In Scotland we have just experienced a good fall of snow which covers most of the country. Inspired by this I went out on my bike with objective of obtaining some images of flowers, etc at Greenbank Garden. I was hoping to capture some daffodils but they are not yet in bloom. Notwithstanding this, and the fact I got utterly soaked from the snow and rain, I did have a productive trip. The snow does serve to put nature in a different perspective. All the images below were taken this morning and will, hopefully, give readers of this blog a perspective on the snow.

This is Vibernum blossom encrusted with snow.

The statue in the centre of the pond is named ‘Foam’ and was made for the British Empire exhibition in Glasgow in 1938.

This interesting natural design caught my eye.

 A profusion of snowdrops is some consolation for absence of daffodils.

 This horse image also shows the snow covered local landscape.
