More iced muffins anyone?

Talk about deja vous! This snow is easily as deep as the first lot, but this time it is sticking on all the branches and twigs whereas last time it was very dry and blew into drifts with the gales that we had at the same time. There was just a sprinkling when it was time for me to go to church, but by the time we left all our cars in the car park were covered! I got safely home but really it was a blizzard and this is where I intend to stay until it stops, the sooner the better. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.

It is still snowing, but only very gently now, the forecast is that it should stop soon and then start to warm up by a couple of degrees, I hope they are right! I know that a lot of you get serious snow every winter, but it is so unusual here in the south west of the UK and to get some twice in March is unheard of!

Hope you all stay warm and safe.

    It really shows the structure of your garden Pauline – lovely to look out on it on a day like this! Glad you got back safelyy and are staying warm

    Cathy has taken the words out of my mouth 🙂 Those box balls look like little Christmas puds. Snow here too but just a sprinkling really. Hope that you are staying warm and cosy Pauline.

      They do look rather nice with their icing topping Anna, but I will be very happy when it all goes! When we lived in the north west I was used to lots of snow, but down here it is a very rare occurance, just not used to it any more!

    It’s not too bad if you don’t have to go out in it and your garden looks beautiful in the snow, Pauline. Just seems a shame to cover all your lovely spring flowers up again ! Take care.

    I enjoyed seeing yor iced muffins Pauline, you’ll be catching up with us soon! It’s lovely though when you can sit inside where it’s warm and cosy and look out at the view.

    • Pauline says:

      How do you cope with this all winter Denise! Obviously if we had it every winter we would all have a lot more equipment to help us to cope, but I can’t wait until we have spring back again please!

    The snow makes your garden look lovely in a new way, but hope you get some warmer spring-like weather soon. We have a prediction for light snow tomorrow (Wednesday) morning but today is a warm 60F.

      Thank you Susie, the snow does add an extra dimension to the garden, it is thawing nicely now and green is returning to the garden. We still have the bitterly cold east wind from Russia, but at least the sun is shining. I have had a quick walk around the garden and most of the daffodils have been squashed flat, if they aren’t standing up by tomorrow I think I’ll bring them in and enjoy them in the warm!

    You captured some lovely snow-scenes. It’s nice to see other places getting more than a dusting of snow. We in Ontario get so much it sometimes feels like too much.

    • Pauline says:

      Lovely to hear from you Cynthia. We aren’t used to snow down here in the SW corner of the UK, so it comes as a bit of a surprise now and again! My nephew lives in Ontario and he keeps me up to date with the snow back home, I’m so glad we don’t have as much!

  7. Christina says:

    Your garden looks lovely under the snowy covering but I hope you are right and that this is the end of the bad weather for this winter. Here we haven’t had any more now but the wind is blowing at 50km per hour and is icy cold. Minus four predicted for tomorrow night. I’ve never known such a cold winter since we came to central Italy 15 years ago.

    • Pauline says:

      I’m pleased to be able to say Christina, that it is back to green once more, with just a few pockets of snow remaining where it has formed drifts. Hopefully this will be the last blast of winter, we’ll just keep everything crossed! The last time it was this bad was 2010/2011 winter, I hope it will be another 7 yrs until it happens again!

    Thank goodness the snow is now just a memory!
