Last of snow

I'm having a very busy week with three birthdays in the house so if you don't hear so much from me that'll be why!

I have been having a ball getting out and about painting the snow! Mind you, it took me about four hours to warm up after painting this one! Sorry to the Fulbeck ladies that I didn't make it back to the hall but I didn't get this finished until after 1pm! I went in search of remaining snow and as you can see in the background we still have the fog hanging around! I loved the character of this ivy clad tree and think I will return here in another season.
