Wouldn't you just know it?

Snow was forecast for the North West so when my sister rang on Saturday to tell us that where she lived - a fifteen minute drive away - it was snowing, and that we had better call off our intended visit, we were surprised. We are on the eastern side of the country with the Pennines separating us  from the predicted Snow.

When we peeped through the curtains we saw that we too had gently falling snow that was gradually carpeting the ground.

Just before bedtime I nipped out with my camera and took a few photos.
 Wouldn't you just know it - the front garden bed that I had cut back the same afternoon was covered.
Sunday morning, the snow was still hanging on so I was back out with my camera.
Extra helpings needed on the bird tables - I wonder whether the birds that have deserted us during the mild spell will be tempted back. By Sunday evening the snow had all gone. We haven't seen our regular goldfinches for ages in spite of their favourite food being on offer.

The RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch is due to take place on the weekend of the 30 and 31 January; at this rate our count is going to be very low.

PS: If you are feeling the cold spare a thought for a little dog that had her bottom shaved for a recent operation and who has to go outside to the toilet!
