Snow in Blackmore at Megarrys Antiques and teashop.

Will this cold never end??  I used to love the snow when I was younger but now    EUGH……. Blackmore  village and Jericho cottage Garden look really pretty after another snowfall last night.

 

The pond is still frozen, but the trees are dripping now!!Lets hope it doesn’t freeze again tonight!

There are now about 30 ducks on the village pond this morning all clamouring to be fed every time anyone goes past

Blackmore pond . too cold even for the ducks

……..Poor things are slipping and sliding on the ice!
On that subject…………. A moan . Why in the name of heaven don’t all shopkeepers and Business owners clear the snow from their fronts??? I’ve done ours with the help of one of my staff last week , but today did it myself again(despite a bad back and new knee) and spread rock salt . I’d never forgive myself if one of my customers fell .                                                                                                                              I was horrified earlier in the week………………….

… the snow hadn’t been cleared outside our local surgery.I’ve reported it to the powers that be at Chelmsford County council Brentwood Borough Council and the local parish council Hopefully one of them will take responsibility before someone has a nasty accident!

Cant wait till it’s all gone so more of my customers can get out and come to the teashop for a warming Hot chocolate or Soup and roll!!Spring is just round the corner!!!
