I think the ice queen sprinkled these flakes, caught on sheep fleece upon the devils rope

Every little flake-2

If I catch up with the ice queen I can ask her what the devil has happened to one of my posts from yesterday (Winter Wonderland II) it has vanished. Please tell me dear reader, I didn’t dream it, I posted images of an alder tree branch, rosebay willow herb and something else, I know because Gerry was captivated by the name……

I’m wondering if I’ve managed to over write it  in ‘Windows Live Writer’ because I was messing about with the numbering of this series, we shall see.

A holly sapling, with many a winter ahead of it.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. You have very succeeded photos from winter fences covered with snow.

    Happy Sunday!

  2. hi mrs uhdd – its the ice queen here – do you remember from where????? it must be out there in cyber ice space somewhere! sara. xxx

    • LOL, I do, and a very talented Ice queen she is too!
      She’ll need to be; the school run could be tricky tomorrow, have you looked out of the door this evening, snowing and blowing, not a good combo!

  3. Wonderful frosty images.

  4. Wow! Frosted fences. Even frosted bailing twine fence repairs. There is no end to the Uhddly creativity.

  5. These are all so beautiful but there’s something about the textures in the barbed wire/sheep fleece one at top that takes first prize.

  6. i love baler twine – most of wales seems to be held together with it!
