layer of snow covering everything,
making me grab for my camera even before breakfast.
This looks like a snowball in a flowerpot
with sticks stuck in it, but it is a Hydrangea.
This Hydrangea suffered a lot from
the frost in februari 2012.
I had to cut it all back and that's
why there are so many short branches,
all with new buds, which I hope
won't freeze this year....
It is standing in a very sheltered spot....
See it was still snowing a little this morning?
Those are not dust spots on the lens.
And here's the deckchair
with a thick cushion of fresh snow
for a change.
The wooden bench is covered in snow also
and this stem of faded Anemones is trapped on its arm.
The stem probably bent under all the snow
bending down on the benches arm while the snow kept falling
and creating this remarkable scene.
See how the little Christmas tree
has shaken off most of the snow
but the buxus behind it
looks like a huge snowball,
not one little piece of green visible anymore.
O, and here's good old Gaston.
He did age quite a bit overnight,
developed a frown even
and bent a bit
but still laughing and waving at us anyway.
More bent branches,
hanging completely down to the ground.
Most hydrangea flowers are hanging down as well,
Some almost look like icecubes.
So very fragile.
Reminding me I had to get going as well....
In the afternoon.
A little sunshine, although very cold.
Isn't it magical?
I hope I didn't give you all
an overdosis on snow.
I realized I took far more pictures
now than I did all last week.
I didn't even have time yet though
to share the few pictures I took then
but I will soon,
and that won't be snow, promise ;-)
