Although it’s winter, when sleet or snow would have been more normal, we’ve had a surprising number of summery-type storms, where small hail falls. Not for long, but often.
The horses don’t like it, but it doesn’t do any actual damage, so I just enjoy the visual effect while it lasts.
My naturalised snowflake bulbs – which I called ‘snowdrops’ as a child – seem to be made for such a white dotted setting.
They don’t often get the chance for a real snow backdrop.

Dear DWG, we are being drenched at present: over 100m yesterday (4 inches), cold and wild and windy too; perhaps a breath of Gustav?
Sharyn, it’s a Friday afternoon here and the U.S. Mail just delivered my book ordered just a week ago. With all the bad weather we have had in the last week in the southern US which is where I am, I really did not expect it so soon.
Am very anxious to get started on it… which I plan to do shortly. It’s a rainy day here and just
perfect for that. By the way I love the snow drops… and weather all over is beyond my understanding. Hail in winter is not something we see often.
