Reached a age where I would rather look at it than play in it.
Few pictures taken this morning.
The first two are the magnolia normally you would see it bathed in blossom not snow

These are general views of the garden a short while ago.

Nice for a few hours hope it will be back to green very soon.

Bampy taken from first floor window suppose if you took a horizontal line to the bottom of the garden it would be something over 30 ft straight down.

Well it looks magical but do be careful if you go down to check your greenhouses. We don't have snow yet just a very hard frost. Keep warm and safe everybody.

Hope you have all got plenty of milk in the freezer. If the lorries cant get through tonight, there will be a shortage.

Yes, I do understand now BJ, Our climate here is so dry and the air con is so important to us especially in summer, we always go at the sea, falls, or resorts just to relieve the heat waves
