Finding work for idle hands: making, baking and more.

Snowy Saturday November 27, 2010

Filed under: Places to go — lauravw @ 3:07 pm

By the time we woke up this morning, everything in this neck of the woods was covered in snow. Not too much – just a few inches – but enough to make everything white.

It was an odd kind of snow, too – when I went out in the garden this morning and looked at it close up it seemed rather fake, as though it was made of polystyrene.

As they day’s gone on, some of it has melted (from the trees and from the rooftops), but we managed to get to Wollaton Park early enough to see the snow in full effect. I’ve put a set of photos on Flickr.

It’s a beautiful building whenever you visit, but I thought the snow made it look even more old fashioned. I wonder what it was like in Elizabethan times, when this place was built – did the Elizabethans go sledging on snowy days?

Did it snow where you are? Hope you’re keeping warm! I have the luxury of being able to stay in for the rest of the weekend, and it’s nice to know I won’t have to venture out again until Monday morning – though I shall be popping into the garden every few hours to top up the bird feeders.

    It snowed here last Sunday and it was beautiful!! However, all of the rain has washed it away. It’s so nice to be able to snuggle in and not have to be out in it if you don’t want to. Enjoy!

    your photos are lovely Laura. We’ve loads of snow here at the mo, really unusual as were on the east coast (of Ireland) right by the sea so we hardly ever see it even when the rest of the country gets plenty. Hope you got to work ok today, its lovely to look at but can be miserable when one has to actually be somewhere..
