Okay, according to the calendar, it’s winter. But while walking in the park at the weekend I already found the first flowers.
It was so cold outside!
Especially because I had forgotten my gloves at home and was wearing the wrong shoes. I should have looked at the thermometer before I went out, but the whole week before it was so warm outside that I didn’t even think about it.
I am actually too old for such stupid mistakes 😀
As someone with many plant allergies and asthma, I cannot have flowers or plants at home.
But when I find them in nature, I can enjoy them and find them beautiful.
I’m always so happy when I discover the first flowers. There are not many yet, but still a sign that it may not be long before spring comes.
Here the ONLY bush in the whole park that already had blossoms.
A few more hours or maybe days with sunshine and the daffodils are in full bloom
Here you can see how cold it was that weekend. Behind the ducks you can see that there is a layer of ice on the water.
Today I was at my best friend’s and my godchild’s to give them my Christmas presents. And of course to also get presents hihi
They live a few miles from me.
When I arrived at their place I saw that there was hoar frost everywhere on the trees and plants.
Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me but only my mobile phone to take photos. When I was back home I had hoped that I had hoarfrost too, so I could take better photos, but there was nothing there. Too bad.
There you can see what a few miles for a difference make. The air at the house of my friend is more humid because of the stream nearby, her house is a little more open with more wind. My house is in the middle of the city.
On the photos you can see what cold, humid air and wind create for works of art. It looks like every plant suddenly got needles.
Even cobwebs suddenly look like works of art
I would go there again to take real photos, but I saw in the garden after a few hours that the hoarfrost has changed, that the beautiful shape got lost.
