Let it Snow..?

Once again our mad English weather had a special Springtime treat for us on Sunday and we awoke to a heavy blanket of snow. Here are some photos snapped in our garden and the lane...

My dainty tulips wearing snowcaps...

No dip for the birds today...

A snowy tangle of brambles...

Sunny side up...or down?

At least it's nice and toasty in here!

As pretty as the snow is, let's hope we see some warm and sunny weather soon!


  1. oh I feel your pain. We just had the same here happen in Alaska. We were going to spend this weekend getting the yard ready and cleaned up, until about 4 inches of snow was dumped on us! Beautiful, but irritating :)

  2. Oh the poor, poor tulips. We had a wonderful weekend here in Pennsylvania and I did yard work and planted some violets. Once again I foolishly tempt fate, knowing that we always have at least one April snow, just enough to spoil ll the planting Ive done.
    Your photos make it look so pretty but heres to hoping you get warmer weather soon.

  3. Is this your adorable cottage in that last pic? So so adorable, show us more.

  4. Oh Clare, it looks so pretty, but I can say that here in my cosy home in Australia! I love the snow, and wish it did just once or twice! I'd love to see more photos of your cottage too, please????

  5. We're expecting some snow this weekend, so I know how you're feeling! Has it melted yet?

  6. Oh my goodness, the poor flowers weren't expecting an ice bath! Brrrr.....

    I hope the sun thaws you out soon!!
