Snowy walk

A few weeks ago, the sun was shining

And the diamonds danced on the snow.

A perfect day for a walk with my furry buddy, Oscar.

Start the walk

This boat has been adrift

On the snowy landscape all winter.

Snow boat

Our neighbours placed their impressive gingerbread church

Outside for us – and the birds – to enjoy.

Gingerbread house

Walking down twisty lanes

I spied a vibrant splash of colour in someone’s garden:

An old red pump.

On the way home, we crossed the railway lines

In time to see the train disappearing

In a magical golden mist.

I felt as if I were living out a dream

In this enchanted winter wonderland.

    i don’t know how your pristine snow stay so .. here within a day it was disgusting … thankfully the rain today will wash a lot away

  9. I love that you see the beauty in every moment! Canada got dumped by a lot of snow and all people were doing was complaining about it! This was so much more enjoyable to see and read!:)

    What a lovely walk and I’m so glad you shared it with us (and your fuzzy buddy)!

    February 11, 2013 at 17:03

  13. Such a beautiful snowy walk! So crazy that the boat has been stuck there all winter. Guess that happens when it’s really cold and everything is frozen over!

    Magical moments! Your photos are great!

    love that they put the gingerbread house out in the snow for the birds.:)

    February 11, 2013 at 17:56

  16. Magestic! I am simply bowled over with how beautiful these photos are. Alex (my husband) looked across the room at the one with Oscar and said “Oh my God! That looks like Harry! We need to take him to the snow too!”. I agree, but the photos would never be in the same universe as yours!!!

    February 11, 2013 at 18:15

  17. I would love to walk with you and Oscar in that enchanted landscape, Fi. But, for now, your wonderful photos must be enough. Cold here in CO, too – but you have more snow.

    February 11, 2013 at 18:22

  18. OOO, what a beaufiful walk with your buddy, Oscar. Such grand things to see. I adore the birdhouse! …
    & that boat is waiting for a poem about it!

    Xx Kisssssss and Lick.

  19. Oh the vintage red gas pump…so yummy!!! Thanks for sharing all your white adventures with us.

    February 11, 2013 at 19:16

  20. I love following your footsteps via your beautiful pictures:-)

    February 11, 2013 at 19:21

  21. oo that last one is really cool…the light in it…but i love the boat…ha…very beautiful

    February 11, 2013 at 19:33

  22. Honestly, anyone who thinks that winter scenery is dead, boring, and/or monochromatic need only visit your blog’s winter photos. You truly do live in a magical landscape, but it’s your ability to see the magic and capture it in your beautiful photos that makes it so obvious. I love the golden light in the photo of Oscar and those snowy tree branches, and the fact your neighbors are sharing their sweet gingerbread church with the critters. Is that a Harley Davidson sign I spy behind the dazzling red pump?:-) The train photo is surreally beautiful! What a lovely winter sojourn I just enjoyed thanks to you. As always.:-)

  23. Brilliant idea to put the gingerbread out for the birds! I wish we would get a bit of the white stuff around here! Tired of the cold rain and mud. Beautiful landscape covered in white. Thanks for sharing.

    February 11, 2013 at 22:18

  57. Beautiful winter walk. The gingerbread Church is fantastic.

    February 12, 2013 at 17:53

  58. Magical indeed! I wonder if the birds ate that lovely Gingerbread House or used it for shelter:)

    February 12, 2013 at 17:55

  59. Wowie! Beautiful winter wonderland pics! The frozen ice on the ginger bread house looks tastefully like icing!

    February 12, 2013 at 18:02

  60. Your pictures are really beautiful ! It’s only that I am so fed up with winter and snow ! I want to see green !!!

    February 12, 2013 at 18:34

  61. Lovely pics…the first one with Oscar…gillar jag

    February 12, 2013 at 22:03

  62. I get cold just looking at your beautiful snow! It’s so pristine and white – love it.

    February 12, 2013 at 23:11

  63. How lovely! and how lucky you are !!

    February 13, 2013 at 01:38

  64. You make winter magical though your beautiful words and pictures.

    February 13, 2013 at 02:03

  65. You and your furry buddy caught some beautiful sights. These are amazing. Your neighbor’s gingerbread is beautifully done.

    February 13, 2013 at 02:46

  66. I love that gingerbread house!

    Taking my laptop to art class Thursday to show the luddites your website.:)

    February 13, 2013 at 03:27

  67. Enchanting it is! I think it’s your magic that brings out the beauty. Neat of your neighbors to “donate the gb house to the birds when they’re thru with it.

    February 13, 2013 at 04:42

  68. Beautiful walk, you have such an eye. I love the idea of putting the gingerbread house out. Better than throwing it in the trash.

    February 13, 2013 at 04:55

  69. So beautiful! Ican only see such sights in pictures!

    February 13, 2013 at 08:48

  84. Dear Ladifi,
    I like your snowy snowy pictures very much. I figured this out. You are calling the beautiful snow as diamonds. And the furry buddy is your dog, Oscar.😀
