It’s been snowing all day today pretty much in Hoylake. Before 7am there was quite a nice blanket of clean, white snow everywhere but by 9am it was well on its way to morphing into rather wet, off-white slush. Not nice really. Especially as my trusty B&Q wellies have started to leak.
I was in Lake Place at around 3pm today and this lovely little cottage garden caught my eye. Seems to me that the daffs have given up the battle with the strong easterly wind and the snow!
I’ve featured Lake Place before and in this post from 2009, there’s a comment that confirms that there was a pub (or “beer house”) called The Pig & Whistle in Lake Place. The pub was apparently the headquarters of the Loyal and Ancient Order of Shepherds …fascinating local history! There’s a drink in it for anyone who can send me a photo of The Pig & Whistle.
