Well you have snow leopards so why not snow larks? They must go somewhere in the winter though whether they stay here I do not know.
Anyway this is the Winter Palace in St Petersburg in the snow but an old image as the weather there this week is much the same as here, give or take a degree or two. Hardly a frost even according to the BBC, though this is what Napoleon found on his long march back from Moscow - that it didn't get really cold until the end of November. Good job my book didn't properly begin until January or there would have been no snow for Vladimir and Elizabeth to go riding in.

Fennie's Avatar I should add that it was the first frost of the year last night (here at least) though I have only just noticed which means that it was probably an air rather than a ground frost. Nevertheless I thought it worth recording. Usually the first frost is a good two weeks earlier than this. Global warming again. Shocked

Camilla's Avatar Thank you kindly Fennie for posting for the snow LarksVery Happy this wee Owl could not get a connection on PC and battery on iPad needed charging then lack of sleep scooped me off to dreamland.

Love the pic, that's what I call snow, just imagine galloping across the fields on a horse in the snow, heaven! Then on return a cup of Russian coffee deep and strong with a dash of brandy to warm the cockles Very Happy

Quite frosty too here last night Fennie and today bitterly cold but still no snow.

Cadfael's Avatar Yes a bad frost here. The last of our lovely flowers have gone dark and wilty just from a nights frost.

Ivy's Avatar when the roses are near the house they have a remarkable ability to survive frost. I have several roses still in bloom despite frost and even the first snow on Saturday.

Camilla's Avatar Ah that is probably why mine are in bud then Ivy as this rose is near the house.
