I did mention something about snow on my previous post but I certainly didn’t wish for the sleet and slush that have been troubling us since the weekend. There is no point having a snow cover if it is as wet as rain and comes with a thick cloud cover meaning more days without any sunshine.
Hubby took these photos a couple of days ago when he walked to the mailbox at around 9 am. I’m afraid we haven’t had it much brighter than this in days, perhaps weeks.
The white icing was so heavy on the trees and shrubs I had to carry out some lilac rescue as I noticed we had already lost a couple of trunks. Plus the top of a birch. Soon all this will be gone and we’ll be back to the even more depressing grey darkness sprinkled with rainfall. How could anyone survive our kind of winter without the festive season?
