Bethan taking in the unusual scene - a white garden
We woke to overnight snow, as did most of the country.
The forecast for Cumbria was that snow was possible but heavy falls would be confined to the Pennines and the East Coast
Today though, there was more than we expected, and the scene was delightful.
Harry out for a morning stroll.
Behind him, Whiteside lives up to it's name.
Picture postcard stuff as I glimpse over the hedge to Mellbreak and Hen Comb.
The Red Phone Box - have I ever told you it's a Grade 2 Listed Building ?
Up the road, Rose Cottage and the Vicarage . . . Guess which one is available for holiday lets !
There's sufficient snow to turn everything white.
The roads are covered but it's melting now in the sunshine.
Back to Plan A and a trip into Cockermouth for essentials in case the snow lasts.
The view back up Lorton Valley on our return includes the misty outline of Hopegill Head, Whiteside and Grasmoor.
