I will sweep them all up for a Review on Sunday sometime after 9am GMT.

If you would like to join the list as a regular contributor then let NanaCathy know and she will post your blog address each week along with all our other regulars.

  9. This is fabulous! I can almost feel the frost! Your haiku is lovely, also. I love Bjork – my daughter saw her in concert and absolutely had the best time. Perfect complement to your photo.

    • Hi Roz, the link did not work, but I have changed it so that it does. Great to have another entry combining the Haiku and Photo – it often seems impossible at first but you did a grand job!


  13. No frost here I’m afraid to say, just rain, rain, rain! What is this that you have photographed? It’s so familiar but I can’t name it. Beautiful macro and the haiku suits it perfectly.

  18. I love your winter photo Sandra – and realised when I came to look at mine that I hadn’t taken any close ups this time. I could have used an older one, but I wanted it to be topical and relate to this winter. But I have been prompt with all the prompts this time – and no knots! Hurrah! Here is mine:
