I don't ever remember snow this early in the year. According to the news it is the first time that it has snowed in London in October since 1934.
It was cold last night so the snow was still here when we woke up this morning. It was a bright sunny day and the countryside looked beautiful.
When it snows in winter the trees look pretty with their bare branches outlined in snow. Now the trees are still in leaf so there is a strange mixture of autumn colour and snow. This beech tree looked stunning in the sunshine.
The leaves of the oak trees were all frozen, I expect they will fall quickly now.
In the bright sunlight the icicles on the twigs were melting rapidly but the shade temperatures were cold today and there is still quite a covering of snow in the garden.
