The clouds rolled in and small flurries became bigger snow drifts but at least it wasn't like 2010 (pictured below).
Here is the first snow flurry of 2013. We have gotten off easy this year, keep all your fingers crossed as I did whilst taking these. No slips happened not even on these steps.
I'm glad I left the bamboo canes in to mark the path.
The orchard is in the snow and the remaining leaves on the hedge have been stripped clean.
Time to clean the snow off the glasshouse. Took me 10 mins to get into it to check the sweet peas, the door was frozen shut but the plants were okay under their fleecy blanket.
Even though this fine snow is getting into the eaves somehow.

The moors to the north that border onto the garden. Whilst taking this the winds were coming in from the east, cold and stripping, still saw three groups of walkers pass.
It may be winter but we can dream of summer again.
