Entry for April 06, 2008 – Snow in London

Posted by HelenEdith on April 6, 2008

We had snow in London today! That’s the first snow I’ve seen all winter – and it’s supposed to be spring now, anyway. (Stephen saw some one morning a couple of weeks ago, but it had all melted before I got up.)

A jay was visiting our garden today and taking advantage of the food that Stephen puts out for the wild birds. Both the grain on the ground and the peanuts in the feeder came in for attention. When the jay used the peanut feeder, it then took the peanut up into the pear tree to eat it.

I think that the picture encapsulates today quite well: pear blossom covered in snow, and with a jay sitting on the branch of the tree.
