Winter haitus

 

One day, it’s glorious autumn

And bursts of colour,

Endofautumn.jpg

The next, it’s heavy snowfall

And the magic of winter —

With autumn leaves still hanging on.

Although all this snow has now melted,

(Yes, all melted away!)

We had one wonderful week

Full of the magic of snow.

(I’m hoping it will come back before Christmas.)

  3. You captured the interface between autumn and winter perfectly here, Fiona.

    We never have snow in Florida. Only when I visit Pennsylvania, my birthplace can I experience the magic of snow.

  7. Beautiful images, Fi!
    We had 70-degree temps here in NY on Saturday, and now we are blanketed under just about 18 inches of snow.
    A bit of an inconvenience this week, but it really is so pretty out there.
