In the garden

The garden is a curious mix of wintery-ness and one tree thats still has almost all its leaves and all are still green, its not an evergreen its a cherry plum tree and i’m not sure why its taking so long to shed its leaves this year I don’t recall it being so slow other years.

Anyway here’s some pictures of leaves, snow and icicles….all taken within the space of 10 minutes this morning


Huge icicle on neighbours guttering, its melting fast though.


Logs, snow and leaves.


Cherry plum tree still in leaf.


Melting snow.


Fallen autumn leaves

I went out for an afternoon walk today hoping to get some shots of autumnal trees.

I was a bit late though and the light was fading too much.

But these shots of the leaves that had alreday fallen appealed.

The leaves seem to be coming down quickly this year, plenty of those still on the trees are still green but the golden ones are coming off fast in the wind.

Tomorrow I might head out to Epping Forest to see how that’s looking.
