I have developed a great appreciation of snow recently. Living in SE Missouri for this month and next has put me smack in the middle of sleet, snow, and icicles. I am loving the beauty of this season, so unlike my winter in California. I've also come to understand that living in a cold winter requires attention to forecasts and forward planning. It is not so easy to go to the store when you run out of milk. Rain? No big deal. Snow and sleet. Not a good idea. But oh what beauty it brings.
The silence of winter is peaceful. Love these pictures.
That is serious snow! Lovely photos, Anna. Looks so pretty and peaceful. xx
Simply beautiful. You have a gift of reminding us of the beauty of relentless white stuff. Kudos for that!
Desolate, lonely, quiet. Beautiful photos! Nature is resting and waiting as we are. Enjoy.
So nice to see all your lovely photos again, Anna! I like the thought of the garden resting under the snow waiting for spring rejuvenation. It's certainly been a snowy winter here, too.I am so sorry for the loss of your friend; may you be comforted by loving memories of your friendship.
You make snow look beautiful!
The snow looks beautiful in your little corner, Anna! It's snowing heavily here today. What I like is the silence of snow. Everything is so hushed. What I don't like is driving in it! :)Stay warm and cosy! xoxo
Such silence that a winter brings with its many greys. I like the shot of your holly.I'm looking for Spring myself.
Oh yes - it indeed looks like winter weather over here! How can something so beautiful make us want to hurry spring along. LOL! Lovely! Keep warm my friend!xo Catherine
Beautiful photos! We're getting an unusual snow storm here in the Pacific Northwest and while it is lovely, it's too cold!
You certainly have captured the stillness of winter. I was particularly struck by the bench picture and canoe. The bench looks like an optical illusion. Was there two benches there? One of the benches has a ghostly appearance, like it is trying to be part of the earthly world or provide comfort or companionship to the other one. Very intriguing. Love the vivid red of the canoe against the steely grey and white of winter. Gives you the feeling that life just stopped and was hushed by the snow. Hugs, twt
stunning, especially as we only have RAIN and FLOODS here.. lovely to visit you again, Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx
Winter, at least a REAL winter, is a time for introspection and sorting out all those tucked away emotions in the corners of your darkest cupboards and sweeping most of them out to go into the wonder of spring with the glowing eyes of a child. Ejnoy the last of this quiet time before the dynamic spring arrives.
