Snowy Garden View

Today it has been very cold and it has snowed for most of the day. Thankfully the snow was fine and dry so it hasn’t built up very much but this meant that the heavy gusts of wind (from Storm Emma) caused mini snow blizzards and snow drifts.

It is still snowing now and this is how my garden looks late in the evening.

    It still amazes me that you’re getting the snow and we aren’t, Cherry. (sigh) You’d think it’d be the other way around with the Beast from the East (Siberia). Well, at least we have the COLD, breaking all records ever for this time of the year. What I most love, besides the snow, is that warm, friendly glow from the windows!

    A scene similar to much of the UK, I should think. Even the balmy central England, there’s around 5cm of snow in the garden plus some mini drifts, too.

    The chilly weather even made the news over here this morning.

  4. Brr! It seems widespread – it’s certainly damn cold. All a bit much at my time of life… (exits, muttering).

  5. My outdoor fish pond is frozen solid still!
    Luckily I moved my fish indoor 2 weeks ago.

      I think you had a lot more snow than we did although I noticed that a local pool was still frozen over at lunchtime today.

      It is a good job you rescued your fish!

    Loved the poetic name of post my friend!

    your Garden as sleeping under spell caused by snow fairy!
    hope the kiss of sunshine awakes it soon

      I love your description of the snow fairy :-)

      The sunshine hasn’t arrived yet but the snow has melted away to reveal the green grass below :-)

  7. We’ve had snow for nearly a week now and still have 6ft snowdrifts in the back garden!

      It finally stopped snowing yesterday and now the snow is mostly gone. I am lucky that where my house is, it is unlikely that I would get drifts that high. My mum whose house is not far away gets bigger drifts in her garden than I do.
