Wintry weather...

I thought you might like to see a very chilly picture of the garden taken early this morning. The forecasters were right about us having more snow yesterday; it was snowing when we got up and it was still at it when we went to bed. There’s only been a few inches but it's all very pretty and lends an entirely different look to the garden.

It has to be said that as a country we’re absolutely rubbish at dealing with weather; it’s either too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry or, as in today's case, too much snow. The airports are in chaos and as usual the teachers are using the weather as a poor excuse to have a day off with over 5000 schools across the country closed. It never used to happen when I was a nipper - I wonder what they'd do if the weather was really bad...?

Warming foods are the order of the day at the moment so I made some Leek and Potato soup (probably my all-time favourite) for lunch and a Chilli sans Carne for dinner. That should defrost our pipes!
