While most of you have been out delighting in the new buds of spring, Sweden has been celebrating in style.
That’s right – someone forget to send Nature the memo about it being spring. Instead, we received several days of snow, blizzards and howling winds.
Which turned out to be a blessing. The anklebiters rushed out in the weekend storm, excited to be a part of creating this great snow sculpture. Don’t you think it looks a bit like Rodin’s Thinker?
It was too dark to take a shot when they had finished, so I crept out with my camera on a glorious sunny morning. (Sir Pe refused to come out in his dressing gown so I could show you just how big this snow sculpture is!)
The view blew away my grumpiness at the lingering winter.
The first blush of dawn on the new snow. The lake with its frosted topping stretching to the church, and beyond that to a sky with a dazzling sun.
As my Edward Monkton card declares:
May the happiness of the Happy Snowman never melt in the WARM and LOVELY garden of your HEART.
