Winter Wonderland, Cardiff

by Angela


As the year draws to a close I thought I better take a picture of the lights in Cardiff before they are taken down, and also share some pictures of the snow which is now nearly all gone now. The snow was lovely at the beginning, but the novelty soon wore off. This may sound a little bit silly but I couldn’t really enjoy it as much as should have because I was constantly worried about the small birds and hoping they could find enough food. I did my best to put out plenty of extra food but I am sure some little birds didn’t make it. On a positive note, a lot of the shops were sold out of wild bird food so it looks like people didn’t forget them in the cold weather.  The garden is full of birds today and the Woodpecker is back, this time he’s feasting on my Homemade Bird Seed Cake. It does my heart good to see him and makes me happy for the rest of the day.


Happy New Year to all my followers and all the best for the New Year!

Fabulous winter shot of Christmas Eve in Cardif, so different to our Christmas here in the other hemisphere. Lovely to see the lights and especially to see the birds in the garden. I love that you look out for birds. xx

oh I love the icicle curtain! snow is something unheard of here at sams creek – our kidlins would love to see some real snow – we'll make the drive into the moutains one year to show them (I remember my first and only encounter with snow – I was 11 and I couldn't get over how wet and cold the stuff was…. I know that will sound silly to anyone living in a snowy clime….. but in my kiddie mind I thought snow was just like cotton wool – fuzzy and soft…..) I hope all the little birdies survive the cold

happy new year!

I know its totally obvious but I find it strange that snow is so alien to you both in Australia. I had never really considered it before. I suppose if you'd only every seen snow on TV it would seem to be like cotton wool 🙂 It makes perfect sense Ronnie.

This year's snow was exceptional and described as 'freak' weather conditions for the UK. Apparently one of the coldest Decembers on record for about 30 years.
