Thankfully - oh so thankfully!!! - snowfall is pretty rare in our part of the country. I am thankful for this because we are just not set up for it and it causes chaos when it comes. We are not set up for it because it comes so rarely. A vicious, but understandable cycle. When I have lived in places set up for snow it hasn't been a problem.
When we do get snow though, it does mean that I have to run out into the garden and photograph it likety split because it will, I hope!, be gone again very soon. So on Thursday night when we had snow I hoped that it would stay until the morning so I could photograph it. It did stay! There wasn't much of it, but I noticed that the children of one of the neighbours found enough to make a surprisingly large snowman in their garden.
The snow only stayed until Saturday and although it had another go at snowing it didn't come to anything. Since then it has been raining - a lot! - so it is now all washed away. I thought you might like to see it though.
Now, those of you who get real snow should prepare yourselves. To you, this will be nothing!!
I love how the snow settles on the garden ornaments. Although the dragonfly isn't actually snowy, it just needs painting! He looks snowy in this weather though doesn't he.
As the snow settles on things and then it warms up and melts this is what is starts to look like.
You can see from the grass that there wasn't really very much snow.
It does highlight the fact that time got away from me at the end of last year though and there is lots of tidying up to do in the garden. Oh well, we will get there. It isn't going to go anywhere is it! Too wet to do it now though.
Thankfully yucca's are very hardy plants. Although I notice this one has some grass growing with it. Another job!
Too cold and wet to sit and enjoy the snow though.
I have been hoping, since I rescued this conical shaped pot from Man's house that some snow would land on it because I knew it would make a great photo. Well I think it is great! I was glad to see just a dusting. Of course I will be more glad in the summer when it is full of plants and looking pretty!
So just a little snow, but better than no snow. I am glad it came and glad it has gone again. This is just enough for me!
