It’s no good – I can’t resist. Gotta show you my snow pictures.

Wisley up the road recorded 12″ last night, and I think we’re up to about 16-18″ now. It’s the most snow we’ve had in 18 years (which explains, to you Yanks who regularly hit the two-metre line, why we’re getting so excited about it).

All the cardoon seedheads are wearing white bearskins.

Underneath here somewhere are my patio pots.

And Bob (our resident Roman Emperor) is wearing some very natty headgear.

The pond has stayed clear – just.

And as you can see, it’s still snowing. Hard. Allotment Dog is not impressed, though he does keep trying to eat it (just in case, you understand) and has a good line in snow somersaults.
