After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun
To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture
The snow-laden clouds.
The snow was up to my thighs.
My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.
The bench seemed a good place to
Contemplate the horizon
And enjoy the view.

And tinges everything pink:
As the sun rises
We enjoy a moment of rose-tinted serenity.
The view from my new part of the lake
Is simply stunning on an early morning, don’t you think?

Somewhere in the woods, next to the lake,
There is a small strip of beach
Called The People’s Park.
There is a dance floor under a round roof
And a dilapidated, little hut.
Still, the location is good:
It’s right next to the water
And has its own jetty
With a charming orange boat
Sprinkled with sugary snow —
Just waiting for the summer.

I’m off to England to visit the family this weekend.
So, I leave you with two of my favourite shots:
A sky full of rainbow clouds
And a golden wonder —
My daughter and her best buddy, Oscar (now deceased).
Back next week!

Before summer got into full swing over here,
Simson and I went out one early, dewy morning
To enjoy the happy suns of daffodils;
On purple baubles
And the vibrant splash
Of sunny silken petal.
It was hard work for Simson to lie still
And watch me —
Just look at the concentration on his face!
For more happy baubles, please visit: Our World.
What is it that approaches
From stage left?
Can it be those heavy brocades
Weaved from storm clouds?
Or the rain coming down
In bars of coloured clouds?
Simson did his best to pose in the storm —
But I think he was secretly relieved when I took him and my camera home.

Chili peppers are measured in Scoville units,
With the spiciest pepper in the world scoring over two million Scovilles.
I think these red hot clouds would also score highly, don’t you?
And what better way to enjoy a vibrant sunset
Than with a good furry friend!

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.
For more frosted views, please visit: Our World.
When the broken yolk of the sun
Splashed over the ice,
I knew a wonderful sky was coming.
(I snapped Ruby with my mobile phone.)
I rushed home to get my ‘big’ camera
And was just in time
To see the sky
Romancing the snow.

The blushing apricot tones
Of dawn light up the sky,
And bring a sparkle
To the trees wearing
Their winter dress of hoar frost.
Then the dawn mellows
Into a melody of lilac and pink
Over the old church across the frozen lake.
Who says cold isn’t beautiful?
