There’s snow place like winter

As winter slowly slowly melts away…

It’s good to look back and see it was a good year for snow noses –

Snow on nose

And snow moustaches.

No matter who you are

Or what you look like,

A bad hair day can be much improved

By adding some extra sparkle and snow!

I’m off to Paris with my daughter for a few days, so please excuse me if I don’t visit you.

Snow blossoms

There is something so delightful

About the bright light of spring

And the cold of a lingering winter.

If you look carefully, you can find snow moons

Dancing on the snow.

And instead of flowers,

We have snow blossoms

And dazzling light.

And – just as in real life –

You might be lucky to find

A diamond in the rough.

Expectancy

You never know what might be waiting for you

Over the brow of that hill you’re struggling to climb;

(Can you see Oscar waiting for me?)

Oscar waiting

Or what small delights await

Around the corner.

Wait for me

Please forgive me if I don’t get around to visiting you this weekend.

We’re having problems with the Internet, which makes it incredibly slow and painful to visit blogs at the moment.

In the meantime, pay a visit to: Camera Critters.


The many shades of cold

Since we’ve had fresh snow and sinking temperatures –

Down to minus 19 C this week –

I am inspired to show you the colours of cold.

Cold fog

Sometimes the cold is a golden fog,

Sometimes an intense orange framed by trees.

When the dawn is really cold,

The fingers of the sun paint the treetops

With frosted red.

Cold and orange

My favourite winter colour

Has to be the diamond carpet of snow

Topped off by dazzling blue skies and sun –

It’s moments like these that lift my spirits.

Spring Schpring!

People want to know if I’m tired of winter and longing for the spring.

The answer is no.

Snow dazzle copy

Late winter is a fabulous time of dazzling sun;

Of lacy art made out of ice and rainbows:

Art

Of exhilarating days of trees made out of curtains of lace.

Curtain of lace

It’s still minus 14C when we wake up

Making it pleasant to walk on the iced over lake

To enjoy the sight of sunken boats and endless blue skies.

Sunken boat

The secret to happiness is not to long for something you don’t have

But to enjoy fully what you do have.

There’s snow business like snow business

Life doesn’t get much better than this:

Freezing mornings with glitter and diamonds;

Diamonds and dog

A good long walk in the thick snow

And plenty of play and smiles.

No one snows this better than Oscar.

(OK – I know I’m on thin ice here, so snow more puns!)

True grit, love and snow

A girl, an Icelandic horse and a snowstorm.

For me, this embodies stoicism,

Spirit, true grit

And love.

Frosted freedom

For nearly three weeks,

My world has been wrapped

In shades of silver and grey.

Frosted freedom copy

I can never get enough of

One of my favourite winter scenes –

Silver-haired trees

And hoar frost on birdhouse and bridge.

Frosted view copy

The scene has both thrills and beauty

When a sudden snow shower

Sprinkles Oscar, my dog, with diamonds of snow.

Snow fairies

I love it when the snow fairies come to visit:

Turning pine trees into candles;

Snow candles copy

Decorating reeds

With garlands of ice –

Ice crystals

And giving them hair-dos

Made out of spiky crystals.

Spiky copy

The sunlight filters through

Icy fairy art to warm a long-forgotten leaf

Filtered sunlight

And to remind us that we are intertwined –

Together, we can make

The mundane magic.
