The Magic of Winter

Snow doesn't stop falling. Maybe because of the cold, the snowflakes look like true hexagons. And they are pretty big so one can see them with a bare eye. Snow is also dry and easy to clear; snowflakes simply 'fly' around when I sweep them with a broom!
I was in the garden for a while shaking the snow down from the conifers. It was just a precaution measure because conifers tend to hang on branches under the snow.

How much snow we got, you can see on the photograph down there.

  1. Wow, you have had a LOT more snow than we have! We had only a couple of centimetres or so, and it has mostly melted now.
    Good idea to shake the snow off the tree branches. With that amount of snow on them they could easily break.

  3. I really cannot believe you have so little snow in Britain! Almost entire Croatian coast is covered in snow which is really very rare thing. Even the sea has frozen in some areas.
    The trauma hospital in Split had nearly 300 interventions, all broken arms, legs, ribs...

  5. Some areas of the UK have more than others - we are also in an area with only a little! The crystals are lovely

  6. Your post reminds me of when I was a child. I had a little brass microscope that I 'd use to magnify the snow flakes. Pretty pictures.
