First Snow of the Season

  1. I love snow! I wish it snowed where I live, but it never does! The only time it did was for one day back in 2011, but that was a freak one that will apparently not happen again for 50 years 😦

    1. Isn’t it? I am thrilled to bits 🙂 Let’s raise our hot cocoa to white Christmas days, Anni. I will be in Italy soon and then India, so I doubt I shall get any snow soon, so might as savour whatever I get before we travel. xx

  2. Oooh, I felt chilly looking at your lovely photos. We so rarely get snow on the coast and, if we do, it melts in a day. However the Nicois hinterland and the southern Alps have plenty of snow, as has where we’re spending Xmas and New Year. Can’t wait!

  3. A lovely winter wonderland! Really beautiful shots of the trees and the chubby squirrels! Too bad you didn’t see Alex there, he might have liked the squirrels 🙂 Love the mysterious footsteps of the one legged man and the scurrying little prints surrounding it 😉 -Neek

    1. Thank you Neek. Right? Next time I am going to get Alex on my camera and stalk him. His old master might feel suitably alarmed. I think that chubby squirrel up on the tree and Alex have best-friend possibilities written all over their faces. You noticed the little prints! And as for the one-legged man, let your inner Sherlock reign 😉 xx

  4. AAAHH…this answered my question on my blog post…SO MUCH SNOW!! What fun!!!!!!!! I have only encountered this amount of snow on our visit to Switzerland a couple of years ago and I didn’t get to play in it because we (read: Hubby) were being all proper and touristy, clicking polite pictures standing by the road-side, with a little smile plastered on our faces…hmph!! I am sure you had a ball in all this snow and that too right around Christmas!! Alex sounds adorable..I had a golden retriever named ‘Shine’ before we left India. We had to give him away to our relatives (so thank god we still get to meet him when we visit)…but leaving him was the most heart-breaking thing that I have ever done in my life! 😦 Anyway. Enjoy girl, and make a snow-man and name him after me haha!! xx

    P.S- Falling snow flakes on your blog are soo pretty!

    1. I think it is all wp, Mallika, viz. the snowflakes on my blog. Aww I can imagine your husband taking photos and being all correct. You should have attacked him from behind 😉 That would have given him a lesson or two in politeness.
      I am sorry you had to leave Shine behind during your move. It must have broken your heart. It did mine to leave ours, Tuktuk, behind. I always wondered what he thought about us suddenly disappearing. But then he was with my in-laws and he was okay. Yet I know he must have missed us incredibly. It is such a pity that they cannot speak which makes it even more saddening because they keep the sadness within. Anyway, next time there is snow we will probably be travelling, so the snow might hafta wait till January when I get back home :0) Have a lovely week you! xx

  5. I love your enthusiasm for the snow. Great photos. I’ve lived in Canada all my life and you’d think I’d be immune to the charms of the white stuff. Most people here curse it, but I love it (except when I have to drive).

    1. Yeah the practicality of it after a few days must be terrible. But there is something about it. It makes the world look wonderful all at once. Plus there is the fact that I saw snow for the first time in my life five years ago. The charm has not worn off 🙂 xx

      1. Ah, the first cold of the season as well. That’s too bad, but Zicam has worked wonders for me in the past if you want to give that a try! I am not familiar with Mills & Boon! Will have to check it out.

      2. Well since autumn, this would be my third. A big thing for someone who used to feel inordinately proud about her immunity to colds. Mills & Boon, ah I used to think I could read them till I turn 80 but alas the pleasure has diminished though I might pick up one randomly.

  6. Snow transforms everything. Oh! that photo off toward the sea looks timeless. Not too long ago, a couple of weeks, we were in Central Oregon where it was 16 degrees (F) when we got up in the morning, eventually rising to 28 degrees by mid-afternoon. In that weather the bare tree branches sported a thin coat of white frost, making them look very special when the light hit them. 🙂 Very magical.

      1. Ah, good point! (about the change of seasons) We’re getting gray skies today but they promise a bit of clearing and sun tomorrow. In Seattle, that’s big, and I imagine it’s like that back in England where you were for so many years!
