A Reminder It's Still Winter

After a few mild days and bulbs coming into flower it was all too easy to think spring might be here but Thursday was a reminder that it's still winter. Thursday turned out to be the coldest day of the month with the thermometer struggling to get much above freezing. Oddly for such a cold day it didn't actually fall below freezing.
Temperature Record for 09 February 2017
It was dull and cloudy all day without any hint of brightness with a high temperature of 2.8°C (37.0°F) and a low of 0.9°C or 33.6°F.

We didn't get any of the threatened snow showers through the day but overnight into Friday we had the merest hint of a few snowflakes around the garden.
Other plants were surrounded with something between snowflakes and ice. The forecast doesn't improve much over the next few days. Any precipitation on Friday and through the weekend could fall as either snow or rain. We'll soon find out.
