Snow Day

 

Sunday was a snow day, first thing in the morning it snowed for a few hours, a welcome sight for some and dread for others. Personally I love seeing snow and have done since I was a kid but with climate change it does not happen often and when it does is not around for long. Once the snow had stopped I had no hesitation in going outside and getting a few photos around the garden before it disappeared.

 The patio was well covered as it snowed and sitting at the table did not look like a good idea

 
The holly tree looked good for a Christmas Card
The red berries showing for the birds if the needed them
The rose hips took on a coat of snow 
The Olive tree changed colour with the snow

And the apple tree had a layer along the branches, the bird feeder in the background providing food for Birds when they came down. The snow lasted a few hours but was mostly gone by the afternoon. I'm not sure when we will get more or weather is not so predictable now but at least for a few hours the snow was there to enjoy.

There is a bit more to Manor Farm but I will write another blog on that another time.

  7. Nice photos documenting a typical English snowfall, though around here it didn't amount to much at all. At least the colder temperatures made the muddy footpaths navigable without waders.

    1. Pity I remember the snow being deeper and around longer, I doubt the footpaths around here will be so navigable now the snow has gone.

  8. I love the snow photos. You had some on Sunday and we had some yesterday afternoon. It was mostly gone 3 hours later but it was exciting while it lasted.

  11. We had a little blanket of snow also. Like you, I do love the sight of snow, and it is a shame we do not experience it as much anymore. These are lovely garden captures.

  12. The garden is about all I do capture at the moment, no incentive to go anywhere around the village much
