Been snowing all night, stopped at last, just seen a few more little flutters.

The front road/drive before i cleared some of the 4" of snow.

Difficult to perch on these as they have wobbly heads.They really work in our situation, our last one blew down and shattered in a gale.The birds fly by, see them and are discouraged from approaching.The biggest birds, apart from real owls that we have round here, are magpies and they don't like them either.When we installed the previous one, our fainting cat, Spiro, jumped onto the balcony wall, saw it, and passed out with shock...
oh dear - hope he's better with the new one

Its far more likely to snow at Easter than Christmas.

The seasons have shifted a lot, summer is being pushed out and spring is later leaving no room for summer because autumn is setting in early.

It's a big problem for the growers and the farmers as the rains spoil everything and the bad weather means the farmer has to feed his livestock extra food to make up, and thats expensive.

We have had odd weather lately but snow is really very common in March and April yet everyone is surprised by it.

The latest lot of pears that I bought came all the way from Argentina
Hello Moots

It has actually been snowing here like the clappers for the last few hours but its not laying, it hits the ground and disappears, by rights I should be up to my knees in it by now
we have had sort of constant sleety snow, but the snow has stayed on the ground.

That's true - I remember when coming back from Edinburgh after Easter once, my flight was cancelled due to the snow at Birmingham airport. I had to fly to London instead and take a train home, but we got stranded for a long time due to snow on the line

The snow is quite patchy here. Hicky is very close to me in distance (but we have a stretch of water dividing us) yet we often have completely different weather. .

Many years ago, I was in London, in mid April when it started to snow.Returning on the train, we were stuck at Stevenage for nearly 3 hours because of snow on the line and when we eventually arrived back at Newcastle, there were buses slewed all over the roads and a 2-3 hour wait for taxis.

It also snowed very heavily on the day I married my previous husband and that was the end of April.As Honey remarked, it is not that unusual.
I think that, after such a horrid, long, and wet winter, it seems like the last straw.

Don't know why not - we've had snow up here in June.

Indeed......some people seem amazed they get bloomin' snow in December. They must be on the verge of a nervous breakdown it's happening when it's almost spring.

Yes i think that must be the case. People must mentally shrug off the winter when it gets to March.

It has been lovely here today, but really chilly in the shade and now that the sun has set, it is very cold in the house.It has been a longer, colder, and wetter winter for us too compared to usual but we had a longer spell of hot dry weather last summer but bad weather world-wide is cyclical....

It's probably all right coming that far, it's just the roads in the uk that don't move.
With our weather we have to import more and more.

That might be due to gravity Moots.:-)

A few miles can make an awful difference.

Surely you weren't expecting English pears to be ready this early?

you should think yourself lucky really, or do you prefer to struggle though it?

:confused: Surely you weren't expecting English pears to be ready this early? :p

It isn't really a struggle though is it, if you are fit and healthy and live in a city its no big deal and you might as well enjoy it. I certainly do.

All our buds are out too, and it looks like the blossom will come any minute now.

It'll be sometime before they're bearing edible fruit. If you have frosts it could kill off the fruit.

No. Its with the cutbacks. They put the forecasters in rooms without windows and they're buggered!
