Snowdrops, Frost, but no Snow

January's been for the main part quite mild. At Shipley Park last weekend the snowdrops were already in flower, and those in my garden ready to follow ... then Wednesday night the temperature plummeted to minus4, and remained low all Thursday. At least we didn't have snow.

The snowdrops closed their petals, the daffodils drooped, and frost worked its magic on everything else, from rosemary to spiders' webs

Rowan berries gave a brief pop of colour to the scene

and the tattered remains of honesty seedpods were transformed into ethereal lace
