Snow statues

I’d seen on the weather forecast that it was going to snow this morning. I hadn’t expected it to lay, though, so I was very surprised by the view when I woke up.

It’s all but disappeared now, apart from odd patches where the sun hasn’t reached. Strange weather indeed!

Another strange phenomenon is the Brussel sprouts developing a cabbage head but no sprouts. Maybe this is down to the caterpillar attack last summer but now I’m wondering if 1) they do grow a cabbage head anyway and 2) the cabbage tastes like sprouts.

Happy International Women’s Day!


About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    I think the cabbage head will still be edible on the Brussels sprouts. Thanks for sharing, have a wonderful weekend!
