Snow time ...

Snow arrived in all earnest on Friday morning - the dusting became a blizzard & soon driving conditions were pretty dire.

It was a welcome relief to get back home after picking up daughter after her A-Level maths & physics exam, & to just relax at home.

Daughters took it in turns to help clear our long drive of snow - always a bit of a social time as neighbours stop by to chat & catch up.

We are fortunate to have a pretty lake close by so an invigorating Sunday walk was called for.
I remembered to grab the bread ends to take with so we were rewarded with squabbling ducks, swans & birds - always good for a photo or two.

These ducks on their bit of ice reminded me of all the global warming pictures we have on the news with bears on their bit of ice ...

Back home to warming drinks & candles to ward off the cold.

Shropshire has had a lot of snow so it was a massive relief to see the school closure last night - only open for exam students so we have a few days grace at the moment.

While looking out the main bedroom window that is over the drive, I noticed that we had our unwelcome nocturnal visitor again - an urban fox who has been seen on our lawn several times. We have a large clump of bushes in the front & he seems to favour that as a place to relax ...

Our two house rabbits stay in the double garage so the foot prints near the door means that he is well aware where they are ...

Had to fill up all the bird feeders at the back again - we fortunately have lots of birds & with the cold weather & food put out, we seem to have some new ones too which is always nice.

The above is a new visitor, I  think it might be a blackcap - supposedly a rare visitor - am I right?

The summer house / garden shed is still looking pretty with the front door wreath out on the door. It is always a shame to throw it while it is looking so good ... What do you do with yours?
