I'm Dreaming of a...White Easter?

It is now two days since Easter Sunday, and I am still scratching my head over the vision that greeted Sarah and I when we awoke that morning. While blooming daffodils, new-born lambs, and other signs of spring have been evident during the past few weeks, it was a wintery blanket of SNOW that covered the whole of Whalley as we made our way to the village parish church. Not exactlly the traditional view of Easter that one is normally used to.

Staying in touch with my "little boy within," I did construct a snow rabbitt (complete with Bugs Bunny-esque ears) out in our rear garden. Hopefully, my icy artwork wasn't too frightful to the blue finches and robin red breasts that have been beginning to visit us lately.

In between the unseasonable snow and aforementioned new-born lambs, our local Leeds & Liverpool canal system is returning to life as weekend skippers are piloting their brightly painted narrowboats through the twists and turns of its scenic waterways. More subject matter for this ever-roving photographer.
