The Snow Must Go On :O))


Wow, we have had a massive snow fall during the night - I know it started about 1am as we were just off to bed...I couldn't sleep and eventually got up at 3am and it was still snowing....and it didn't let up until about 7am.

We never get a decent snowfall here so I am chuffty tuffty today cos I love the stuff :O)) I reckon we have had about 4" in total overnight.. this piccie sort of shows how deep it is

I have been outside with my camera and taken a few piccies of the garden - and I am even more chuffty tuffty cos I made a big batch of bird food; pieces of moistened bread, cooked potato, grated apple, sultana's, grated cheese and bran flakes....and....guess what!!! We have a Fieldfare eating it! I haven't seen one of these before and I am very honoured the little fella decided to come and visit my garden. When I took the photo I didn't realise he was being watched by a Blue Tit, only when I zoomed in on the piccie on the PC did I notice him.

You will also see that we have a different kind of visitor in the garden too LOL Yes, I know, how old am I? But I couldn't help it....his name is Arthur on account of him being little, so he is only....'half a' snowman LOL

No crafty stuff today, my back is agony now .... own fault but worth it :O)) Am off to rest up a bit and perhaps I will get a card made later on.

Thanks for looking and I hope you keeping safe and warm if you have snow at your house.
