Diamonds on velvet

Another hardy Pansy has popped its velvety face to the light today after keeping safe through the past week’s snow, sleet, hail, rain, bitter temperatures and howling winds.

Gentle rain fell here overnight and in the still conditions, post storm, the raindrops clung like diamonds to velvet.DSCF2817 (1280x961)DSCF2818 (1280x960) (1280x960)DSCF2822

      They are cheerful flowers Ruth and seem to be very resilient. The conditions have been demanding to say the least. Here’s to a bit of warmth ahead this week!

        That is disappointing about the summer so far for you. We needed Purdey’s fur coat here this past week. Winter has really turned up.

        I hope the frost this morning did not reach the planter these pansies are in. We don’t get many frosts here but it was a good one this morning.

        It was a beaut here too. By the way, I have just been on your Felt site to ask about handwarmers. 😉 No pressure if you are not feeling like knitting any.

        It sounds miserably wet up your way. We are well soaked here too and are currently awaiting the BIG southerly to blow in, bringing more rain and bitter cold. Can we hope the aphids are being dealt to this winter?
