What it's like in kin domain in an abnormally warm winter 14.01.2020 13:23:22
Today is December 24, and it is raining instead of snowing...
A thermometer shows as much as 0.5 degrees! Today we woke up and found the trees look like crystal.
Front arch and icy birch
Winding yves in ice
Oak has become a crystal
We had seen such picture once, but it was in October. I remember that birch trees looked more like palm trees and from each gust of wind their branches turned into crystal bells. We listened to beautiful music, but it was a real test for plants. Some branches broke due to the weight of ice on them.
We do not know, what will happen this time. It's said by the end of the week it will be - 10 degrees. How can all these plants endure, I won’t know how ?! If this goes on, then in winter we will not use skis and skates, but will arrange swimming or diving in our pond. During these days it began to be filled with water, and then it went off into the winter empty.
The pond is filling with water
Pine needles in ice
Savin juniper (Juniperus sabina)
Who did not have time to mow the grass before winter, it's high time to do it. The grass is icy and breaks easily even at the touch of a hand. And our roads were covered with icy asphalt. If you walk in shoes with slippery soles, you feel like a dog on wet lino. These are our sad weather news.
