Snow covered Belfast

Don't you just love taking Winter walks! I do. Here are a few photos from a walk in our snow covered Belfast Botanic Gardens.

A 55% chance of a white Christmas in Northern ireland.
The Palm House at Belfast Botanic Gardens.
Not sure what the plants are they are trying to protect.
3 days to Christmas!
Hope your festive plans are taking shape.


  1. I just love the signpost showing the way to the Tropical Ravine. Did you go?

  2. Yes, the tropical ravine is warm and humid, filled with exotic plants and a fish pond.

  3. Lovely pictures. We had another dusting last night but still not as much as you've had.
