Bye Bye Snow

The first week of April, I took this photo on my walk to work … and was rather struck by the lone mitten stuck next to the sidewalk – looking to be found. I showed the photo to my friend Carolina Read and she wrote a kind and hopeful poem …


Yesterday morning (15 April 2017), I took this photo of the last bit of snow in the back yard. When I looked  again after eating lunch, it was gone. Click on photo to enlarge.




  1. I like that image of the mitten waving until it’s found…
    I hope spring has finally arrived on your island, Elly 🙂 We’ve had some unseasonably warm days, recently, and the bluebells are in flower earlier than usual.


  2. Love the image and the words – with all their multiple meanings. Glad your snow has finally gone or moved away – for me the first sign of spring are when the wood anemones light up the ancient woodland just ahead of the bluebells. Enjoy your crocuses and other signs of spring. 🙂


    • Thanks, Valerie. I’ll make sure Carolina sees your comments too 🙂 Wood anemones … I just googled an image …I’m not sure if we get those or not, but I will keep my eyes open. We don’t have your amazing bluebells, so it’s good to share the news of our springs xxx
