Winter in April

Stopped in some high (by UK standards) mountains, where there were several frozen streams cascading down the mountainside as a series of ice falls. Stunningly spectacular, and not what you expect in mid-April.

Similarly, drove down some lanes in the areas more affected by recent snow. The remains of the drifts at the roadside were still probably about 10 feet or more in places and certainly well above the roof of the car. Again, this is just not supposed to happen in the UK, let alone in April. There seemed to be loads of lambs around, but it must be hard for those farmers who have lost many to see neighbours with whole flocks.
