We had another light snowfall yesterday, and although last night’s frost means today everything is still crunchy underfoot it already seems to be melting a little in the low winter mid-day sun. So my camera and I went out to the back garden to see what we could see, taking a series of photographs of my snowmelt winter garden 🙂
I’ve been far too slow at cutting back my garden roses this winter, but it does mean we still have the odd splash of colour dotted about here and there… 🙂
This morning saw a really busy breakfast shift at our bird feeder – sadly by the time I thought to fetch my camera the main rush hour had passed, but I still caught a few stragglers.
Today we saw sparrows, blue tits, coal tits, a robin and even a goldfinch at the feeder, not to mention the blackbirds and pigeons hanging about for overspill leftovers.
It definitely brought a big smile to our faces over breakfast to watch the to-ing and fro-ing and tag-team shenanigans of the small bird world, courtesy of our kitchen window 🙂

November berries from an unidentified plant growing in my garden – if anyone can tell me what it is, that would be great – I’ve noticed in passing there are a few similar small bushes growing with wild abandon in other people’s gardens nearby, but I’m wondering if it’s actually meant to be there or is one of those sneaky interlopers, an invasive aberration I should perhaps be getting rid of… 🙂
As well as beuatiful autumnal colours my November garden also brings the promise of new life for next year 🙂
These lovelies are still growing happily in my front garden with their tight bright yellow flowers – are they some kind of marigolds maybe? 🙂
