First Snow

The first snow of the winter lies thinly over the fields near Stamfordham

The mild winter finally gave us a little snow.  It was hardly enough to worry about and melted through the day in the warming sunshine, so it was barely even a reminder of winter.  It’s a long way from last winter when snow lasted here for weeks, though we missed it all during our Turks and Caicos trip.

Overall the mild weather has been blamed for all sorts of seasonal oddities but there is nothing locally that seems particularly unusual.  The odd celendine is out in flower but that is to be expected; little else is showing any sign of flowering as yet.

    celandine? We’ve had all sorts of anachronisms in flower here – notably corn cockles last week. Primroses and violets are not so unusual at this time of year.
