So snow arrived in Huddersfield on Friday but in nowhere near the quantities that they had in the South-East. But a covering none the less and enough to get on my cat Bob's nerves. He's not a fan!
The Witch hazel, now stands out against the white snow.
My local park, which has been featured on the blog before, was busy with people making the most of the snow, sledging down the few little slopes. The recently created lake is frozen.
But in the midst of the park is a warm haven, the restored conservatory, with its tropical planting, was a delight, and all the better with a pot of tea.
However last night we caught the edge of the snow coming in from the east, it started at 10 o'clock and was still snowing till late this afternoon.Its the most snow I've seen I think since I moved to Huddersfield, this is my 7th winter, about 5 inches of standing snow but deeper in parts where the wind has blown it. As with all the lovely winter scenes that have been posted on my favourite gardening blogs the last few days, its amazing what a transformation it makes on the garden.
