Snow in Poole – 1st March 2018

March 1, 2018

This morning I was out very early to take a few photos of the snow in Poole.  First stop was to have a look at the snow at Poole Park, where there was a bitterly cold wind blowing and only one or two other people around. The icicle covered fountain was certainly very impressive!

The second stop was at Parkstone Park, Ashley Cross, to get a shot of the ice covered frozen fountain.

Dorset’s Wild Orchids 2022

We are lucky in Dorset because we have what is possibly the best site for early spider-orchids in the UK.
