A Snow Day

Gently and softly it came. The rooms became brighter inside, and the distant hum of traffic stopped. Quietly cocooned, the garden was wrapped up in white. Snow had fallen.
It was that perfect kind. The type that makes the best snow balls and sled runs. I wondered which of the 'fifty words' I would use to best describe it.
'Picturesque through the wardrobe kind' where a white witch's wand could be imagined, left carelessly  upon a sleigh behind the frozen crab apple? 
Or the soft steps of Satyrs or Fauns awakening frozen fairy bells, as their hooves crackle, compressing a thousand snowflakes into the shape of a footprint. 
From the branches, Aslan's little helpers watched on.
Extra hungry on days such as these, so seconds and thirds were provided. 
Quite a covering for this old westerly part of the world.
And although the primroses are beginning to bloom. I have to admit that I would welcome another day of this winter world before the Spring arrives.

You can join me on a walk during my snow day, shared in the video below  :) 


  1. That was wonderful! Loved the video :)
    We had such a threadbare covering here that went within a few hours, that it's lovely to share how beautiful it was in your part of the world. Thanks, Karen :)

  2. Oh beautiful! Love sharing the walk - how I would love to visit England again. It's been too many years and I was too young (!) to appreciate it. It was a brief trip,and limited to London. That photo of the blackbird! Magical.

  3. Thanks for taking us with you. Here is spring around the corner. Have a great day..


Thanks so much you for leaving me a comment.
It's great to hear from you! :-)
