You Wanted Snow!

By Lillian  
The look on the Great Crested Grebes face say's it all.

Annette and I braved the snow that was coming down
and made our way to the lakes 2 minutes from my home
set up umbrellas for protection, and sat freezing
but adrenalin kicked in and soup to warm us
was brilliant and very memorable day

Had one of the wardens come over to ask ..
"have you got a key to get out? as need to lock gates"
Not a problem, had a key!
with no one around to disturb us or the birds

Hope that you all having a safe and warm time

Smashing to see the snow falling around them, Lillian and I wonder if they found it great to see the snow falling around you two? Smile
Always interesting to see the 'behind the scenes' image that you often share with us. Looking forward to seeing more.

Best wishes,
