Frosted delight

Come and let’s take a walk through my enchanted world.

In the early morning, the freezing temperatures

Create art out of silver beeches


And the hoar-frosted trees frame

The pyramid of the swings at the end of our street.

Hoar frost swings

Once out on the lake, I walk past

An enchanted red boat house

Hiding among frosted branches.

Hoar frost - red house copy

Zooming out with my lens, I see the boat house

Belongs to this summer cottage

Patiently waiting for warmer days.

As for me, I’m enjoying the last cold days

Of magical hoar frost and ice.

  9. Who live there? Beautiful photos.

    March 4, 2013 at 17:47

  10. I just love the little “wilderness” of your back yard.:-) That first photo is especially beguiling – the trees seem to be enticing us to walk down that natural lane between us to see what treasures lay beyond.

    Love the little splash of dignified red on that charming wee cottage.

    March 4, 2013 at 17:54

  11. lol – natural lane between THEM, not between us. (Where’s an editing feature when you need one?):-)

    March 4, 2013 at 22:38

  26. Your photographs are always splendid, no matter which season, but aren’t you just a little bit tired of winter?
    I can’t wait to shed a clout or two.

  39. I just love these photos, it makes me feel so close to my true heritage that I will never see, only in your blog will I ever see where my family is and came from. Your blog is so important to me. I see the summer of my ancestors and you show me the winter of my ancestors and family in the beautiful way your eyes see it all. thank you for sharing this to me as that is what it is you do.

    March 5, 2013 at 06:30
