Wings and a magic wand turn a little girl into a colourful garden fairy. The wand proved useful for poking at ice in the water butts and making star shapes in the snow.
We found some tracks in the snow that I think were made by a pheasant. E was quite interested to see where it had wandered around. The joy of an iPad and the internet meant we could then go inside and check out lots of pictures of similar snow tracks.
By Sunday morning most of the snow had melted away but it was still fun to explore - and surprisingly warm in the sunshine.
