Cold and frosty

Not much crafting getting done this weekend - weather is too nice to sit at a desk all afternoon.  It is very cold though and we have had a hard frost both mornings so I nipped out in my dressing gown yesterday morning and took a few photos in the garden.


The frost has fringed all the leaves on this creeping campanula.


and covered every blade of grass on the lawn.


Next door's Magnolia looks pretty against the sky - will look even better when the buds grow fat and bloom.


I like the pattern formed with the overhead view of my sundial.


and this view of the moss and lichens covering the stone surface of the dial.

Hope to use the photos on one of the pages in my art journal but I don't feel like crafting at present, tried to make a little hanging sign for my one year old Grand-daughter's bedroom but messed it up well and good so its sitting there at present - staring at me.  Will have another go tomorrow as we are going down to see them all at the end of the month and I want to take it with us.

Hope everyone has had a good weekend - what have you been up to?

Hi Ann. Lovely photos. I bet that Magnolia looks fantastic when it is in bloom. Thanks for sharing. Especially the sun dial. It has given me some ideas for a fabric book page.

If the New Lawn grasses can cope up with the stress, it will be healthy and dense and will be able to resist disease. Sometime the disease may spread and it becomes out of any control. However, the disease resistant cultivars can be implemented to avoid future problems.
