It snowed heavily here over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of March. In the past the snow seemed almost rare and as soon as it appeared I got the camera out, but the last few years it’s become almost commonplace!
However today is April 3rd and the snow is still with us, so after a rather chilly walk in the wintery sunshine (even though it is technically Spring) I am posting some photos.
Our walk was along the High Peak Trail, a disused railway line set above Wirksworth in Derbyshire.
Occasionally the trail runs through an old railway tunnel, today though I noticed that the snow had been blown almost halfway through the tunnel
and the roof had loads of icicles.
I watched a small bird throwing moss around, busy looking for food no doubt and I admit I felt glad that I have a nice warm house to go back to.
Despite the cold it was so beautiful that it was tempting to stop and gaze over gates and fences.
A couple of hours outside was enough for me and I am now hoping for Spring and hopefully a Summer this year that lasts longer than a couple of weeks!
Just when I thought the wintry weather was gone and it was safe to travel, it happened again!
The weather forecast had warned us to expect snow from 4pm, it came so much later that i honestly assumed it had passed us by. Luckily I had pulled onto my drive before the worst happened.
At Angel Eden we haven’t published any snow pictures recently but I took these after midnight and thought I’d share them
And this was the front garden looking a bit like fairy land!
Just a quick post to wish you all a very happy Valentine’s Day!
I’m not sure about love but frost has certainly been in the air of late and if that isn’t a good enough reason to snuggle up to someone then I don’t know what is!
Out and about the other day we took quite a few frosty pics near a canal. It was so cold that there wasn’t much time for hanging about to compose the perfect shot, but I think they are pretty none the less. It’s also a great opportunity to remind yourself that cold weather may be inconvenient at times, but it can also be very beautiful.
As ever I am looking forward to spring and all the wonderful fairs and events on the calendar. On that note, there’s still a couple of days left to win tickets to the Country Living spring fair, so make sure you’ve left a comment on the competition post to enter. I shall pick the winners later on this week.
Wherever you are I hope the weather has turned a little milder for you now. Even if you are not in the mood or position for romance have a wonderful evening whatever your plans!
