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;

Redcottage.jpg

And happy blue skies

To go along with frosty nose and fingers.

Mist-ical scenes

Come down to the lake with me —

And enjoy the misty views.

Boat.jpg

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

Foggyview.jpg

As the sun tinges eternity

In colours of blue and lilac.

(Only posting once this week due to a high work load.)

Once in a blue moon

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.jpg

Rising like a balloon

And being released into the sky by the trees.

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! 😉

Floating in fog

One morning, I stepped out

Into a world of magical, freezing fog.

Beautifulfog.jpg

Standing on the top of a cliff,

It felt as if I were floating in a fairytale kingdom,

Dogs.jpg

Where the reflections of the clouds

Were mirrored on the fog.

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)!

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 ribbons

Before the leaves left the branches,

The sky put on a dramatic show

Dramainpink.jpg

Of pink ribbons

Tied up with lilac and gold.

(Only posting once this week – still very busy!)

Molten gold

One chilly morning, the fog lay like

A silken scarf across the cemetery.

Thefog.jpg

The church rose out of the golden mist

Like a ship riding on misty waves.

Church.jpg

A caretaker’s van looked

Picturesque against the burnished sky;

Fog.jpg

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 —

Lonetree.jpg

And its perfect reflection

Of upside down clouds.
