This isn't supposed to happen in April

I was convinced that the evidence of the huge snowflakes that fell last night would have vanished by the time I got up this morning, so what a shock to see the fields and common covered in snow. I know that Scotland has had some terrible conditions and this is nothing compared to that but this is Staffordshire and I wasn't expecting to see this in April.
So with the risk of boring you all with yet more pictures of snow I had to document it.




And even the hawthorn hedge didn't provide enough shelter for these helebores 


I had to go out for most of the day, needless to say the blue sky has vanished behind grey clouds and all the snow has been washed away by the rain, so back to normality again.
