Postcards from February

The skies in February

Ranged from peaceful snowy scenes

Snowy scene

And my favourite kind of sparkle —

Hoar frost in the early setting sun

Hoar frost sky

To the jackpot of frosted branches

And gently falling snow.

Sunset branches

  1. Hi Fiona, Those pictures really could be postcards. SO gorgeous… Winter can be beautiful –UNTIL the Ice Storm destroys everything… Oh Well–life goes on. Now –it is Spring.
