The North Wind Blows…

The north wind doth blow,
And we shall have snow,
And what will the dormouse do then,
Poor thing?
Roll’d up like a ball,
In his nest snug and small,
He’ll sleep till warm weather comes in,
Poor thing.

Traditional ballad, The North Wind Doth Blow

  1. Beautiful images, if a little cold, Hanna. 🙂 🙂 In our version it’s Cock Robin but it comes to the same thing.

    • I love that kind of weather, Jo. A blue sky and drifting white clouds ❤ That's a perfect weather to go exploring 🙂 though I wouldn't mind the coast of Algarve either 🙂
      Speaking of Cock Robin Jo you should see this video from a fellow blogger Annica in Sweden
      Enjoy your walks!!!

    • That’s the best part of living in a northern country the changing seasons. So many colours to enjoy. Thanks a lot, Montucky!

    • David, I like your expression: Brings its own hazards 🙂 The wind here is also easterly. But the Northern Wind has a certain ring to it just as in the ballad. It’s usually very cold from those two directions 🙂 so I allowed myself a certain amount of artistic freedom 🙂

    • Thanks a lot for that, Alexander. I hope it’s the end of a very cold weather and not the start of an extremely icy spring. But only time will show 🙂
      It should be added that the relatively small snowfall, making the light and the walk very pleasant ❤
