A Sprinkling of SnowThis morning I woke up to a covering of snow, these pictures don’t do it justice because there was really about an inch but the back garden is so sheltered it takes a lot longer to build up there. Due to a busy schedule I knew I wouldn’t have much time to get out and about with a camera today so I grabbed I few shots whilst I could.

There was a lot more snow out of the front of the house but it isn’t very photogenic with so many cars to spoil the view.  I love the way autumn and winter combine into one, it is not something I have seen before.  Hopefully I will get the chance to go further afield tomorrow so I can show you what it really looks like.

I was a little bit apprehensive because I am not really keen on driving when the roads are snowy and icy and I had an appointment to sell my Dad’s car this morning. I have only driven it a couple of times so I was not very familiar with the way it handles itself, let alone drive it in icy conditions. There was a slight hiccup in the middle of the transaction which slowed down the procedure and I thought at one stage I was going to be late for my hair appointment. Luckily everything sorted itself out in the end. Prior to that I was sorting other things out with my Mum in the local town centre and things there weren’t quite as straight forward as they should have been.

I seem to have been having another of those days.

The hairdresser seemed to be having the same problems as me because she was running late too.  Which meant that by the time I came out of the hairdressers I decided it was a bit too late and too cold to be going out and about with my camera.  On the way home there was an amazing bright orange glow as the sun was going down, which contrasted with the sky and the silhouetted buildings.

    Nice pics CherryPie, we seem to have missed the white fluffy stuff down ‘Ere in ‘Ampshire so far (famous last words).

    It’s always a treat to wake up and find the land covered with snow (particularly if you can just stay inside and enjoy it from there). And, yes, “one of those days” seem to come more and more frequently it seems–life doesn’t seem to be getting any calmer.

      Yes staying inside with a good book and a cup of tea is what’s needed for a cold wintery day. So what do I do? Go outside with my camera ;-)
