The skies in February
Ranged from peaceful snowy scenes
And my favourite kind of sparkle —
Hoar frost in the early setting sun
To the jackpot of frosted branches
And gently falling snow.

Ruby’s previous owner trained her to jump up
On very tall rocks for treats. She seems to enjoy it.
Last week, the mornings were cold (minus temperatures)
But Ruby decided to break through the ice for a swim anyway.
She then scaled a tall rock
And decided to share a spring shower with me.
Once out of the water,
She started to steam in the cold air.
No matter how hard he tried,
Simson just wasn’t agile enough to jump onto the top of that tall tall rock!
In the meantime, Ruby remained at the top,
Enjoying the sunshine in majestic solitude.

Back in February, we took a trip to visit a new friend
Living on the shore of a large inland lake.
Some boats were marooned in the harbour
And people strolled out onto the frozen lake
To enjoy the view.
I felt all buoyed up
By the dazzling snow and sunlight.
Just as we were leaving,
The sun made a glorious spectacle of itself
Casting a golden glow over this winter’s tale.

Indulge me as I revel in the joy of dogs.
(This is our dear Oscar – gone but not forgotten.)
They know how to live life
So fully and happily and goofily
(Life is better with a bit of silliness in it and Simson is our little goofball.)
They know how to greet friends
With open paws and make them feel appreciated
(This is Alba, a friend’s dog.)
And they know that a smile and some snow
Is the best cosmetic in the world,
(Just like our Ruby).

A couple of weeks ago, we had a lovely snowfall
And I got to enjoy berries wearing a Santa hat.
The dried seed pods
Glowed like lace in the sunlight
And delicate diamonds
Glittered on slender stems.
Even the snowballs on the frozen lake
Looked like pearls.
But my favourite sight – as always –
Are snowflakes of joy.

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
And a little brown cabin
Enjoying the view of the frozen lake.
This magnificent tree
Looked lovely in its winter dress of hoar frost —
As did Ruby!
But my favourite sight has to be
This hidden red cottage
Nestled in a bed of frosted branches.
