The abstract of snow

Snow is so beautiful —

It really brings out the colour of patient dogs.

Simmie.jpg

 

It falls in swirls

Of fairy lights,

Snowygarden.jpg

Turning the woods

Into a mysterious place.

Mystery.jpg

Suddenly, tall, snow-topped trees

Make us realize how small we are in the universe,

Trees.jpg

And humble wood

Is turned into abstract art.

  35. Shhhhnow! Or Snowy Butterflies as I like to call them. Your snowy pictures are feast as well as festive. As much I like to watch snow fall, as it always takes me back to my childhood, I eaqually like to take a walk in the woods at night during a snow storm. At night it is not so much the visual but rather the audio. The sound of snow falling in the woods at night is a whispered symphony as they kiss the surface of twigs, even themselves.

    Also, I agree with you that the “tall, snow-topped trees
    Make us realize how small we are in the universe, And humble wood
    Is turned into abstract art.”

  58. I just realized I hadn’t commented on this wonderful post yet, Fiona.
    Your dogs are beautiful, and so young and healthy. Just today my husband was very worried about Lindy, because she slept until noon. We’ve had her since autumn of 2009. The rescue society, where we adopted her, had estimated her age at 4, but, not long afterward, her vet said she was probably 5. Well, it’s still a long while since ’09, and she’s entitled to a lie-in from time to time.
    I enjoy your photos of your dogs ever so much, and have unrealistic notions of getting a Golden puppy. I’m 70, and Dick is 72, so I don’t really think we should get a pup because we might not be around in 9 or 10 years. On the other hand, we just might!!
    Hug a dog for me, and hug your wonderful children (growing up so fast) also.

    • So, Lindy is getting on in age then. We got Oscar and Ruby when they were 4.5 years old, and Simmie when he was 17 months (which is far too young). So you could always adopt an older dog again… 😉

But you know that I’m always gushing with praise here in my comments, so I thought I’d let you know that this post, while the photography is excellent, does not fill my heart with joy. (Being honest, just so you know that I am really sincere when I comment on nearly every one of your other posts by telling you that my heart is happy. I love the wonderful light, your beautiful lavender skies, your gorgeous water, your happy children, your joyful dogs … oh wait, there is a dog in this post too ,,, a very happy and patient one. So I will admit that this post makes me moderately happy in spite of the cold ;>)))
