Snow in France

For once the Outer Hebrides seems to be getting marginally better weather - or perhaps I should say marginally warmer weather - that the rest of the UK and certainly than a great deal of Northern Europe.  So when I received these photos from a friend, Viv, who live in the Lot-et-Garonne I tried to match them with photos from similar spots taken during the early autumn this year.  I didn't have any direct comparisons but these provide some idea of the change a few months can make.  Thanks Viv.







I have no comparison for the road to the house but it's such a beautiful photo I couldn't leave it out!

  4. I'm familiar with that kind of change but I bet it feels even stranger in France.

  5. We had 60+ inches of snow last year and I am guessing about 12 inches this winter. I didn't miss it.

    BTW, thanks for including the garden shot. I found it very interesting.
