Still winter

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 —


Sometimes gradually,

And sometimes in a bright flash of pink.


Only posting once this week due to work.

For more feel-good moments, please visit: Our World and at the end of the week, Skywatch.

Dragon skies

A fiery dragon

Swept across the sky —

Leaving behind

A purple haze.

Winter postcards

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.

Magical freezing fog

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.

Ghost trees

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!

Light burst

On the way into the office;

A glorious burst of light illuminates the sky.

(Thank goodness for mobile phone cameras!

And apologies in advance if I don’t get round to visiting you – life is still very hectic.)

Pink frosting

So far winter has mainly been gray and mild,

So we have to make the most of those glorious

Pink frosted dawns with ice on the lake

And furry friends on the jetty.

Wishing you all the much love and joy in this festive season!

Molten gold

One chilly morning, the fog lay like

A silken scarf across the cemetery.


The church rose out of the golden mist

Like a ship riding on misty waves.


A caretaker’s van looked

Picturesque against the burnished sky;


And oh, the trees!

They floated in that sky of molten gold!


I’ll only be posting once this week as it gets crazy busy in the run-up to Christmas.

Upside down clouds

A lone tree

Guards the lake —


And its perfect reflection

Of upside down clouds.

Sun-kissed skies aren’t just about

Warm beaches and a hot blazing sun.


They are also about

The way the November sun paints

The tree tops with gold and pink.
