ABC Wednesday, "F" For Frozen Plants Not Slime

Okay, I admit I missed the "E" post and now don't really have enough time to catch up, busy, busy, busy. My "F" post, well an opportunity arose the other day to grab a shot of some frozen plants in my ornamental well. The ice almost looks like slime.

Pity i could not capture last nights episode of Your World Is being Shaken, did anyone else get that grumbling feeling about 1.00 in the morning, I was just sitting here, minding my own business, checking the news, when the desk started moving, the monitor started shaking, my chair wobbled, no, no, no it was not over consumption of Bulmers cider but an earth tremor ("E" for earth tremor if you see what I mean).

Here are a couple of pics of said frozen plants, at least the fish are ok though.

You experienced an earthquake last night?? Oh boy, that must be unusual where you live, eh? As for these frozen plants... hmm, let me investigate these pictures a bit more. Looks good enough to eat.

Hyde DP said...

I thought it was just strong winds - didn't feel anything shake but thought I heard the wheelie-bin falling over.

dot said...

Oh my that's scary! Great pictures!

ellen b said...

That is a serious freeze. Do the plants survive that I wonder...
Have a great day...

bonnie said...

Sorry I missed you this morning. These are beautiful photos. They won't look really slimy until the ice melts... then, ick.

ArneA said...

Very very good.
Do not worry to miss next week too if you come up with the same quality for the H wednesday

Dragonstar said...

I agree with Arne - quality wins over quantity every time! And you always have quality. I'm glad you had no ill effects from the earthquake. We felt one in Wales in 1984 (I think) that made all the china in my kitchen clatter.

DeeMom said...

Great pictures, glad the fish are ok More important you are are alright

Daryl E said...

Well, I will take your word for it .. but other than Frozen, I am not sure what these are .. LOL

Petunia said...

Wow! That's scary...
Great shot:D

Lilli & Nevada said...

That is great shot of the frosted plants.

Siani said...

Great frozen pond pics. Glad your fish are okay. Happy ABC Wednesday!

BumbleVee said...

almost like they have been painted with clear resin isn't it?

photowannabe said...

I think its quite a coincidence to have your belated E post happen while you were preparing your F. Good stuff.
I really like these shots of the frozen plants. Nice compositions.

Liz said...

Gosh, those are really weird. Great photos.

Neva said...

wow I was surprised to find a few of my fellow bloggers felt this...I guess I never considered England a hotspot for seismological action! Love your frozen slime..I mean plants!

Ida said...

VERY GOOD shots! :)

Peter M said...

Joanne - plants survived thanks

Peter M said...

deemom - we are fine thank you

DeeMom said...

I have an answer to your Question But I do not have an e-mail link

IS it possible for you to send it to me, via the blog?
OR I can post it here...what ever is best

BumbleVee said...

Been looking around for pics of your "bike/s" ...can't find one... do you still ride?

Katney said...

Well, I see you have posted your E post (earthquake) as well as your F today. I grew up in an earthquake prone area and never felt them. But I did feel the Nisqually Quake of hmm, must have been 2003 (ask anyone from Seattle) and must say that I was glad I was at the very edge of feeling it--it was a weird sensation and until we had a news report of it, I was only told I should see my doctor.

Jan said...

Brr. Looks pretty cold. Glad you are alright after the quake.

Annie said...

You DID catch up with the E word, making reference to GB's earthquake here. It was surprising to me to hear there had been one there - and then today to find that you felt it in Litchfield.

Your icy plants are quite snugly wrapped up there in the well.

DeeMom said...

Thanks for letting me answer on your ABC post, was not quite sure if I should, that is why I asked about the e-mail.

OK your Question was:

“The great question that has never been answered, and which I have not yet been able to answer, despite my thirty years of research into the feminine soul, is ‘‘what does a woman want?''” Answer that one

First and foremost I speak only for myself! Plus there is a difference between NEED and WANT, but that goes without saying. OK ya READY? What I have in my MAN of 36 years is~~~~~~~~~~~~

A man that is SMART, loving, caring, smart, loving and FUN… INTELLIGENT… loving, witty, loving and totally awesome, {still the HUNK I first laid eyes on} the need to always communicate…NO PLAYING GAMES HERE…straight from the shoulder HONEST gets it ALWAYS! That is the premise our relationship is based on…

This is what we jointly need and want…
Hope that makes sense ;)

BumbleVee said...

Hey Peter, tx for taking time write with the link for your bikes...but nope...didn't work for me.

Yes, I ride a Vulcan 500.... just wondered if you still ride at all and what type of bike/s you have. I had some broken bones in my foot and ankle last year and didn't get to ride at all...she sat under tarps...

Peter M said...

Deemom, thanks for answer I think, the quote i left was a real freudian one, it was just a comment to your post, did not necessarily need an answer but thanks anyway

DeeMom said...

oops the for that Peter

guess that went over my head adn under my knees

Please forgive

I am a bit late in commenting, but better late than never!
