Day Nineteen

While the rest of the UK ground to a halt with snow two weeks ago we seemed to be one of the few places that escaped with hardly a flutter of a snowflake... but that all changed last night.

This morning we woke to about 7 inches of the stuff and I confess to being just a little excited... it looks so beautiful.


We ventured through the gate in our back garden to a Narnia like world... and I wasn't the only one who was excited. Snow seems to turn dogs back into puppies!

Off now to shovel snow off the drive... and possibly build a snowman. Hope the rest of you are warm and safe.

  1. I must admit we were more than excited too. Mr DC is angling for a trip to Royston Heath, and I think he's insane.

  2. It does look beautiful Gina but I am quite glad we only had a little. However, by the look of the sky that could all change. Wrap up warm and enjoy yourself.

  5. We woke up to snow today for the first time this year, and I share your excitement. Can't get into the greenhouse again though as it's iced up but that's minor when it's all so pretty!

  6. That's some winter wonderland you've got there, Gina! If you do build a snowman, please do take a photo.

  9. We've had only a couple of inches of snow this year, but it has been COLD. The woodstove has been going night and day, and I'll be bringing in a lot of stovewood today because snow is predicted for three days this coming week. Here we go...

  10. It does indeed look very beautiful - but is so impractical for getting things done which involved transport! Your tree looks lovely, by the way. x

  12. Shovelling wasn't much fun here but I have a dog that turned into a puppy too and made the neighbours laugh!

    It is so pretty but I can't bear the disruption it seems to cause!

  14. It all looks beautiful Gina. Fortunately we didn't get it this time but there is plenty on the way to us later in the week. Batten down the Hatches!

  17. Love your snow pictures, we still have LOADs here, but at least the road has been cleared so we can get out at long last. (not that i haven't enjoyed 4 days of being home..)
