It's back for one last flurry, I hope, before Spring finally settles in for a month or two.
Weather warnings are out, gritters are probably out on the main roads but I've no idea as we won't be going anywhere for a while. Up on our hill we rarely see the gritters now the bus service is no more.
Tuesday was an exquisite day, sunny, dry and cold but with the promise of Spring. We walked across the nearby fields and down towards the park where Daffodils and Snowdrops sparkled in the sunlight. The next day all had changed as is the weather's wont especially on the cusp of seasonal changes.
We shopped on Monday morning and have enough vegetables to make a warming casserole which will last two days. The left overs from today will be topped with mashed potato and swede and turned into a vegetable 'shepherd's' pie tomorrow.
The bird feeders have been topped up ready for the flurry of birds that will visit mid-morning and early afternoon.
The sky has lightened slightly but it is still snowing so there is no chance of a walk today.
All for now.
Such beautiful pictures, I wish they were bigger to see better. Even on the previous posts, those pictures are worth to be seen bigger.ReplyDelete
Thank you, I sometimes try them bigger but they seem too big, perhaps I should change the layout to accommodate them. Thank you for visiting:)Delete
I have Goldfinch envy!ReplyDelete
We are lucky to have the Goldfinches sometimes a dozen at a time:)Delete
Lovely! Peanut is a cutie.ReplyDelete
He is, although he's quite shy and runs away from us if we are in the garden:)Delete
It is very pretty but we don't want snow now do we? In London the sky is grey drizzle, it is bitterly cold and everything is sodden and green. I hope you are staying warm and cosy indoors. xReplyDelete
It seems to be melting away now and the main roads are clear. Hope you too are staying warm this weekend:)Delete
Lovely Rosie & my granddaughter who is now in UK posted about seeing her first snow ever. Thanks for the lovely photos. Take care & hugs.ReplyDelete
How wonderful to see your first snow, it arrived just right for your granddaughter's visit, I hope she is enjoying her stay. You too take care:)Delete
We had more snow yesterday and overnight. We look out to a white world with no movement in our road. Gritters don't attempt our hilly district. We stay in and look forward to warmer weather. Take care both of you.ReplyDelete
We finally saw gritters go by on the road at the end of our side of the Crescent but not up and around it. I hope you are staying warm and cosy this weekend:)Delete
Lovely snowy photos Rosie. Similar situation here and its snowing again this morning! Not the weather to go out anywhere again today unless you have to. I love your bee sunflower heart feeder :) Take care and have a good weekend.ReplyDelete
I guess your weather patterns will be the same as ours here. We did have a short walk yesterday as the snow was soft and not too deep. It was good to be out in the fresh air after two days inside. I loved the feeder but it took awhile for the birds to accept it. Have a lovely weekend:)Delete
Let's hope this is the last of the snow although your photos look very pretty. It's been so windy too, good job you haven't been out. Poor birds, just when they are thinking about a nest and a family, your goldfinches look wonderful. Have a good weekend. 😊ReplyDelete
I hope the birds will be okay in this weather, they keep popping in for top ups to get them through the night. Perhaps nest building is on hold for a while. It's great to have the Goldfinches. Have a lovely weekend:)Delete
You seem to be getting a lot more snow than down here. Just a little sleety stuff and a whole lot of rain so far.ReplyDelete
Lots of snow and less rain here, that would be good to wash the snow away as long as it doesn't freeze. Lets hope after this cold spell Spring will really be on the way:)Delete
Burrrr, looks cold, but I think I can tell the white stuff is melting so there's hope. I've never seen a Goldfinch with a red bill. Beautiful! We had to stop with our bird feeders in our community, as we were having too many un-wanted varmits as a result and the city is trying to control things. Enjoy all your birdies.ReplyDelete
The Goldfinches are very pretty birds but they do scrap with each other. We have Grey Squirrels on the feeders too and they do take a lot of food from the birds:)Delete
