With no trumpet blast or trill
The final curtain fell

Joining in with Wild Daffodil and her gang’s photographic challenge with the prompt ‘winter’ and Ronovan‘s haiku challenge with the prompt words ‘final’ and ‘trill’. Thank you to all of them for hosting the challenges and do visit their blogs to find other posts which rise to meet one or both of the challenges.
Winter here in the UK Midlands has mostly been very mild, with several early spring blooms beginning to show their faces before Christmas. A recent week of temperatures barely above freezing slowed things down but in the last few days they have again begun to rise, confusing gardeners as well as gardens. We were forecast snow showers a little over a week ago and woke to snowy photogenic gardens but the couple of inches you can see highlighting this part of the garden had gone by the end of the day. As I write, the wind is whipping through the trees outside and there is talk of another storm, so has the curtain fallen on our winter for this year? Who knows…
