More Snow

We woke up to heavy snow falls yesterday. Here are some of my silver birch snow-laden.

unbelievable the amount of snow, very pretty though

20 Feb, 2010

 

Hi Yorkshire - we got about 3 inches but the roads were OK, that's the main thing.

20 Feb, 2010

 

glad to hear the roads were o.k. we have been lucky here just a slight shower thursday but apparently more forcast for tomorrow.

20 Feb, 2010

 

Your trees look beautiful Dawn!

20 Feb, 2010

 

Hope you dont get too much - when is it going to end.
After I read your comment, I've just looked on MetCheck and heavy snow is forecast for in the night here too :-(

20 Feb, 2010

 

Thanks Alice - did you spot Bonnie foraging around.

20 Feb, 2010

 

i have just checked the weather Dawn, looks like we are really in for it tomorrow.

20 Feb, 2010

 

Do you think we will ever garden again, lol. It seem so long ago now.

20 Feb, 2010

 

we went in the garden yesterday to cut up some bushes we had removed, not out long as my fingers had gone numb with the cold.we just want to get out and start but I don't like the cold.

20 Feb, 2010

 

A mild February is a bad omen, according to flolk lore, as is often followed by a cold frosty May. Our February's are milder than before,

20 Feb, 2010

 

Beautiful photo, Dawn. Sorry you've had more snow, it does seem to be a recurring problem this year!

20 Feb, 2010

 

I'm the same Yorkshire, I cant enjoy working outside if its very cold.
We dont want a mild Feb if that's the case then Sixpence. Frosts in May are devastating for the plants, arent they.
You havent had any more then Gee.

Hi Dawnsaunt! what a lovely photo! You had quite a fall of snow there didn't ya?! It's still just the permafrost here in Carnoustie! I am very envious of your lovely woodland and wildlife pond! Birches are so lovely aren't they? I love the downy birches that grow wild in scottish highlands, they are small enough to be cute and from a distance all you see is the dark red colour of the new branches. I have three jacquemontii in the garden here which will be lovely when they have matured a bit. But to have a real woodland and pond.....ah....heavenly!

20 Feb, 2010

 

Hello Karen. Glad you like the pic. Your Jacquemontii birch sound very nice, mine are mostly just the common Betula Pendula but are one of my favourite native trees. Its is nice walking through my little woodland with Bonnie, we have a mown path that weaves amongst them so I can see them all as I walk.

20 Feb, 2010

20 Feb, 2010

 

Noo San Lol ! Find the best thing about newly laid snow is checking at the top of the garden and looking for new tracks.Think we had a fox visit once...there again it could have been a stray dog ! Lol

20 Feb, 2010

 

What a beautiful picture Dawn, i see Bonnie's checking out what's been going on there !!!

20 Feb, 2010

 

Bb, stray kittens, stray dogs .... what's going on there ? !!! ;-)
You need to open an animal sanctuary and rescue them all :-))))

20 Feb, 2010

 

would be great a fox jane, we have them walking around at night down the street, ive been lucky enough to see them when ive glimpsed out the window if i havent been able to sleep, come looking for food i guess, dont see many stary dogs these days thankfully,i always use to feel sorry for them being left out

20 Feb, 2010

 

Now theres an idea Louise ! : o )

20 Feb, 2010

 

Winter wonderland again..looks if Bonnie is having a great time..lovely pic Dawn x

20 Feb, 2010

 

No San...never seen a stray dog since living here...so guess it must have been a fox ! How lucky you are to be able to watch them coming and going !

20 Feb, 2010

 

we live in rural village and surrounded by fields so we get lots of foxes, rabbits, hedgehogs, ducks, allsorts about, love to watch the bunnies in summer when i drive to work, hop hop hopping in the fields

20 Feb, 2010

 

How wonderful for you San...similar to us......on the drive to work through woodland lanes...often see deer and even hares too !

20 Feb, 2010

 

lucky you having deers, not got them here, would probably have to head to the lakes to see them, think thats the closest place.

21 Feb, 2010

 

San, we get battered by awful gales here too, spring and autumn being the worst ..... i hate them :-(((

21 Feb, 2010

 

Looks like we're all suffering with this retched weather again.
That's right Sandra: March Winds and April Showers - I hate the winds as they can do so much damage.
I've just been on the Met Office website and I cant believe my eyes - heavy snow for Tuesday and Wed and light snow tomorrow.
Going to move to Somerset with you Louise.

21 Feb, 2010
