A Snow-filled Wonderland

I used to have some Jamaican friends in London who took in their nieces from back home. The two girls were about 7 and 8 and arrived in summer, but what they were most excited about was seeing snow on Christmas Day, still five months in the future. Their Christmas stories and Christmas cards had always showed snow, but they had never seen any.

Since it is really spring and the current colder spell is just an aberration, I can admire the results of the first new fall of snow without trepidation, both in the garden:

And on the way to the shop, where the road was still good enough for cycling by both the brave and the foolhardy (in the distance on a moped).
