We’re having a lovely winter this spring,
But the dogs don’t mind.
With the return of the light,
The colour is coming back —
And sometimes in a bright flash of pink.
Only posting once this week due to work.
The snow hangs heavy on the trees.
But oh, that lovely March light
Bursts into song to let us know
That if we hang on just a little bit longer
Then spring will be here.

When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures
And lots of snow,
The best thing is to embrace it
And smile —
And meet it with wonder and joy.

It’s real winter at last!
The sun is so bright it hurts my eyes.
The plants and trees
Are covered in glittering ice crystals.
And it’s quite cold too —
So cold that even the icicles have icicles on them!
Ruby doesn’t mind the
Crystals on her face.
(Neither does Simmie but he’s too busy running around for me to snap a shot of him.)
Ruby waits patiently
For me to warm up my frozen fingers
Before we carry on with our beautiful walk.

In honour of the Chinese New Year – it’s Year of the Dog –
I’m featuring some of my favourite furry friends.
Those of you who have followed me for a while will recognize my very best fuzzy friend, Oscar.
When he died,
Two more furry friends, Ruby and Simmie, came into my life.
(It’s not often I get them both in the same picture.)
I love the way dogs embrace life –
And make the most of what they have:
Whether it’s a snowstorm
Or a large stick.
We can learn a lot from dogs.

Winter sent me some postcards:
A bridge nestled in cottonwool snow;
A golden tree line
Of sparkling trees;
A tiny, wooden, red cottage
Surrounded by iced delight;
And happy blue skies
To go along with frosty nose and fingers.

Come down to the lake with me —
And enjoy the misty views.
Let’s walk around the shore
And then explore the little sauna house on the ice.
Come rest a while,
And let’s enjoy
The cold and beautiful fog
As the sun tinges eternity
In colours of blue and lilac.
(Only posting once this week due to a high work load.)
Last weekend, we had some magical freezing fog.
The dogs were covered in hoar frost,
And the little sauna house
Nestled cozily on the icy lake.
Ruby posed in the mist —
She’ll do anything for a treat! 😉
All shots taken with frosted fingers and my mobile phone.
For more magical beauty, please go to: Our World.
Going down to the lake,
The trees rise up like ghosts.
It’s the hoar frost
That turns them into white beauties.
The little sauna house on the lake
Is snuggled in veils of white.
Ruby finds a boat
And balances on top (she’ll do anything for a treat)!
On the way home,
Ruby and Simmie provide pops of colour
Against the green and white trees.
When winter comes in all its beauty – you have to embrace it!
For more cool shots, please go to: Our World.
When you get up close,
Humble objects can transform.
Is it a sunflower perhaps with icy petals?
Or a frozen sun
Glowing next to the physical one?
Even when the object is itself —
A screw with ice crystals —
It still retains its humble beauty.
(I’ve still got some crazy deadlines to meet, so will only be posting once this week.)
