winter

The cold of yesterday turned the world white during the night.  I peeped outside early before it was light and saw the magic beginning, huge flakes were silently drifting down.  There was enough snow in the end for it to be a ‘snow day’, big treat!  Ironically, the local children could get to school but the teachers couldn’t drive in as the roads were so bad.  My son was already on his way when I got a text message saying the school was shut.  Needless to say they were able to amuse themselves one way and another.

Before long, a new had neighbour appeared.

Later, warmed by the fire that is thankfully working today, I played with my little birds taking new portraits of them, There are more of these in the pipeline, they are such fun to make.

  1. Hi Joy,

    I love your photographs ~ particularly the last one with the snow covered hill in the background. How I miss Yorkshire!

    Thanks for dropping by to say hello ~ I wondered what had become of you…
