When we got back, we found a few centimetres of snow had fallen. Not being southern softies, this did not cause the "chaos" it did in the south east, and after doing the shopping we went out for a walk in the late afternoon sunshine. This is the old railway line, now a bridleway and footpath.
And here is the scene beside the river (our shadows are bottom left!). A nice afternoon.
Not sure when I will get back to the garden, the soil will be frozen for a while now so instead I will finish the seed order and planning for next year.
