Isn't it pretty? And so nice for it to happen over a weekend when most people can enjoy it. I have my fingers crossed for a 'snow day' at work tomorrow!

Alison said...

Great pics Jacky...that's what I call 'real' snow! Stay warm!

Wow, you had LOADS more than we did here in the West Midlands, non left on the trees at all & the footpaths are all slushy

Louise said...

That's pretty much what it looks like here too.

clare said...

Linda said...

wooo that's a lot of snow! It always looks so pretty doesn't it? Ok unless you have to go smoewhere. NO snow here on the South Coast, just rain:(

The spring bulbs don't know what to do and everything had been looking so pretty. Love your photographs but glad I am inside looking at them!

alexa said...

Oh my goodness, I think you'd had even more that we have had! Great photos ...

Our garden looks much the same!! Gorgeous pics! Stay warm! :)

Melissa said...

Oh, that certainly changed the look of the landscape! Stay warm.

Sian said...

Gosh, those are definitely pictures which tell their own story! Wow! Very pretty. But I know I'm saying that from a safe, relatively warm distance. We don't even have a glimpse of snow here!

Thanks for telling the story of the snowy Storytelling Sunday. Nicely recorded Jacky

It's a winter wonderland and no mistake Jackie. Lx

Angelfish said...

Gorgeous photos Jacky. You had much more than us and ours has all gone after a night of rain.

Michelle said...

Amazing pics! I'm soooooo jealous, we didnt get much at all ...

pinky said...

You poor things, nothing here and temps sitting at 5 degree so hopefully it will stay away:9 Love the photos.

Debbie said...

Brrr, it makes me cold just looking at it! DH has just been jumping up and down with glee watching the snow at the premier football sat in his shorts with a cold beer. We certainly don't miss the winter weather at all! Could do with a bit more sun though.....

Jane said...

gorgeous photos, we've had a lot too, keep warm x

Missus Wookie said...

It is pretty and thankfully is fairly airy and light to shovel - as I had to clear the gate and pathway this morning before Meeting! Definitely a day to stay inside in the warm.

Sandra said...

So very very pretty

catherine said...

Jimjams said...

Gosh - that's snow and a half - we had about an inch and it's pretty well gone already!

Amy said...

The poor garden will go into shock, no doubt the animals as well ... especially if their coats have begun to shed!

Maria Ontiveros said...

Great use of photos to tell your story today! Your garden definitely got outfoxed.

I don't envy you! Our daffodils are starting to come up and it is waaaaaay too early (as in at least two months too early). If our temps drop, I'm afraid they'll be toast for this year.

Karen said...

Our daffodils are poking through as well, and when we walked through the park we noticed buds on the magnolia trees. I know there's snow coming; I hope the plants will survive! Beautiful photos!

Stephanie said...

Your garden looks so beautiful in the snow Jacky - I have a postage stamp size garden so I'm jealous! x

Chipper said...

Oh! How beautiful. I wouldn't mind if winter had the last laugh here. It seems we are stuck with a summer scorcher!

Susie Sugar said...

Omg Jackie we're just up the coast from you and we've had none of the White stuff !!! Your garden looks so pretty
I hope you're snuggled up in the warm
Hugs Susie xxx

Jo said...

Wow, your photos are stunning

furrypig said...

I love the fresh snow so pretty and perfect. I am amazed how quickly it started to melt still some left here but it went fairly fast!

Katiejane said...

Wow, that's some serious snow Jacky! It looks so beautiful though. Stay safe and warm.
