Visit from Jack Frost

Waking up this morning was a complete joy.
I know it was freezing but just look what mother nature has delivered, wonderful scenery as far as your eyes could see. There was spikey little points on everything. Poor chickens will have abit of a shock when they go outside today. Its funny you know im sure its much more colder now with the frost than what it was when it snowed last week. All i can say is thank god for central heating!

This is a view from my kitchen window.

 This is the area where i keep my chickens, as you can see from the picture their enclosure is abit frosted, you normally can see right through.

While i was out this morning i thought i would take along my camera to see what delights i could take, and now i would like to share these pics with you....

You know one thing i do love with these frosty days are webs, cob webs they stand out so much better and again another one of  mother natures miracles..

As you can see incy wincy spider has been very busy, im surprised in someway that these poor little things dont just freeze in these conditions.

I do love poppies, before they flower when you just see their spikey outers to when they undress to reveil their aray of beautiful colours within, and then when they have shed their colours to show off  the most fabulous seed pods.

Well tommorrow will bring another cold day not sure if it will be as wonderful as today, but you know this is what i love about our seasons they are so different but so beautiful in their own right..


  1. Beautiful pictures. I couldn't believe the beauty jack frost had created either. I left the town and walked through our lovely park and it was like i had walked through the wardrobe and into Narnia it was so quiet and so white the trees where really mystical. Freezing cold but natures true beauty. Dee x

  2. Wonderful photos. Those spiders webs are so pretty, they're little miracles really.

  3. oh wasn't it so wonderfully beautiful. I was walking round our village just gasping for prettiness. People I spoke to mainly seemed to be fixated on the cold, so I am glad I wasn't the only one in wonder land. Jacs x
