Winter Sunflower

Today's freezing fog has given an almost sculptural quality to the sunflowers I left on the plot to help feed the birds this winter.

The leeks and carrots harvested today were frozen, but it didn't harm their flavour for our (early) Christmas lunch!


  1. I have still got sunflowers out in the garden, mine don't look sculptural like yours though. I have got parsnips outside ready for Christmas day, and have got swede, although they look quite small, not sure if they will be edible, I have bought one from Sainsburys just in case. Have a good Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  2. I'm envious - I had total parsnip failure this year! I love swede too, but this is a veg too far as far as NAH is concerned.

    Have a great Christmas and New Year!

  3. Sunflowers for me next year on the plot.This is a great photo. I have parsnips and turnips in the garden-like Louise's they are quite small. Everything else if from Allington Farm Shop.

    Good things to you for Christmas and the New Year too.
