Snowy Sunday

Welcome to my new followers - Tracy, Marina, Mrs Tightwad, Anne and Never too old - it's lovely having you on board and hope you enjoy my ramblings.

It wasn't such a surprise but oh the joy of seeing the garden covered in snow this morning was a delight to see. I love it and it brings back such lovely memories of childhood. This is what I woke up to from my bedroom window.






We managed to clear the paths and make space for putting out food on the tables and ground for the birds and squirrels, all of whom  had darted away as I snapped them.





We took a leisurely walk and met my daughter and family round the local pub, carefully dodging the round of snowballs coming our way from the grandchildren. I love the crunchy sound when walking on freshly fallen snow and still delight in being the first to leave my footprints in the snow.



Children don't seem to feel the wet or cold do they?

On the way back we spotted this purple flowering Hebe, that was determined not to be put off by the snow!



A nice breath of fresh air and a curl up on the sofa for the afternoon before getting our supper ready. So now I've had my day of snow, I suppose I'd better prepare for the slippery, sliding school run in the morning, if of course they haven't closed the school! in which case it's a day at home with youngest grandson and possibly some baking of cakes.

  1. It's lovely to look out at a garden covered in freshly fallen snow isn't it? It seems to have been thawing overnight here and that's fine by me. Hope you get safely to school this morning.

    1. Thanks for your comment Rowan and glad you are thawing over there. I didn't have to do the school run today thank goodness and hopefully all will be clear tomorrow. Living in a cul de sac means we are the last to see the back of any snow and ice.

  2. I love it when the snow is fresh and white. We also had to clear paths for us and our neighbour who has MS and clear spaces to feed the hungry birds. I love to see children playing in the snow it brings back happy memories for me too:) Hope the school run isn't too slippy this morning:)

    1. Thanks for your comment Rosie. Thank goodness I didn't have to do the school run today and hopefully tomorrow our cul de sac will be clear enough to pass. The sun is shining now.

  3. You look like you had as much snow as us. Although the main roads are now clear, not much has melted from our garden yet.

  4. Love your view onto your snowy garden! It always makes for a special feeling day when we have snow, though I have to say that here in Hampshire the snow was a bit disappointing - very wet and heavy and quickly turned to slush!

    1. Thank you Alix for your comment. I do love the snow (just at the weekends when we haven't got to go anywhere) but when it snows I do like the soft powdery kind, but hate the slush that it leaves behind.

  5. You had masses of snow! Here in Worcestershire it was very disappointing and quickly melted. Today has just been dull and dingy! Jx
