Snow started to fall late yesterday evening and we woke up to a fairly light sprinkling across our neighbourhood. However, not far away it was much worse and the bad weather continues to cause difficulties for those needing to travel.
Any sort of gardening is impossible. The roses that have been blooming continuously throughout the year and producing the only colour in the Winter garden look bedraggled.
At least the pelargoniums that my husband keeps and propagates in the covered yard ready to plant out at a suitable time are surviving. We remember that the snow is only be to expected at this time of the year, that there are bulbs pushing up out of the ground and will eventually bloom and the weather will improve as the weeks go by.
