I'm writing this post on Saturday 19th January, after a full day's snowfall on Friday.
During Friday, we had this much snow:
No, we had this much snow...
Or this much. Suffice it to say, that by our standards we had a fair bit of snow!
See how the wind carved out a "saucer" around the base of this plant pot.
I wonder whether the Curly Endive underneath this cloche will survive. It's probably pretty cold inside there!
I'm not going to suggest that we sit out on the patio and enjoy the scene.
Why does this next one remind me of making a Swiss Roll?
He went that way... (Probably a fox. The prints are too big for a cat.)
The forecast is for more snow on Sunday. Thank goodness we had no plans to go anywhere this weekend. In fact I don't have to go anywhere until Wednesday, so let's hope the roads are fully passable by then.
But how pretty it looks xxReplyDelete
That's a rare occurrence for you, right? It looks beautiful though.ReplyDelete
You have had more snow than us so far.ReplyDelete
Tracks are deceptive aren't they as the prints seem to grow larger as the snow melts from the edges.
You had about the same amount as us although ours drifted quite considerably and came up to our knees in some parts.ReplyDelete
The snow looks lovely, your endive is probably quite snug beneath its blanket too.ReplyDelete
I always thought you got more snow than that. When I lived in NH, that would have been just a small snowfall.ReplyDelete
Nice winter you have there in England :)ReplyDelete
We didn't get as much as was forecast, thank goodness. I can see the Swiss Roll.ReplyDelete
Yay! Snow! And I don't think I've seen an overview of your garden before - just bits.ReplyDelete
Lucky you! We got none, I had to go in search of it so that my children could make a snowman.ReplyDelete
A couple of days ago, we had first snow here in Tokyo, Japan. Oh, someone was making a huge Swiss Roll in your garden! Happy to find your blog today! Of course, I'm following you:)ReplyDelete
You are right..it's a fox..they walk one foot into the other foot print..right in a line ;-)ReplyDelete
Your curly endive will be the better for this cold I should think. Let us know will you.
Ahem..ahem..you didn't apologize to Canada now did you (big grin). Must post some photos myself!
Nice to see a very different garden in your backyard. I don't see a snowman though )))
OK Bren, (better late than never) I apologize to Canada! Yes, you guys certainly know more about snow than we do...Delete
We don't get much snow where I live, so I think your snow is wonderful, beautiful!ReplyDelete
Glad you don't have to get out in it.
Do I see a Smiley Face in the third photo?
Snow does insulate, so I'm hoping the garden is okay under there.
Lea, yes you're right, there IS a smiley face on that chair-back, Well spotted! Now, what filling should I put in that Swiss Roll?Delete
I am trying very hard to watch where I walk when filling up the bird feeders. My veg plot is looking very pretty in the snow & I have no wish to spoil it with my footprints.ReplyDelete
Love the Swiss Rolls haha!! :)ReplyDelete
Snow, snow, lovely snow. We only had our first snow of the Winter on Friday. It looks lovely. I've seen no fox prints though.ReplyDelete
It looks so comfortable and snug. I was wondering when you'd get snow, as Canada is constantly being bombarded by flurries. :)ReplyDelete
The snow itself always looks nice when its undisturbed and in photographs. Quite frankly Scandinavia and everywhere else they are used to it can keep it. That reminds me you may (or not) like the following.ReplyDelete
Baby Polar Bear says to his Dad "Dad are you sure I'm a Polar Bear".
Dad replies "Yes son I'm sure your a Polar Bear", "Why are you asking".
"Well" says Baby Polar Bear, "I'm bl---y freezing".
Sorry Mark, I expect you will delete this one.
Not so much, but more than we've had here in Chicago-land. Be glad for the moisture!ReplyDelete
