Not quite Switzerland..


This was Saltaire early one morning last week.  It's very unusual for us to get snow as late as April, when the trees are greening up.  We had a sprinkling even in the valley, but the heavier fall up on Hope Hill took a few days to melt away.  It looked quite pretty behind the mill.  Not quite Switzerland but still pretty.

  5. The fact that it is unusual makes the view even more beautiful than Switzerland!:o)

    I was born in 1933 at Malham, on April 24th. It snowed.
    The first thing my mother saw that morning was 2 inches of snow on the blossoming Pear tree. Thats why I was called Peter
