Against All Odds – Weekly Photo Challenge

In the garden this past fortnight, there have been some inspiring examples of nature endeavouring to put on one of her frosty spectaculars, against all odds.Β  To see other interpretations, click on Weekly Photo Challenge.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

    Great finds! Nice way to enjoy a cold day!

    Those are winter pansies. If you have a place for them in direct sunlight they will bloom and provide a nice splash of colour, but if there’s not enough sunlight then they make a fairly depressing winter plant with hardly any blooms at all. They don’t ever reach the vivid hues of summer pansies though.


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
