*******************************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.

Oh claire, what wonderful pictures and the last one one of the little thrush is stunning.

Hope the snow doesn't last too long

Claire, I had you in my list all along, I've just not been reading enough blogs lately, it seems. Funny, it doesn't show my name in your followers list...
Anyway, I just wanna say, great photos. Love the ones with the cats, almost monochromatic with a dash of ginger!
