Winter Lingers

It seems as though the snow will never go and with parts of Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and England struggling with upto 20ft drifts (no joke) it seems like the new year is keeping up with the dismal weather of 2012.......

Even our houses have not escaped the harshness of winter.

The path to the old Orchard covered in the white stuff.

The suffering sheep.
With some 4000 lost due to the bad weather, farmers face another harsh year....

And, when the snow isn`t falling, its the cold frosty nights that greet everyone.

Oh well, spring will arrive soon, we live in hope!

  1. Sorry to hear that spring hasn't arrived there yet either. Our snow hadn't yet melted and we got another snowstorm last night, 4-5 inches. Can't believe this is April! Love those sheep, and the photo makes me want to bring them all out of the snow and into my house. Lambing season must have been horrid this year.

    Thanks for stopping in at Cranberry Morning.
