My Garden in December – As 2013 Ends

Hurray hurray at last Jack Frost has worked his magic overnight and the garden looks all white and sparkily.  We have been spoilt over the last few years by having snow and hard frost before Christmas.  This year November and December have been so mild with even a light frost rare.  The weeds are growing and the bulbs are pushing up through the ground.

I just love the extra interest a frost adds to a garden.  It really shows the structure of the plants.  Suddenly the ordinary becomes interesting and absorbing.  I hope you enjoy these photographs as much as I have enjoyed my garden this morning.

The photos of the glass balls above were taken on different days.  For once I prefer the unfrozen one for the view it gives.

Looking forward to seeing what 2014 brings for my garden.

    Such pretty photos! I enjoyed the side-by-side comparison of the gazing ball–both photos are great, but I can see why the frost-free one is your favorite (it looks more comfortable AND gives you a better view). Happy New Year!
