Snowy Flowers

 I've managed to get a run in over the last few days, 9.2km in the snow and hail, but then settling snow and icy conditions made running too difficult. So, it was back to walking, and of course the dusting of snow made for some nice photo opportunities.

It also meant the kids could take their sledges out onto the Sconce, and slide down a millimetre of snow which rapidly turned into mud under the plastic armada.

The cold weather has been horrible for cycling, and I've been walking in again mainly because of the pain of Raynaud's Syndrome I get in my hands when cycling. Each night this week has got colder and colder, and I'm nervous of black ice. 

I hope you are all staying warm and safe.

  1. An iris? The aconites look great in snow.

  2. I haven't been able to walk outside lately either - too cold, too icy, too many excuses! But I ride my exercycle inside so that is better than nothing!
    Thanks for the photos of the lovely flowers! None here for a while yet...

  3. Si if there are any flowers to be found you will find them/ Lovely.

  4. Lovely, cheerful photos. The crocus and irises are brilliant - and the aconites!

  5. Beautiful photos, it's lovely to see the colour of the flowers poking through the snow
