Snowy Scenes from the Cemetery

 Yesterday there was still a lot of snow lying in North Merchiston Cemetery when we went for our #DailyExercise. With the trees mostly bare, it's easy to see beyond the cemetery to the surrounding buildings, including St Michael's Kirk (seen her alongside the silver birch tree that I'm studying for Tree Following).

The snowdrops are blooming under the snow 

while the ivy is basking in sunshine! I always like the shadows the ivy flowers / fruit make on the leaves, 


A couple of days ago we had walked under a flock of goldfinches feeding in a tree and noticed the seeds all falling to the ground, obviously the birds had carried on the feast, given the number of seeds we saw on the snow yesterday  

This weekend is Big Garden Birdwatch, you can find out more here!

Snow, here, went and hasn't come back. There's still time though...

Snow came but never settled, good, because I hate cycling in it
