 51: Don't throw away that sledge just yet 

Despite the best efforts of the propagandists, the sky still goes white and we still wake up to find snow all over the place. That global warming desert hell is still just a fantasy.

 52: Snowapples! 

Here's something you don't see often; unpicked and abandoned apples, upon which snow has landed and settled.

 53: Winter won't go away 

Three years later, we're still getting snow at the start of the year, even if it is not being a nuisance when people are travelling around at Xmas. Sometimes, however, there is barely enough to make a snowman!

Sometimes, the weather makes more of an effort. This is a view up Carlton Avenue, looking toward the golf course.

And this is Romiley Park on the same day:

 54: "Whose dog is that in our back garden" 

Urban foxes have been spotted in the village but usually at night. This one just strolled in to a back garden during the afternoon, parked itself in a sunny spot for a while and then strolled off again.

 55: Anyone spot which way it went? 

There was a shower of what looked like snowflakes on a July afternoon. Has the weather gone crazy? we asked ourselves. But the 'snow' turned out to be white feathers and not too long afterwards, a very grumpy looking young hawk was spotted perched on the fence, looking like it had failed to catch a collared dove for lunch.
