January 2010 - Snow in Sarkarchway in snowtower in snow

Snow is rare in the Channel Islands and rarer still in Sark but early on January the 5th the island turned white as a couple of inches fell in as many hours. Here at la Seigneurie Gardens many of the less hardly plants were already protected but the unusual cold snap had the gardeners running around to wrap up other vulnerable plants and keep the greenhouses warm. It may have caused some concern but, as you can see from the pictures, the Gardens looked beautiful under their light blanket of snow and by late afternoon most of it had melted.
