Snow sprinkles

This is a winter’s tail

(Excuse the pun!) 

Winter's tail

A tale of how snow decorates

And transforms.


How the bare bones of winter

Have their own stark beauty.


The woods have a deep magic —

Although it helps to have a sweet Rottweiler puppy in the picture too!

Puppy in snow copy

And here, a lone wooden cottage

Seems to be bathing in snow kisses.

There’s more s-now business like snow business over at: Our World Tuesday.

  1. Great attention to de tail (pun very much intended):-)

    I love the Narnia-like winter landscape and mourn its absence this year. You’ve created poetry yet again with your photos.

    • I mourn the absence of snow too. Luckily, it snowed heavily a couple of times and I managed to get out with the cam.

  23. Dear LadyFi, for me, there are few things lovelier than the skeletons of trees holding up the weight of snow. Peace.

    February 24, 2014 at 19:28

  24. Lovely Pictures!
    We had +10 C today and at last sun……

    February 24, 2014 at 19:50

    February 24, 2014 at 19:58

  26. I do love the elegance of the bare bones of winter. Softened beautifully, magically with snow. Thank you.

    February 24, 2014 at 20:31

  27. Such photogenic dogs give us all paws for thought! (Pun very much intended!)

    February 24, 2014 at 20:41

  31. LOVE the image of the puppy against the red barn, playing in the snow

    February 24, 2014 at 21:41

  32. I don’t think you need to excuse the pun, a winter’s tale. Do embrace it; it’s wonderful.

    These photos are so beautiful, I can’t imagine what spring will bring.

    February 24, 2014 at 21:41

  33. A wonderful and beautiful scenery! But I have to admit … I´m looking forward to Spring!😉

    February 24, 2014 at 21:59

  34. Yes indeed – lovely snow! I like seeing those big flakes sifting downward.

    February 24, 2014 at 22:41

  35. Definitely evocative of magic. I’m sure I can see Merlin (bottom right of picture two):-)

    February 24, 2014 at 23:32

  36. I love the first shot with the red building and snow flurries. Very pretty. And the puppydogs are cute. Lovely captures. Have a happy week!

    February 24, 2014 at 23:39

    adoro il tuo cane, sempre protagonista delle tue splendide immagini
    notte felice lady
    Yes, there is always something magical in the snow …
    I love your dog, always protagonist of your beautiful images
    happy lady night

    Gorgeous! I love snow – walking in it, looking at it, the silence it brings. And looking at photos of it!

    February 25, 2014 at 01:50

  39. Winter glorification!! Lovely!!

    February 25, 2014 at 02:52

    The perspective distortion of the flakes against the red wall, now those are snow kisses. This morning while driving to work, there was snow squall. The flakes were the largest I have seen this winter.

    February 25, 2014 at 03:16

  41. Beautiful sights
    Thank you.:)

    February 25, 2014 at 03:52

  42. Gorgeous photos!

    February 25, 2014 at 05:22

  43. Rose L.

    You are young enough to still enjoy being out and experiencing the snow I am old and prefer to enjoy its beauty but not spend too much time in it. Brrrr! I did find that my camera kept fogging over when I was attempting to take photos!

    February 25, 2014 at 05:42

  44. Carole M.

    each photo is a delightful image in its own right

    February 25, 2014 at 06:08

  45. Do you think dogs prefer snow or the beach?

    February 25, 2014 at 07:55

  46. einfach schön
    und hier fliegen schon die Schmetterlinge
    LG vom katerchen

    February 25, 2014 at 08:30

  48. Yes, another wonderful series. Thanks for sharing and hosting.

    February 25, 2014 at 09:43

  49. What magic in poetry and pictures! I am madly in love with your world!

    February 25, 2014 at 10:15

  50. Lovely as ever. The snowflakes look so soft and fluffy, don’t they!

    February 25, 2014 at 11:17

  51. Fantastic photos! I haven’t managed to get any snow photos this year, despite all the storms we’ve had here.

    February 25, 2014 at 11:54

  52. I’m jealous, all I’ve had this winter is snow bullets, frozen slush and wind driven rain.

    Not as much fun as snow.


    February 25, 2014 at 12:16

  53. A story of beauty.

    February 25, 2014 at 12:24

    Beautiful winter scene♡♡♡  I loved the phrase ”Seems to be bathing in snow kisses.”♬♬♬
    Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  55. We had a nice 5 inches fall yesterday and it did transform our landscape. Lovely images Fiona. xo

    February 25, 2014 at 13:04

  56. Hi ladyfi, i smiled at the first comment, “great attention to de-tail, pun intended”, i will also follow the trend. Your de-tail-ing photo essay is so beautiful, much more to me who hasn’t experienced winter yet. It is is tail-or fit for me!

    February 25, 2014 at 13:07

  57. Very pretty!!

    February 25, 2014 at 14:25

    February 26, 2014 at 04:18

    February 26, 2014 at 07:15

    February 26, 2014 at 14:35

  74. The cottage looks so warm and inviting. I imagine sitting in there with a nice cup of hot chocolate or delicious coffee.

    February 26, 2014 at 14:40
