My plant pots have gone up a size

Blogging challenges, North Yorkshire, Weather

When I woke up on Thursday, this is what I found at the doorstep.

Normal life’s been disrupted by the snow, even more than Covid has ruptured our day to day rhythms. I occupied some of my day yesterday by slogging through the snow to bring you these photos.

  1. Oh, my giddy aunt! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Just when our temperatures are getting back to normal, you frighten me with this, Margaret! Very scenic! Ruptured, good one, too ๐Ÿ™‚ Still all there? My daughter said rain this weekend to wash it away. Any news of E?

    1. No, only that their boiler has broken down. Perfect timing. Other than that all well. Just off for a walk now. Thick snow and a temperature of minus 4….

      1. Sorry Sue – very few. It was too damn’ cold to take gloves off for long. I took a few on my phone, but couldn’t see what I was doing and they ended up crooked. It was sunny and bright, so it was lovely to be out. but not good for standing still.

  2. You are the best trudging through the snow for us and taking all these beautiful shots, and all those ups – you are so very clever. be careful though when you go out again today, we don’t want you to slip or slide away

      1. ooh you are good walking that far in snow – the closest I have come to snow hiking in recent years is walking on a beach with soft sand! So glad you dog enjoyed it, which one joined you today?!

    1. It is very Ariegeois snow – deep and crisp and even, so you are right to be jealous. It’s a long time since I’ve experienced snow this good in England. Sorry!

  3. Now that all looks stunning, but I hear that the heavy snow has caused problems further up in the Newcastle area and is disrupting the rollout of the vaccination programme. I can’t image being over 80 and waiting outside in a queue in the snow. Surely not.

      1. I hear there’s been good news this morning with all over 70s being invited for theirs very soon. Mind you my father (87), has had both already, and received a ‘first’ invitation from his surgery this morning inviting him again!! Hope this is a rare muddle, and a data update failure and not repeated across the country. Mind you I am not holding my breath.

      2. Hmm. Well, Malcolm got his invitation for late January this very morning, and I was told I’m in Phase 4, so the chances of that being by mid Feb seem remote to me. So glad your father is safe and done.

      3. Great news for Malcolm. It really is fingers crossed all round at the moment and keep your distance. Nobody wants to be ill when receiving a jab is so close. I am Phase 7 and hoping to have one by Easter when my sister and her family are due to come to Suffolk, if that happens???

  4. You are a star venturing out and taking these photos. Iโ€™m hoping for some rain and cooler weather here โ€” the ground is so cracked and parched ๐Ÿ™

    1. We need to get our ground good and proper mixed up. Fields have become ponds, and tracks quagmires. Walking’s impossible, so snow and frost are extremely welcome. Parched is a word I no longer understand in that context.

  5. Wow, that looks amazing! I hope your outdoor plants survived. They promised snow this morning in London, but not as much as a drop where I live. To compensate we got a non-stop drizzle of rain ๐Ÿ˜ Looking at your photos cheered me up!

  6. I thought you might get a good helping – make that heaping – of snow. I’m glad you took to it like a child and went out for a frolic. It’s slightly unnerving when you go somewhere you often walk so know there are clearly defined paths, but can no longer find them.
