No matter how you look at it —
Or without a dog:
Winter is beautiful.

It suddenly got cold – very cold.
This is what minus 20 C looks like in the front garden.
I love the way the pine trees glisten in the sun.
Later, when it had warmed up a few degrees,
I went for a walk in the nearby woods.
The setting sun turned this bush
Into a golden glass sculpture,
And the pastel sky
Was a pretty backdrop for a world
Turned beautiful by snow.
Still drowning in boxes – and a full week of work lies ahead too!

Just popping in to say hello and to share this glorious view
Of frozen birch trees in a glowing winter sunset.
(It was about minus 16 C.)
Life is still very busy with house unpacking stuff so I apologize in advance for not getting round to your blogs.

Winter’s freezing dawn
Creates an abstract work of art;
Trees rise ghostly
In deliciously cold lilac dresses;
And the ancient church
Floats in clouds of pink.
Cold and startling and beautiful —
Another gift from nature.

Yesterday the temperature dropped down to minus 25 C
In the frosted early morning.
I went out on the ice – but stayed out way too long –
One and a half hours… With no breakfast.
Came back with a frost damaged face
And spent the rest of the day in bed sick.
Just goes to show that you shouldn’t
Be bound by your limits —
But you should know what your limits are!
Thank you in advance for your kind comments – I won’t be replying to them today
As I need to recover.

The sun – just like life –
Burns us not with its heat,
But with its passion,
And its golden glow.
(And yes, it was a very cold sunset!)

I wake to a world of plummeting temperatures and snow.
Minus 25 C. It’s cold. Very cold.
My glasses are white with a thick layer of ice.
Not a bus or train in sight. Freezing.
I’m on the verge of giving up the wait.
Then, suddenly, a sound…
Beating out a message on the frozen bark of a tree.
It’s a drum roll that speaks of determination,
Of patience and hope.
Of the promise of better things to come.

Imagine if you will …
Cold winter sunshine,
An iced over lake swarming with dog walkers and ice skaters,
Temperatures well below freezing.
Suddenly, on the way home, we arrive at the little bridge over the cold stream feeding into that frozen, frozen lake.
It’s the only open water for miles around and the meeting place for shivering ducks.
And yet – it is tempting, so tempting.
“Will I? Won’t I?”
It’s refreshing, very refreshing!
After taking the plunge, Oscar shakes diamonds into the air and trots home, satisfied with his long winter walk.
Life is so much better when you carry sunny weather in your heart…

– 25 C out. Swaddled like a penguin, I march out with the dog in defiance of the cold.
Glowing cheeks, icicles in nose, frosty eyelashes.
Mountains of snow to thrill and chill.
Feeling frozen. Living in this Viking freezer.
Suddenly, a warming sight greets me.
A golden sun painting the scene with warm yellow tones.
Beauty that takes my breath away and leaves me
Anticipating the next cold walk at sunset.

I’m British, so of course, I like to talk about the weather! After all, what can be more fickle (apart from politicians)?
Since I moved to Sweden 13 years ago, I’ve had to get used to sights like this one…
Are you sure you can bear it? Oh – the snow, the ice, the bone-chilling cold…
However, if you can dance on the ice, then you can triumph over the cold!
And then, in really chilly weather, you might come across this…
If you’re squeamish, please close your eyes now!
…. Are your eyes averted?
That’s right – frosted hair! (My neighbour usually has lovely brown hair.)
Why is she smiling?
Well, it might just have something to do with views like this!
I’m not sure I can bear anymore though…
So much cold beauty to enjoy!
