Day 9 - Winter's Beauty

Today it's bitterly cold, with an icy wind, so I'm only brave enough to venture into the garden, moving gingerly to avoid slipping...

But a sprinkling of overnight frost does make everything beautiful!

Any adult in the UK will say winters were always colder and longer in their childhood days. My favourite memory is sliding/skidding home from school in the gathering dark (there were no street-lights in our little villages in the 70s), stopping to have snowball fights along the way. And when it was a Full Moon, the snow and ice glistened and shone making it feel even more magical and otherwordly.

The Beauty of Winter, indeed!

    Claire, beautiful pictures and lovely story. Thanks for sharing both.

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment, Diane! I always so appreciate it when folk take time to comment - it means a lot :) x

  2. When you are kids everything has more impact, the days and nights are longer, the weather colder or hotter. Now that we are adults, so busy, everything goes by faster.


Your comments mean a lot. They show I'm not alone. Thank you!
