Early February Snow

We had a dash of snow in early February after a very mild winter. Branduff is pictured waiting for the school bus outside our Hillside house.

The snow caught the daffodils and crocus by surprise, as some of them had already begun to pop out of the ground and bloom. In fact, a scattering of purple crocus in our lawn were happily drinking in the sunshine only two days before the snow came!

Above is a familiar winter visitor, a robin, having a nibble of sunflower seeds and suet pellets.

Here is a picture of our very own snow dog Sophie. It was bitterly cold outside, yet she was happily lounging in the snow!

Along with the snow, we had below freezing temperatures for about a week. We had to dust off the fireplace and use some of the firewood that had been stocked up in the shed.
