They predicted an amount of 3 to 4 cm. It started to come more as light flurries but beggars can't be choosers and I was thrilled with even this.
The blackbirds have been here in the last few weeks getting their fill of our crab apples. The tree is almost empty and, believe me, it was flowing over with apples. I have used a number of them on my winter table and friends took some yet still there were plenty for the blackbirds to feast on. I guess all that extra body fat is helpful now.
Because it kept coming down heavier and we ended up with this...
In the end, we had 15 cm of snow. It is subzero C temperatures so that means the snow sticks and will stay for a while as the cold is set to last in the coming week. It is glistening out side. It looks like the glitter angels came by and dropped their wares along the way. *grins*
This morning was bustling in our garden as the birds came to have their breakfast. Jos went out and topped up the feeder in the back of the garden. It was busy with finches feeding so our happy couple - Mr. and Mrs. Turtledove - waited patiently in the neighbors trees next to our garden for their turn.
I do love winter!
