When I woke up this morning, I was very surprised to find that it was white everywhere. Just a sprinkling, but very crisp, we must have had a hard frost after the snow had finished. Snowdrops and hellebores had collapsed and were lying on the ground, but now 5 hours later, the sun is shining, the grass is green once more and the flowers have recovered. Here are a few photos to show that we did actually have some snow, even though it didn’t last very long.
The snow picks out the hard shapes as well as making the garden look totally different for a short time. At least with the snow, the weeds weren’t so obvious!
As we live on the side of a hill, venturing out by car this morning was a bit of an experience. The whole road was like an ice rink, it doesn’t get gritted as it is just a very little minor road, but I got up it by taking it very slowly and was soon onto the main road which was totally clear, having been gritted overnight. I think we are back to more showers this afternoon and overnight, I can cope with rain showers as long as they don’t turn to snow!
