A walk in the park in the snow


Monkey puzzle tree

I have been enviously looking at so many blogs showing beautiful images of snow. The snow we had in Weymouth was very wet and turned immediately slushy and disappeared -not at all photogenic! In Dorchester where I work 7 miles away (11km) it was a different scene.


So my lunchtime was spent in the park enjoying the beauty of the snow.....

  1. Beautiful pictures Sarah, the first pictureis a very nice wan I like it so much. Over here a lot of snow and very cold outsite. We had - 5 but the feeling temperature was I think -12 and that came from the north east wind. Now it is much better no more wind. Greetings Petra.

  2. Lovely photographs as ever Sarah! Doesn't that red of the bandstand sing out? I'm still waiting for the snow - though the hilltops are covered..

  3. Dear Sarah,

    The snow photographs looks so very beautiful and have been seeing the snow you are having at Heathrow on the TV.
    I wonder if Daisy minds going out for walks in the snow?
    Stay warm and have a lovely week
    hugs

  4. I love all of your pictures and doesn't the bandstand look glorious with its red showing up against the snow?
    I was desperate to get some snow pictures, but now I am ready for it go on its travels again. I did notice that the snow was dripping from the roof today so may be my wish will be granted.

  5. My OH was in Swanage today and they had hardly any snow. Here in the New Forest, we are freezing tonight and the compacted snow is going to be very slippery in the morning!

    Your photos are beautiful. Especially the icy monkey puzzle and those feathery clematis seed heads.

  11. Hello Sarah:
    What a glorious place to spend a lunchtime. It looks so very pretty and peaceful, quite the most perfect place to escape the pressures of work.

    The bandstand stands out delightfully against its white background. One can almost hear the band playing!

  16. Hello Sarah,
    Super photos. The snow looks so nice when fresh ... I agree with Rosemary, the red painted grandstand looks so attractive against the white snow.
    All the lovely winter photos of the snow so lovely.
    wishing you a happy week Sarah

  17. I bet little Daisy went wild in the white stuff! HI SARAH! Enjoy what you can of the snow if it comes your way; we typically get socked with a lot of it, but the last two years has been very dry. We only have below zero Farenheit temps to deal with! Anita

  18. Very pretty snow pictures! I love monkey puzzle trees. There are a lot of them in Vancouver, but it is too harsh a climate for them where I live.

  23. We had a light layer of snow here this morning but it's been raining since then and it's almost all gone now. It is very cold though.

  24. Hello Sarah, Beautiful photos. You captured the beauty of snow and what it leaves behind. Have a wonderful day.

  25. I love the little hints of bright colour in the almost black and white pictures. We had about 8-10" here in Yorkshire and I had to work at home 2 days.

  26. Love that frothy, frozen clematis - magical. Glad you got your bit of snow. Ours is still very slippery underfoot but disappearing fast. Poor Flora has spent days up at the back door 'cos the pond is frozen. She has fresh water to wash in, but she's getting very fed up!
