What a Difference a Day (or two) Makes

Friday was so lovely, sunny and warm that we decided to have our family drawing time out in the garden and sketch a few of the spring flowers. Can’t show you any pictures though as the scanner is playing up for some reason.


“Emily’s Tulip and Grape Hyacinth”

Much fun was also had when not one, but two snails were discovered and both Emily and Isaac spent a long time observing them and fetching cans full of water to keep the snails happy!

We also checked on the tadpoles and they seem to be doing great…

The first part of Saturday was also spent in the garden but the weather soon changed from sunny to rainy, not to mention bitingly cold! Still we did manage to get some seeds sown (to raise indoors) and tidy up the remaining parts of the garden that were crying out for attention.

This morning Isaac dragged me out of bed hideously early to take him to the toilet. When we got in the bathroom he squealed “it’s snowing!” and it was, not only that but it had settled.

This was the first time in over a year that we had had snow to play out in, so of course we had to make the most of it.

  2. The snow pictures are great but I love the ones with the snails. We don’t have land snails like that around here.
