I woke up to..
I opened my eyes this morning to large a storm of snow flakes peering through the venetian blinds in our bedroom. I was so shocked that I got out of bed and checked the time - it was only 8:30am and it was snowing. I quickly whipped out my camera and snapped a few shots and then went to our living area which faces a garden and stuck my head out the window for more shots. I sat by the window, completely mesmerised, taking in as much of the scenery as I could.
40 minutes later I found myself snuggling back into bed at 10 past 9 because the shock of seeing snow had dissipated and the drowsiness from waking up so early had crept up and taken over my body.
I'm just finishing off my breakfast by the window and I still can't believe it's snowing/ed. I was hoping it would snow all day but I doubt this will happen as the snow is starting to melt. (Golf) balls of snow drop are starting to drop off the branches. The snow storm stopped 1/2hr ago and the snow piles on the fence has all but disappeared.
I guess all good things must come to and end.
Incidentally, breakfast was Baked egg on toast and Greek Yoghurt with strawberries drizzled with honey. No egg on toast photo here as I had already scoffed it all before I decided to take a photo to share my experience.
