Snow!

Hello everyone
Just been uploading photos of our worst snowfall for 13 years here in the West Country. I have had a day off due to school closure – we are just not geared up for this! So made the most of it and went out with a friend along the coastal path to witness snow on the beaches – a rare sight and a beautiful one. I loved the feel of the winter sun on my back and the brightness that snow gives so for me it’s come as a blessing in disguise as it really lifted my spirits after the last few weeks. I know the photos aren’t really gardening ones but I wanted to share them with you all as you have helped me when I was feeling down.
Hope you are all ok in this weather and keeping warm?
Love jo x

Hi Jo. It's strange to see snow on a beach.
I'm glad it lifted your spirits ( the opposite of what it's done to me. lol )

Gwenda's that is so beautiful. I can see you are far away from the equator, the sun's angle is different. I love the little harbour. I remember you have a big difference in tides, is that right? Just want to know if I remember it correctly. Where is that little harbour? It's lovely. Who says it has nothing to do with gardening, lol? I can see grass and trees in every picture. Thanks for the story and pictures.

This is Padstow in North Cornwall ( home of Rick Stein!) - I actually come from a nearby bay called Trevone but now live at the top of town. You must visit Marquerite! I so love looking at your photos - such very different landscape and plants! The tides here vary as you say and we can experience very high ones which flood the lower town and harbour.IDespite having lived away from here for a number of years and loving travel I now couldn't live anywhere else.
