    Everywhere we look now, we're seeing signs that winter is giving up it's grip (apologies if you've had snow up north recently) and that spring is taking hold.

    The plants and wildlife on the ground are feeling it too, as adders come out of hibernation to bask in the sun, tadpoles are wriggling in the...

    Well, it looks as if we've seen the worst of the snow for the time being but we could be in for a little bit more on Wednesday.

    Aside from all the chaos the snow causes; it also dramatically alters the landscape - transforming the mundane into something very dramatic.

    I found myself getting repeatedly...

    Well, despite the chaos on the roads on Friday night - we all managed to survive the snow blizzards...just!

    It felt like a scene from 'The Day After Tomorrow' with everyone panicking, schools closing, cars sliding off the roads, traffic jams and planes crash landing into mountain tops.

    Imagine if we...

    Yesterday conditions were perfect for a few waterspouts to form around the coast of Wales.

    One was filmed by a 203 Squadron Sea King, based at RAF Valley as it carried out a training exercise off South Stack lighthouse on the island of Anglesey.

    The crew had spotted another waterspout 40 minutes...

    Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!

    Recently Huw Beynon from Llandeilo encountered a weather phenomenon he had never witnessed before and managed to capture it with his camera.

    This ghost-like image is caused by a unique combination of atmospheric effects which give rise to an illusion called a Glory or Brocken...

    I've been away on holiday, surfing in Donegal, Ireland but the Flickr group has continued to flourish in my absence.

    Here are a few pics which have caught my eye since I've been back.

    For those of you visiting the coast - it's pupping season for grey seals at the moment so tread carefully and you might...

    Ian and Sandra have contacted Derek Brockway this week with a very peculiar photograph.

    Forget Santa - it's far too early to be talking about **** and I've promised myself I won't mention that particular word until at least December.

    So what else comes from Lapland I hear you cry?

    These clouds are actually known as Fallstreak Holes and I've actually blogged about them before.

    Well, we've certainly had our fair share of the wet stuff over the last 24 hours, although I'm not sure we've had enough to fill all the rivers back up to the levels where they should be. Remember the November floods of 2009?

    The rain has certainly brought out the slugs though and my courgettes have taken...

    All this sunny weather is beginning to affect our wildlife. Not only are our reservoirs, rivers and wetland areas drying out - the animals are also starting to go a little bit crazy.

    Keith O'Brien in North Wales snapped this rabbit attempting to go head to head with a large sheep. As expected the rabbit...
