BTW great picture and we listened to the song and we both sang along.
Bill Phillips: I will have to photograph that Lady P smile

Oh, I'm longing for snow and a winter walk in December sun like the depictured one- I can feel the fresh, healthy air!
Bill Phillips: I can't say I'm longing for snow as it caused great problems getting to work last year.

"Deep and crisp & even:" well perhaps not quite - more shallow & sprinkly. None the less it looks nice
Bill Phillips: It was a light dusting but enough for me!

Magical Bill
Bill Phillips: It was because most of the trees still had plenty of leaves
A wonderful photograph Bill. A great scene.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Shaun. It was rather lovely to see but very cold!
I'm glad you gave the date - I was afraid winter had come very early.
We have to come back to UK for a week at the end of the month, and it mustn't snow until we come back to Spain. Sheila has spoken! smile
Bill Phillips: It is mild here at the moment and the autumn colours have been lovely. I don't want snow either!
I bet you have got your decorations out already and your inflatable Santa on the roof of your house.
Bill Phillips: The presents are wrapped and the tree is decorated. Like Hell! Before we know it there will be Easter eggs in the shops and hot cross buns

Hold back there young Bill - I am only just beginning to adjust to Autumn! Or are you reminding us how lucky we are with the warm start to November?

Nicely composed shot.
Bill Phillips: I suppose it shows just how unpredictable our weather is.
We may have snow flurries today!!
Bill Phillips: It is mild here and promises to get warmer as the week goes on. Next week they are suggesting it will go a lot colder!
It looks a great place under a scattering of snow Bill.
Bill Phillips: Doesn't it Brian. we walked along that path when Maureen and you came up to Clent
I feel like Christmas shopping now smile
Bill Phillips: not that you needed any excuse to go shoppinggrin

What a joy this is, Bill. I recognise the view from the day I had with with you. Snow on the Clent Hill is unlikely at the moment; its around 17 deg C here and I guess not a lot different there.
Bill Phillips: It has been very mild here Alan. Thought you would recognise it. Could be like this next week though as they seem to think it is going to go much colder next week
A really nice snow scene. The early snow in October 2008 combined with autumn colour was an unusual bonus.
Bill Phillips: It was indeed John. Some of the trees had barely started to turn
I was here this morning before light and heard on the radio that we'd had our first snow. Surprisingly, none stayed on the ground in my community but it did in some. It all melted though since then. We are to have two cold days the Fri will be 15.
Bill Phillips: Sounds pretty chilly!
With those autumn colours, one feels that this is how it should always be!
Bill Phillips: I have to agree! smile
Definitely a pretty scene Bill
Bill Phillips: 100% Choccie box
stunning image,very nice
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Derek
