I woke up yesterday morning to find about 3 inches of snow on the car, just as forecast. This was the scene at 7.30 in the morning.

“Brilliant!”, I thought, “Hursley in the snow, that will look fantastic!”. So I grabbed my cameras and headed down to the lab.
As I drove down the M3, the snow became shallower, and the precipitation more sleety.
By the time I got to Winchester, there was still a light covering of snow, but not much. I hurried round to the lawn to see what shots I could find. Just before 9, Hursley House looked like this.
Clearly, the warm January had fooled the flowers into making an early start. Appropriately, there were snowdrops.
