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.

Come down to the lake with me —
And enjoy the misty views.
Let’s walk around the shore
And then explore the little sauna house on the ice.
Come rest a while,
And let’s enjoy
The cold and beautiful fog
As the sun tinges eternity
In colours of blue and lilac.
(Only posting once this week due to a high work load.)
I wasn’t expecting to see the blue moon
At about half-past three in the afternoon.
But there it was – gracing the winter sunset;
Rising like a balloon
And being released into the sky by the trees.

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.

One morning, I stepped out
Into a world of magical, freezing fog.
Standing on the top of a cliff,
It felt as if I were floating in a fairytale kingdom,
Where the reflections of the clouds
Were mirrored on the fog.
For more magic, please go to: Skywatch.
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!
For more cool shots, please go to: Our World.
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.)
For more light, please go to: Skywatch.
Before the leaves left the branches,
The sky put on a dramatic show
Of pink ribbons
Tied up with lilac and gold.
(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)
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.

And don’t forget Skywatch.
A lone tree
Guards the lake —
And its perfect reflection
Of upside down clouds.
