Looking at the snow from Lletty Cottage

Saturday February 7

Quite heavy snowfalls during the night have turned the garden into Narnia. Opening the back door first thing this morning,  to let Maisie (our cat) out  fox, rabbit  and bird prints could be seen criss crossing the garden  and the birds were  already queuing up at the bird tables for their breakfast.

Mid morning the sun came out and  defrost started..dripping taps, gutters, trees..all the sparkly gone and rather slushy, grubby mess left.

In the afternoon with sun shining and snow rapidly disappearing we decided to go for a walk  to Abermarlais  just down the road.

Along the banks of the river running through Abermarlais there are drifts of snowdrops- today it was hard to see the snowdrops for the snow!
