Only a few days ago I took some photos of beautiful crocuses in the nearby park. It was +13°C warm and spring was in the air…
And then suddenly the temperature plummeted. It was snowing sideways for about 24 hours and mayhem on the roads. Some poor souls had to spend the night in their car on the M23 as the motorway was completely blocked with cars and snow. And it was only -1°C!
I thought I’d take some photos in the park before the snow melts away again, and this is what I saw:
I also saw some other signs of spring…
And these things always fill me with horror… as I am allergic to tree pollen!
Looking more carefully at the trees, I spotted a robin!
It was grooming himself and made himself really puffed up to create insulation with his feathers and air to cope with the cold. Then it started to sing for me.
And then it was time to warm up again. Loved this funny pose it did for me.
