The snow is here!

The snow has arrived  –  quite late this winter.  It fell during the night on Saturday and we awoke yesterday morning to a covering of  12cm-15cm  –   deeper in places.  Here, in rural Northamptonshire, the scene was transformed into a Winter Wonderland  –  very picturesque.

Snowdrops

Nature’s calendar is punctuated by significant happenings  –  the first lambs of the year, buds on trees and shrubs, pussy willows, bluebells, the return of swallows, the sound of the first cuckoo in Spring, and so on.  But for me, the most eagerly awaited sight is the flowering of the first snowdrops.  This small, seemingly frail plant never ceases to amaze.  Even during severe winters it will somehow find its way through rock hard soil to lift our spirits and, with its coy, pristine flowers,  remind us that Spring will soon be here  –  well, eventually!

Cold and frosty morning

Here, in the heart of the UK, it has been a mild winter to date with only the odd flurry of snowflakes and very little frost. The frost pictures shown today and in the next few days were taken in 2010/2011.
