All week it’s been the same story: snow everywhere. I didn’t realise just how thoroughly the snow had covered the whole of Britain until I saw this Nasa photo on the BBC website. (Visit the BBC website for a much larger version of this amazing photograph – and you might also spot that, over to the left, Ireland still looks green.)
Even before this week, it felt like we’d had our share of snow this winter. I have been going everywhere in my wellies, and I’ve seen children being taken to school on their sledges (that was while the schools were still open, many are now closed).
The weather has brought unusual visitors to our garden (fieldfares and redwings), and we’ve been doing our very best to try to keep the birds fed – I’ve had to keep ordering more bird food. If you have a garden, please try to put a bit of food out for the birds – the RSPB have some good advice on helping Britain’s birds through this cold snap.
Wherever you are, I hope you’re keeping warm!
