The snow fell and fell in quantity. The garden remained pristine and the Leyandii were adorned in a thick white coat.

Our other neighbour, the farmer took feed to his livestock as the snow prevented the sheep from being able to feed on grass. The feed was grown on the farm, then baled by the farmer just a couple of months ago. (It has been a difficult growing year because of low temperatures).

The next day, the 4th December was the town’s annual fun day, when many local shops put on a bit of a show and/or offer a small discount on purchases for the day.

A local pharmacy was ‘boarded’ and led by a pirate in full dress who did throw me a dastardly glare while I collected my photographic evidence of his take-over.

In the Gift wares/Do-It-Yourself store, Robin Hood and his merry men were busy. I was served by a buxom Friar Tuck, in the gift department, who was keeping the rest of Robin’s band under surveillance. In the DIY department, I discovered Maid Marian, Robin’s amour, all on her own.
