Light burst

It’s cold.

The snow hangs heavy on the trees.

But oh, that lovely March light

Light

Bursts into song to let us know

That if we hang on just a little bit longer

Then spring will be here.

Winter joy

When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures

And lots of snow,

Run.jpg

The best thing is to embrace it

And smile —

And meet it with wonder and joy.

Cold crystals

It’s real winter at last!

The sun is so bright it hurts my eyes.

Dogs.jpg

The plants and trees

Are covered in glittering ice crystals.

Crystals.jpg

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.jpg

Ruby waits patiently

For me to warm up my frozen fingers

Before we carry on with our beautiful walk.

Winter postcards

Winter sent me some postcards:

A bridge nestled in cottonwool snow;

Snowybridge.jpg

A golden tree line

Of sparkling trees;

Goldentreeline.jpg

A tiny, wooden, red cottage

Surrounded by iced delight;

And happy blue skies

To go along with frosty nose and fingers.

Ghost trees

Going down to the lake,

The trees rise up like ghosts.

Ghosts.jpg

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)!

Ruby.jpg

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!

A Viking spring

Spring in Sweden is often a time

Of surprise snow, minus temperatures and hard frosts.

It might not be the kind of spring we want —

But it is beautiful anyway.

Spring salsa

Here in Sweden, we have a fifth season that I like to call Springter.

It’s that mixture of spring and winter —

Eyelashes on crocus.jpg

With spring promising warmth one day,

Only to go back two steps to winter;

Ruby.jpg

Then forward a step to spring.

You could say it’s spring and winter

Performing a salsa!

Tiny worlds of crystal

Sometimes, on a rare day of winter perfection,

Ice crystals coat the world —

Icecrystals.jpg

Turning reeds and wire fences

Into small works of abstract art.

Circle.jpg

In fact, you can hardly tell the difference

Between nature’s beauty

And the artifice of a wire fence.

Both glitter with possibility.

Snowy serenity

I love the way snow

Softens the contours of nature:

Trees.jpg

Making cottages

Into works of art

Redcottage.jpg

And turning leaves

Into elegant pictures.

The green lanterns

There is something very appealing

About splashes of colour in the snow:

Lanterns.jpg

Green lanterns with the added dash of golden fur

Make the scene even more attractive.

Lanternswithdogs.jpg

As I continued on my snowy walk,

I turned back to see a lone lantern

Saying farewell in solitary beauty.
