The Promised Snow Arrived…….

28 Feb

The snow starts

A Robin stops off before going to the feeders

It’s thick snow!

Poor little Tete a Tete flowers – hope they recover when things warm up.

Welly dog has become Snowdog

And now the sky is blue over next-door’s roof – but there is more snow to come….

So it has been an indoor day. The temperature was -3C most of the day with the wind chill taking it down to -11C!

    We’ve been hearing about the snow over your way and tonight our spring weather is ending with a big blast of snow.

      Yes, beautiful but hard on creatures and humans! The people in Cumbria are still snowed in and helicopters have been airdropping supplies today – bread, baby milk etc. Very hard for some even if beautiful , I agree. Our birds have been emptying the feeders every day, much quicker than usual. Love to you πŸ™‚

    Soooo …. you probably won’t want to hear about the 27 degrees down here in Jo’burg, I take it?

    Very pretty all the same.
    Stay warm, if you can.

      It’s lovely to hear that you are warm!Will it be so warm in April/May? We are come your way then! Landing in Jo’burg, thence to Durban and Kwa Zulu Natal. Here we are very cold even indoors as our boiler has broken! Trying to defrost pipes with kettles full…. Happy days! πŸ™‚

        April/ May is the onset of Winter. But in Durbs, next to the Indian Ocean, it should be be warm, have no fear. And for a Brit I suspect you may find it positively summer-like.

        If you get waylaid or held over, give us a shout. Maybe we could have coffee?

            Excellent. Drop me a line closer to the time and I’ll send you contact details.
            It would be marvelous to get together even if only for an hour.

    My hellebores have been flattened and frozen and the little daffs don’t look at all happy. Goodness knows the effect on the tender plants. I wasn’t expecting this when we moved to Cornwall!

      I remember this only once in my childhood, the year we moved to Cornwall when I was 6 and my parents said the same as you! We were snowed in in our place in Feock on the side of Pill Creek. I loved it, of course! πŸ™‚
      Our Tete a Tete have bounced back and I hope your Hellebores are looking happier too. πŸ™‚

    Oh, so cold! Lovely effects in your garden, though. That’s one brave little robin.

        I hope your boiler gets fixed SOON! I guess you’ll be piling the comforters on the bed tonight!

        Do like the look of the Welly dog covered with snow. πŸ˜€
