Old-fashioned winter

After a dull near-freezing weekend, there was snow lying on Monday morning, in a day of sunshine and showers.

Tuesday, bright, sunny and sub-zero; so when we went on the weekly lunchtime walk, rather than staying on paved ways, we came to the bridlepath that has been too muddy all last year, and it was white with firm trodden-down snow. So we made an unexpected off-piste diversion.

Wednesday was back to about freezing, and dull, leaving lots of slush in shaded places; today, the same.
