In between trying to keep warm (13° C or 55° F inside during the day) we raced around the garden trying to get decent photos. We didn’t have much success; light falling snow isn’t easy to capture on camera. But by the end of the afternoon just a little snow had settled.
The Fluffs, the 9 months old kittens who adopted us last summer, were absolutely baffled. Born in the height of summer they have found it hard to adjust to rain; snow was just too confusing.
The garden plants seem to be unscathed but they all had a sprinkling of snow during the day.
The lilies should be flowering around now. Only time will tell what impact this year’s cold has had.
The sweet peas were making good progress; here they need planting in the depths of winter so they can flower in the spring.
Across the road the banks of wild fennel and other high growth looked pretty and entirely different to usual.
Today the skies are clear and bright, although the temperatures are still low, so that’s probably the last of the snow. Tourists will be arriving soon and expecting it to be much warmer.
