A dusting of snow

We had another fall of snow last night, again not too heavy, maybe an inch or so. But it did make the garden look very magical.

  1. Goodness. Lots of blogs I follow have been showing snow shots of heir garden but yours are by far the most amazing. There is something extra special about snow in the jungle!

  3. That is magic. I don't know what it's doing to the poor plants but it is beautiful. So strange to see palms with snow on them.

  4. They are really pretty shots. But I am shivering looking at all the tropicals dropping their heads.

  5. The snow looks like a sugar coating and like too much sugar dangerous for your tender plants! I gather they can take it though, as you do not seem too concerned. Very beautiful!

  8. It's very pretty indeed :)

    We do regularly get bouts of snow in our location during the course of winter. A couple of years ago we even had snow in October, the earliest we've had here so far (and hopefully that won't be broken!).

    On thing unusual this time is that this snowfall is followed by a prolonged cold spell, and we've dipped down to -6.5C already, in late November/early December. We don't usually get this sort of condition till mid February.

    Given the choice I'd rather not have snow here to be honest. You still can't help worrying about the plants (despite having mostly hardy exotics in the garden), not to mention the commute to work becomes a hassle.

    Looking forward to the thaw! :)

  10. Fantastic pictures again. Although we are virtually snowed in our temperature in Aberdeen haven't dropped lower than minus4. A different story a few miles inland though, much colder. Mind you we are apparently facing minus12 tonight brr.Thanks for the tips and the kind comments.
