Snow day

What an odd day, weatherwise. This morning was bright, sunny and warm. It turned at about lunchtime and by later in the afternoon it was snowing. We don't get snow here much. I used to get ridiculously excited about snow, racing outside to touch, and play. Now I'm happy spectating from the warmth of my house. I cheated with some of these photos and sent Mr B outside. He was thrilled to have another opportunity to go in the snow.
The view down the road. How dreary.
Here is our little house. It will be goodbye soon. This wee house has been very kind to us.
This is the mahonia I said would have to go when we moved in. Hmmm.
I also swore I'd never plant a flax bush after removing one from the front yard. This one is in Miss Dog's play garden.
My front garden.
And the best of all. Mr B in snowy ecstacy. He always manages to make a snowball, no matter how little snow we have.
Oooh, Nigella is on. She is doing a show about puddings. She does sound awfully posh. I wonder if it is like a telephone voice - put on for the cameras. XXX
