Proper Snow at Last


I've been watching all the snow reports from the UK
and hoping that Mike would make it back okay,
which he did.
Thank goodness!
Yesterday we took a walk along the river as usual
and saw that the level of the river was high.
It was raining steady, and what snow we had
was thawing.
Today when we took our usual route to the river,
we found our path flooded.
Not only the path
but a large expanse of area
was under water.
I've shown the view below before
when people have been waiting for a boat.
Now I know why the benches, bins and playground are removed over winter!


Last night,
it snowed properly,
making everything very pretty.


So after the hounds had finished their walk,
I went back out and had a walk through the allotments near to our house.


And snapped away.


Well I had been missing out on all that snow
everyone has been experiencing in the UK.


I wonder what tomorrow will bring?

Oh, that snow is beautiful! We have yet to have a proper snow. I'm hoping for tomorrow. It will be good for getting me into the Christmas Spirit.
Hope you have a great week!

My goodness... just look at all that snow.

Your photos are absolutely beautiful and have me once again dreaming for a white Christmas (the reality is that in Australia over the festive season it's going to be hot, humid and icky).
