On the third big swing of the weather yo-yo we had two and a half days of quite mild temperatures again and rain that washed all the snow away. This morning it was sunny and almost warm, so I went out to get some early before-the-season pictures of the garden. Unbelievably the snow was all gone, even in the shade of the trees.
My favourite view in our garden, down the old fencerow past the deck chairs where I sometimes eat lunch in the summer. Almost all the garden you can see in the foreground will be Hostas come late spring.
Meanwhile, the temperature plunged about 10°C over 5 hours starting after lunch today, accompanied by a lot of fierce winds as the cold front went through. Now we're back to light snow flurries, and projected freezing weather for at least another week, the 4th bounce of our yo-yo weather!
