On one hand, we didn’t have as much snow as had been forecast, which is good, but we had enough to make driving a bit of a worry, it was very icy under the snow. Getting out of my little road and up the hill out of the village was a bit hairy, but once on the main road, everything was fine until I met a tree, half way across the road. Everyone was very gingerly driving round it, I gave way to an oncoming car, just as well, it was a police car! By the time I came home, one and a half hours later, the tree had gone. My first few photos were taken at 7 am when normally it is still dark outside.
The next few photos were taken about an hour later after I’d had my breakfast and fed the birds!
I’ve built up the wood burning stove, so I’ll be staying in here to keep nice and warm. There is no sign of the snow thawing yet, it is still freezing outside, so I think we will have it for a while yet.
Meanwhile, inside I still have my hippeastrum to enjoy seeing as I can’t get into the woodland to see my snowdrops.
The third flower spike is now about 4 inches tall, I wonder how long it will take to start flowering.
I hope you are all keeping safe and warm no matter what your weather is doing, over the other side of the Atlantic the weather is so much worse than it is here, I hope it gets better soon.
