Winter seems to be waning —
I say ‘seems’ as this is Sweden and it can snow even in June!
But I don’t think we will see scenes like this one again this winter:
With thick snow on the iced over lake.
It’s cold in the mornings,
So, if we are lucky,
We can still enjoy rim-frosted green lanterns

It’s still very cold in the mornings and evenings (below zero) —
But oh, what a joy it is
To see the light returning in shades of orange
For more delightful scenes, please visit: Skywatch.
The snow is melting and the light is changing —
But who says that winter is without its own bright light?
When it is cold with hoar frost
Lying thick on the branches
And, with the sun shining,
The cold can be just as dazzling.

Ruby loves to play hide-and-seek
Among the trees –
While Simmie says
Peekaboo with snow.
What about this photo –
Can you spot the dog?
What about now? Only teasing –
I think this is a fox we spotted in the field.
It was lying down in the snow and got up with difficulty.
It was much bigger than Simmie so, at first, I thought it was a wolf.
We looked at each other for a long time – each of us not so different from the other.
Then we went our separate ways.

The snow hangs heavy on the trees.
But oh, that lovely March light
Bursts into song to let us know
That if we hang on just a little bit longer
Then spring will be here.
For more foggy light, please go to: Our World.
Fog – a majestic backdrop
For a red dog (or two);
Fog – veiling landscape
Fog – settling on the ground
Like a silken scarf.

When winter gives you freezing cold temperatures
And lots of snow,
The best thing is to embrace it
And smile —
And meet it with wonder and joy.
For more smiles, please go to: Our World.
The path leads through
Snowy beauty —
All the way
To pink popcorn cloud skies.

It’s real winter at last!
The sun is so bright it hurts my eyes.
The plants and trees
Are covered in glittering ice crystals.
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 waits patiently
For me to warm up my frozen fingers
Before we carry on with our beautiful walk.

In between the snowfalls,
A hiatus of freezing fog:
Golden veils fall over the landscape —
Bringing peace, silence and beauty.
