Wonderland

It’s been a fairly mild winter again.

But back in December, we enjoyed a week or so of wonderland!

I found some lamps ready to light the way

Lamps

And a little brown cabin

Enjoying the view of the frozen lake.

Little boat house

This magnificent tree

Looked lovely in its winter dress of hoar frost —

Tree

As did Ruby!

Ruby in frost copy

But my favourite sight has to be

This hidden red cottage

Nestled in a bed of frosted branches.

    Beautiful photos! I admit, winter has its own, unique beauty. However, living in one of the coldest capital cities in the world (Ottawa, Canada) where winter lingers on just a little bit too long, we sometimes lose sight of this beauty. This is the case this February, where we have been experiencing the coldest consecutive deep freeze in recorded history. So, I’m very much looking forward to spring! I still find the photos awesome though!
