I've never seen the house and barn in snow.
It does occasionally snow in Galicia but with the warming effect of the Atlantic spreading as far in land as A Pontenova, it is very rare for anything but the lightest of light frosts.
When we visited last week, our neighbour Oskar told me that we'd had a proper covering back in March, and he's just e-mailed me the photographic evidence. I hope that he won't mind me sharing the pictures with you.
I'm a little envious that I wasn't there to take some photos myself, but rather pleased I didn't have to risk life and limb on the winding road up to Liñeiras in a pokey little hire car with almost bald tyres.
It certainly looks a lot different to the overgrown jungle which we encountered last week.
