Snow in August


Those of us who see so little of the stuff in the course of our daily lives can afford to be thrilled. For those living further south, and especially earthquake-hit Christchurch dwellers, this must be the last thing they need.
But, oh, it's lovely. My garden is a fairyland. And when it started falling in big thick slow flakes on Sunday, I rushed outside to welcome it.
