Snowfall

A little someone woke early yesterday morning and wanted to go out into the garden..


It was bitterly cold and we had a light dusting of snow that had fallen overnight which made me happy,i love snow and have watched friends from all over the world posting their snowy pictures while we woke up to sunny and rainy days but today it was out turn for snowfall...


I filled the hot water bottles and we climbed back into bed waking a few hours later to more snow,there where big flakes floating past the kitchen window and everything was blanketed in white..


I turned on the kitchen light and peered out into a Winter wonderland...


Everything looked so lovely as the wind blew and fluffy flakes swirled by....


I dashed into the garden room with Beatrix quickly tip toeing behind to look out of the French doors and this was our view....

Back down the hallway and into the room, with Beatrix in my arms i opened the window and looked outside into the garden....


It was so lovely and oh so quite just the sound of the wind...


Looking out of the glass window on the kitchen door we watched...


As the snowflakes blew around covering the hedges and seed heads on last Summer's flowers....


The hydrangea looked particularly beautiful and somewhere underneath there was our greenhouse that our neighbour kindly gave us last Summer...

As the snow came down heavier the winds blew it sideways and everything looked like it had been sprayed with bath foam...

I love how everything changes shape and takes on a round softness...


Beatrix had a peek outside...one leg in and one leg out...


Then all the way out as she looked for the steps...


Leaving tiny little paw prints in fresh snow....


I cleaned the bird table and piled lots of fresh seed on for our feathered friends and there were many visiting through the day...


I played snowballs with Beatrix until my fingers were icy cold but before we went back inside I walked to the picket gate to take a picture of our pink cottage covered in snow and there I could see little Beatrix on the door step looking up at the falling snow,can you see her on the left? awww,,,


It was then time to curl up in front of the roaring fire as all the excitement had worn Beatrix out..


I hope you are enjoying your weekend and maybe you have snow too? enjoy yourselves whatever you may be up to...

Will you join me next time for more tales and goings on from Shingle Cottage?

  4. Lovely Photos! Don't you love the soft muffled sounds when it Snows? We have a view of Mt. Baker from our area and sometimes Mt. Rainer, both considered active but dormant, if that makes sense. Baker at the skiing area has over 160 inches of snow. You can Google them, really beautiful! Miss B.doesn't look to sure of the Snow! Your hydrangeas look like powder puffs!xxxx

  5. I really enjoyed this post. The pictures are lovely and I like the white-blue light that snow casts on everything. Even Beatrix is the colour of snow. We very rarely have snow in Brittany, so I enjoy it on blogs ;)
