Snow!

Snow has been rare here in the English Midlands (The Black Country, to be more precise) in recent years (another sign of global warming), but we had a significant snowfall here today, and the very cold weather meant that the snow lasted all day.

Keeping warm

The iPad battery seems to be well past its best, it’s not holding charge very well and generally needs charging twice a day. I’m falling back on a much older Surface 3 Pro a lot now. It’s larger and heavier, but it has a big advantage in that it it will run a lot more serious software than the iPad.

Flowering

I photographed this succulent soon after it arrived, but since then it has thrown out this shoot, which I suppose must be a flower. Not very attractive, but it is certainly trying.

Winter quarters

A few plants have been moved into the front porch for the next few months – the porch isn’t enclosed, but it does provide some protection, and some plants have survived there in previous years.
