*******************************Snow is still falling

Just as spring was promising the first crocusses and the snowdrops were barely out we had another load of snow today. At first it looked as if it was going to melt straight away but at lunchtime it started snowing again and now we have a good couple of inches. As usual I could not resist taking some pictures this morning, it was also a good test for my new camera. Enjoy....

Our 2 cats enjoyed themselves for a few hours, they love playing in the snow

A thrush waiting for lunch, normally they are very shy but with this cold weather they have joined the usual garden visitors. I gave her and the other birds dried fruit, nuts, some fat and fresh water, they need all the help they can get in these cold conditions.
