More Snow, Gylly Beach and Carrot Cake

03 Feb

Snow fell overnight and left everything looking very pretty for a little while. Before long the sky was truly blue and the sun warm so most of it melted away very quickly. We drove (not me yet! just a week to go!) to Gylly Beach. The snow on the top of the car was melting fast all down my passenger window and distorting the view in a delightful way.  We had what felt like a long walk along the front, stopping off at the Gylly Beach Cafe for coffees and carrot cake. On the way home, coming out of Lanner, there were daffodils in the snow on the verges. Click on any photo for the caption and an enlargement.

    Is it early for daffodils, or do you usually have them blooming this time of year?

      We do. They start in January and go on through March. Some of our fields are golden at this time of year with floers for market. I’ll try to get a photo next time we are out. 🙂

        Wow, that is really early. We have a place on the west coast of Canada and when we visit it in the sprig we don’t usually have daffodils until end of March or so, and I think the climate there is rated at zone 9 or 10 for growing. In Alberta (main home) we are lucky to have flowers by mid to end of May.
        I’d love to see the field picture.

          I’ll get the photo ASAP. May is a long time to wait for flowers. 🙂
