Winter came down to our home one night
Quietly pirouetting in on silvery-toed slippers of snow,
And we, we were children once again.
Bill Morgan, Jr.
The cold was our pride, the snow was our beauty. It fell and fell, lacing day and night together in a milky haze, making everything quieter as it fell, so that winter seemed to partake of religion in a way no other season did, hushed, solemn.
Go to the winter woods: listen there, look, watch, and “the dead months” will give you a subtler secret than any you have yet found in the forest.

Beautiful pictures. I like looking at snow but not so keen having to battle to work in it!
If it’s a big daily challenge I agree. But occasionally having the great pleasure of being a child again – I like that 🛷⛷⛄😊
Thanks a lot!!!
Beautiful – we had real beautiful weather two days – and today it is raining away again…
Thank you, Leya. You have to be there when it happen 😉 Lots and lots of rain at my place too.
Lovely photos and poems, Hanna. The beauty of winter has inspired many a writer.
Thanks a lot, Tanja! Nature inspires us all. It is quite interesting when you measure the effect nature has on the human brain. Fortunately, scientists have become wiser at that point for the benefit of nature and people 🤞
Increasing awareness is a good thing, but I do not need a scientist to tell me that nature is good for me. I am sure you feel the same way.
Absolutely stunning shot of the “winter woods”…
Isabel, it was a wonderful walk in the winter wood.
Our winter snow as short lived….all gone and at the moment only mixed wet, windy weather in the forward forecast. On the positive side I guess we can soon see lots of signs of Spring 🙂
Hi David. I can agree with you. Spring is right around the corner and if it’s a repetition of last year we can go to the beach in about two month from now though you might be slightly ahead of me 😊
Love to go on a beach walk today…..just a little too far to travel in these short days….but one can dream 🙂
Cold and beautiful! Looks like a winter wonderland.
Thanks Janaline. When the landscape is covered by new powder snow, it’s like stepping into a fairy tale 😊
Lovely photos. Looks so cold.
Thanks a lot for that!! It was cold but very beautiful 💖
These are lovely pictures, and wonderful quotations – all three of them are new to me, and I like them very much. I like the first show in particular, with the walk between the hedges to the doorway.
I spent a little time getting the front door located right in the middle, and enjoyed searching for poetry to my pictures. Lovely job 😊
Thanks a lot for your nice compliment, Robert!!!
Smuk ❤ I miss the snow…
Good to hear from you!! I’m sure/I know you will catch up in no time ⛷⛄🛷😎
