Love in a cold climate

The key to enjoying a cold climate

Is to embrace it.


It finally started snowing and

The neighbourhood echoed with

Happy cries and drawings by children on the cars.


The snow turned everything to silken

Puffs of cotton wool.

(Can you see that big puddle making a heart?)

Heart puddle

It’s still snowing!

And we’re still enjoying

Our dreamy winterland.

Snow and O

    What a nice post after the snow. You live in a wonderland of wonderful people it seems.

  2. Lady…your dog is SO cute. Like your mascot, he is.
    Great photos! You have stellar views anyway. The snow only makes it look that much richer.

  6. Oh how gorgeous… I’m SO jealous!!!! I had to go back to a 2010 picture in order to put a snow picture of our house on Facebook…. We just haven’t haven’t had much snow here in a couple of years… I love snow –and hope that we get some this year… Thanks for the beautiful photos.

    So true. The key to living in a cold climate is to embrace it as children do. However when at times it embraces you back, can tend to get carried away the love fest.

    Wow! You always have “WOW” pictures!

    December 3, 2012 at 17:39

  9. Lovely photos! We haven’t had snow yet. It’s actually going to be close to 70 degrees here today!

    December 3, 2012 at 17:41

  10. It indeed is a wonderland for people like me who never see snow unless we go to the Himalayas!

    December 3, 2012 at 17:46

  11. Send some snow to us! It’s hot and humid here!


    December 3, 2012 at 18:05

  12. I love looking at snow! It makes everything magical! And you’ve recorded that feeling in images.

    December 3, 2012 at 18:22

  13. I miss that fluffy stuff! Wow–great photos of it! Love the “love” theme!

    December 3, 2012 at 19:17

  14. I love snow. We are having unusually warm and dry weather here in Colorado and while it has been wonderful for bicycling, tennis and other warm weather activities, I look forward to playing in the snow. Wonderful pics, as usual!

    December 3, 2012 at 19:24

  15. Of course, it’s easier to “embrace it” if you love it (like my wife) as opposed to hating it (like I).

    December 3, 2012 at 19:40

  16. oh i am jealous…i love snow…cute messages as well on the window…would not ba a bad thing at all to find…smiles…it is hot here today…in the 70s crazy…i want the cold!!!

    December 3, 2012 at 19:41

  17. the last photo made me smile.:)

    December 3, 2012 at 19:45

  18. Ooooo, Lovely. The water heart❤

    I was hoping to see my beautiful Oscar in snow :)))) X Xxx

    December 3, 2012 at 20:25

  19. All white and furry.

    December 3, 2012 at 20:50

  20. oh fi how exquisite!!! we had our first snow fall two days ago, now it is warm again and it is all gone. I took some photos that will be posted tomorrow.

    December 3, 2012 at 20:57

  21. Your snowy world is very beautiful. We’re still waiting for our first snowfall.

    December 3, 2012 at 20:59

  22. onceupona

    I’ll take your word for it. The thing that saves me here in Denver is how many sunny days we get and with climate change (or chaos, depends on who you talk to), I’ve found our cold climate– well, not so cold. (Not that I am happy about the change in climate mind you!) Cheers! Danette

    December 3, 2012 at 21:02

  23. I love that last shot of Oscar!

    December 3, 2012 at 21:54

  24. WaOw !!! What a nice landscape ! And always with your dog, this is adorable:) GREAT PICTURES

    December 3, 2012 at 21:55

  25. And Oskar says the ball is not throwing itself…
    I love the writing on the cars!!

    December 3, 2012 at 21:57

  26. Lovely images, Fi. I especially like the big puddle and Oscar enjoying that “cold, white, fluffy stuff”! Thanks a million for sharing.

    December 3, 2012 at 22:36

  27. You know Oscar is my favourite subject (no matter how beautiful your other images…):-)

    December 3, 2012 at 23:01

  28. The hearts in the snow are so sweet. What a beautiful white blanket covering everything.

    December 3, 2012 at 23:25

  29. It’s both shiver-evoking and heart-warming at the same time.

    December 4, 2012 at 00:44

  30. Love the cute hearts! Looks like a winter wonderland! Love the photos, Lady Fi!

    December 4, 2012 at 01:00

  31. I do love the snow and always feel like a child when big flakes are falling. The only problem with those beautiful flakes is that they amount to feet upon feet of snow by the end of the winter season in New England. Your photo is just the right amount of snow on any given day as far as I’m concerned.

    December 4, 2012 at 01:12

  32. Seeing it through your eyes LadyFi makes Winter a fun and loved season. I am almost tempted to join your fun:-)

  33. Pat

    Beautiful snowy love! Oscar waits to play fetch.

    December 4, 2012 at 01:38

  34. Oscar is King of the Snow! Beautiful shots.

    December 4, 2012 at 03:06

  35. I love the starkness of these photos … and then lovely orange Oscar!

    December 4, 2012 at 03:17

  36. Wonderful winter shots and creativity in snow.

  42. Great set of winter scenes, your neighborhood looks a bit cold but splendid. Love the third image, is dreamlike!

    December 4, 2012 at 07:57

  43. Beautiful snow photos! Snow turns a dreary landscape into a fairyland. Yesterday we had our first bit of wet snow, which disappeared quickly. Thanks for your visit and comment. Have a nice day.

    December 4, 2012 at 08:18

  44. Delicious love messages in the snow, I like it.

    December 4, 2012 at 08:20

  62. How Gorgeous! and YES we need to embrace each day – no matter what the weather:)
    LOVE that heart puddle – and love the heart in the snow!
    Your images are always special:)

    December 4, 2012 at 15:05

  63. I’m jealous! Christmas without snow is just wrong and I am hoping we will have some this year. We keep getting an inch or so and then it gradually melts away on days we hit into the 30s and 40s. We’re back to no snow again. I’m hoping for a really good snowstorm before Christmas this year. 😉 It looks just beautiful to me and I love the messages in the fluffy snow!! :)

    December 4, 2012 at 15:12

  64. Exquisite photography ~ very elegant and fun too ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

    December 4, 2012 at 15:43

  73. “The key to enjoying a cold climate Is to embrace it.” I couldn’t agree more! It never snows in the Philippines but our weather’s colder this time of the year…
