Usually any snow dusts the Derbyshire hills to the west and perhaps the Lincolnshire Wolds to the east but misses out the Trent Valley where we live. But earlier this morning the snow did fall here, at times in thick, fast flurries. A covering of 5 - 10 cm was predicted. And this certainly happened in our garden. The flowering cherry was "hung with snow" quite literally for a change. And the cowslips were braving this last blast of winter. However it's melting quickly now.
