Snow in April? This was the view from my office window at 6 a.m. this morning. Flurries of snow and rooks. Snow-capped old privies. And cold. Brrrrrr. Not April showers as we usually know them. May your Saturday be warmer. Share this:PrintTumblrPinterestMoreFacebookTwitterLinkedInLike this:Like Loading... Related

Cold, but these images look beautiful, a place to be at i would say? 🙂
What lovely painterly photos – and the rooks cohabiting with snow in that pointillist sky.
And now 2 hours later the sun is almost out and the snow melting, and I’m wondering how my potted on seedlings have fared. Hardened off I thought they were, but I don’t think they were expecting snow. And thank you for that very fine description of my photos, Meg.
J’s just started gardening for friends of our daughter, so he’s back to weather watching bigtime.
I agree with the painterly photos comment – we had a frosty few mornings and my rose of sharon shrub was hit hard – but I think it is fine…
Although I feel sorry it’s still so cold, and snowing, these photos are beautifully composed.
Thank you, Lucile.
😀 you’re welcome, Tish. Have a lovely weekend.
I would have sent you sun but it’s raining here. Would you do with some wetness?
Happy weekend Tish
Oh, no more wetness, thanks Noel. We had that yesterday. I guess your long rains have started.
Yes, and they fall sometimes at the worst of times
Brrh you’ve made my legs go cold!
Sorry about that, Gilly.
Lovely images, but I don’t envy you the snow. May it be short-lived and followed by days of sunshine.
All these good wishes are certainly doing the trick. Only a few little clumps of snow left on the lawn. Happy weekend, Su.
You too Tish.
Great painterly images, definitely a tad impressionistic – I agree with Meg’s comment. Hope your young plants survive, Tish
I went out in my nightie and dusted off the pots. They didn’t seem too unhappy so fingers crossed.
Your views are truly beautiful but as I sympathize with you about plants and well …cold, I am sending you warm rays of sun, which on the other hand we oddly seem to have in abundance for this time of year! 😉
Thank you for your warm rays, Marina. I think they’re working 🙂
🙂 🙂 GOOD!!!! 🙂
What a surprise, I don’t think! Very fetching though.
Yes, just to keep us on our toes, Sarah. (Cold ones at that). The weather these days has us totally confused.
Especially love the first image.
Thank you, Philip. Very different from your neck of the woods 🙂
It’s not so rare , it seems…
The first photo fascinates me!
Wonderful photographs with that vintage feeling.. here is cold and rainy… It has been like that for the whole week, and seems to be it will last another one… 😦 Alas!!! What can we do!
More vests is all I can say 🙂
Gorgeous photos Tish, but snow in April?! Ugh!
Indeed. Even now it’s melted there’s a freezing wind.
Makes for beautiful photos, but I’m glad we seem to be finished with that sort of winter-not-going-peacefully weather. Yesterday actually felt like spring, today’s more like summer. I have all the windows open and really don’t want to do anything but read while sipping tea. (I had a nice walk after the farmers market this morning.)
That sounds blissful, Janet. Now as I’m writing this at 7.30 pm we are having brilliant sunshine too. All seasons in one day.
It’s COLD out there, campers! Well, it’s darned cold out this way also… but no fresh snow in the hills, probably due to lack of precipition… more examples of global warming?
Well something’s in a real pickle, El Nino fall out or otherwise. Of course Sarah Palin is claiming global warming is all nonsense. Whoever let her loose…
Lovely photos. The ”grainy” effect gives an Olde Worlde feel. Winter is creeping ever closer down here too.
The mercury hardly got above 24c today!
You may blow a raspberry now. *smile*
Am blowing. Am blowing. Sun today though, but v. cold.
Well, look on the bright side – it’s snuggly weather!
We had two little snows this month too. Very pretty, but I’m glad it’s over!
I had heard that there was snow in Shropshire. We had a few early morning showers and one of hailstones along with a bitingly cold wind, but no snow. Just a beautiful blue sky day… but your photos are lovely.
It’s gone now. This morning we have wall to wall blue and not a single cloud, but very cold. Hope all is well in the southwest.
yep, it has snowed in our Pyrénées, too… but we rarely have some snowflakes in Toulouse, every 3-4 years… even though the mountains are about 1h1/2-drive from here! 🙂
Oh no, snow!!! your poor seedlings. Did they survive? But it does make for a lovely photo op. I agree with Meg’s comment.
The plants do seem to have survived. Very brave of them 🙂
They must be tough…
