The Tuesday View in January

As promised, here is a picture of the Tuesday View under the snow!


It is very frosty, so I didn’t stay out for long with my camera. But here are a couple of other images from today too.

Clematis tangutica – a tangle of stems with straggly seed heads, but the snow makes them seem quite comical!


My beautiful Miscanthus ‘Adagio’ still looks pretty with some sun catching the top…


There is no warmth in the sun outdoors today, but it does add some welcome sparkle…


Hope you have blue skies this week, wherever you are!

    • We were lucky to get the snow just before it started to freeze again, so now everything is clean and white and frozen solid! Hope your freeze comes to an end soon.

  1. It’s lovely Cathy although I can understand when you say you can have too much white for too long! The Miscanthus is gorgeous; they are a fabulous grass. Keep warm.

  2. Yes the miscanthus is beautiful! No blue skies here today but fairly mild and not unpleasant – but some fields near us are flooded after Sunday and Monday’s rain

      • The same is true here for the ski resorts. And to ski the Alps…be still my heart. I’m not a skier, but I remember the beauty when I rode the train through parts of Germany and Switzerland. Breathtaking.

        • I’m not a skier either – I tried it the first winter I was here, but my knees told me it wasn’t my sport! The views can be wonderful when you get to the top of a mountain though, and it would be worth paying for a ski pass just to take the lift up and have lunch in the mountain restaurant. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I do like a nice set of snowy garden photos and it is such a change from the usual view! But I do hope things warm up just a little over there. Winter wears out its welcome awfully quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • You are so right. The snow in the garden still looks fairly white and sparkly, but in the towns it is turning grey and ugly already. I don’t mind the dry cold weather really – it’s the damp wet of a thaw I dislike, revealing mouldy stems and garden debris!

  4. Loved seeing your snow-covered garden, Cathy. It won’t be long before it is growing again. I like to think about your perovskia and fairy roses. My IAVOM yesterday had a glimpse of my dormant garden, but it’s not as pretty as yours. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sadly, the snow always flattens my Miscanthus, but my Astilbe still looks good.

    • That is a nice thought Eliza… Perovskia with bees humming all around it, and butterflies flitting from the buddleia to the roses and the Lavender. Aaah, one day it will all return. Or was it all a dream? ๐Ÿ˜‰
      The snow here was light and powdery and hardly damaged the Miscanthus at all this time round. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I love your header photo, Cathy. The ice crystals on the feathery grass is really beautiful! I have never lived where there was snow, so I am always in awe. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It IS lovely, and despite the bad road conditions and slippery pavements I always look forward to a bit of snow. I love it while it is still fresh, white and clean. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • When the sun shines on a snowy landscape it is so cheering, even with the cold temperatures. So glad you posted a view again. I shall have to start regularly again once there are signs of life out there. Maybe in a month or so… ๐Ÿ™‚
