This morning we woke up to the muffling silence of snow. The garden was snuggled under a brilliant soft white blanket.
People are out on the street. A mum is pulling her two girls along on a sledge. A mum and dad are walking along with their little one who is wide eyed at the first snow he has probably ever seen. I can hear squeals of delight as I'm typing. Each family is keeping their social distance but smiling and waving to all who pass by or call encouragement from their garden gates.
There are two snow caused casualties in the garden.
