Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Hi! Did you think we had become buried under the snow!! Well, almost! We still have pretty much no Internet access, the best we have got is what we can eeek out of a mobile phone connected to a PC, and let me tell you, that is not a lot! I have managed to get some photos up of the scenery around our way.
Rocco - unimpressed with the cold feet!

This is the road leading to our house. It looks pretty clear, unfortunately this isn't the way we need to drive, we need to go the other way which for some reason never gets cleared!

The Holly tree that gave up some of its wares for our wreath!

Monty finds the best way to deal with deep snow and cold feet is to run as fast as he can!

Looking down the hill, the fence posts were half buried at this point - it got worse!

I just like this tree! I think it may be literally on the cards for next years Xmas Cards!

Looking down our field.

And the field again..
We have now got the Sky dish fitted (only took us 3 weeks!) but apparently it can take up to 15 days till we get Internet - but hopefully soon my little chums! We certainly have some upcoming events in the garden, for soon we shall select our fruit bushes and fruit trees!
This has been put off as at present we would have to dig through an extra couple of feet of snow to create some suitable beds, but I think we may have to bite the bullet and get on with it, snow or no snow!
I have also subscribed (or rather got a subscription as an Xmas Present) to Grow Your Own Magazine (oh yes), which as a subscription gift came with several packets of seeds, possibly 10. So, this year we will see the Grow Your Own - Garden! I will plant out all the seeds that came with it and you will be able to follow its progress! More on that to come! The magazine often gives out free seeds too so I will add them to the Grow Your Own - Garden as they arrive! This is buy no means a paid advert or anything but I adore this magazine and anyone looking for a good read (in the UK although I expect you can get overseas subs) should take a look at it!

Well, Happy New Year everyone, and thanks for being patient with my updates, they will become more frequent as soon as possible!


  1. Wow, someone from Scotland found her way to my blog. How exciting! I did not know Scotland got snow. We're really in the deep freeze here in Missouri.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed this post - especially the kitties in the snow. You're right, that tree is beautiful!
    Hope you get internet soon.

  3. Donna - Yeah, we used to get snow like this all the time and often worse (it is currently worse both North and South of us here!) But in recent years we just haven't seen it, it usually just rains.

    Staci - I'll be visiting regularly. I am quite fancying taking a photo of that tree in all the seasons, 1 down, 3 to go!

  4. Here in Lincolnshire we still have snow - been 3 weeks now and I getting fed up with it. Just used to the usual couple of days where everything grinds to a halt, and then goes. Hope you get your internet connection sorted soon.

  5. Poor old Rocco...I have two cats that like the snow and one that hates it!!! Nothing much is happening around here apart from we are trying to keep warm....Looking forward to you getting the internet sorted so you can blog more...stay warm and safe...take care xxx


I'd love to hear what you think! Please leave a message!
