Wintry















I overheard a conversation between an older lady (by accident - the older generation do like to talk that little bit louder...don't you think) and a cashier in the bank this morning that really made me chuckle.  

The older lady was saying how nice and beautiful the snow was, but how lovely it disappeared so quickly.  If that was a guarantee then let it snow several times a week!

Yep - The snow is gone.  

All washed away by the onslaught of yet more rain late yesterday afternoon. Why not more snow Mr Weather person - it was cold enough!?.

All that freshness just melted away in almost a blink of an eye.  

It settled here so thickly yet a few miles out - not a thing - not even a flake...the mister told me so who travelled that way very early in morning.

The only thing left standing is the snowman (melting slowly) sat alone in the back garden...as so many others are in neighbouring gardens I pass.

The sun is out today, the rain has also fled - not for long though I'm sure - and it is bitterly cold.  

If you follow me on Twitter (the button is over there on the top'ish' right of the page marked with a little bird) you will see the absolutely freezing pictures I took this morning down on the seafront - I was sooooo cold.

Have a beautiful day.

  1. Gorgeous shots, thanks Nina. Love the beachy ones too - you must have been frozen!

    Bright but still cold here so we have frozen mushy snow now if that makes sense? Just issued a cold weather alert at work though for the rest of the week (our staff look after lots of older and vulnerbale people) and apparently its the wind that's going to make us freeze later in the week. Brrrrrrrrrrrr!

    Stay cosy.

  6. I really don't like snow ... I know I'm in the minority ... I love to look at it for a while, then like the old lady in the bank, am glad when it goes! Otherwise it turns to slush and ice, and really isn't pretty at all ... Must have had a bad experience as a child!

    Love Claire xxx

  8. Lovely views you had while it lasted. Our snow is mostly melted but the weather man mentioned some more. My fingers are crossed! I hope I am not talking loud yet :)

  9. Wow, you had quite a bit of snow!! We had maybe a couple of inched yesterday morning but it's been sunny so a lot of it has gone. But the combination of snow and sun was lovely while it lasted - so much light.

  11. Hi Nina,
    I'm so glad the snow stayed around long enough for your to photograph it. It looks so beautiful your photo by the sea was equally stunning.

  12. I loved the snow when I lived in the UK - although it did not snow enough where we lived (London) - it was even better when we did'nt have to goto work, but that did not happen very often. x

  13. You had more snow than we did and I am grateful that it has mostly gone away now.

    I am trying to catch up on my blog-reading which is why I haven't commented recently.

  19. Love the photos, it seems like snow makes everything beautiful, but woke in a rather silly mood so the rose hip photo reminded me of a little dried octopus, cute! Stay warm and we are still waiting for a least a little dusting of the white stuff!

  20. I did so enjoy the tiny bit of snow we had here in East Sussex, Kent was more generously blessed with snow from the looks of your photos, really beautifully captured Nina. I was rather pleased to see a sunrise and some lovely sun rays today thoughx Penelope

  21. Beautiful snow is better than none at all, no matter how long it lasts. I hope your little ones enjoyed the white stuff.

  27. Oh the pure magic of snow - it has the power to beautify everything it lands on. According to the forecast there is more on the way - fingers crossed here for a little more magic before spring!

  28. Not a jot here...I've been studying the clouds hopefully...I know, I am silly but I love it and I WANT to be snowed in and keep him at home for a day or two! Beautiful thick fluffy stuff you had!I like the black twigs all drenched in snow, like robins feet...the way I draw them!

    Love to you -x-

  30. Hey Nina,

    Gotta agree with all the people above me. Your winter shots are beautiful and what the old lady said was right, it's a sad thing that the snow comes but doesn't stay because they are really very magical and full of wonders, provided if I don't slip and eat a mouthful of snow =P

    Its my first time here but I really love your blog because it's simple yet classy. Not overly pasted with banners or adverts or any other unnecessary things (hope I don't offend anyone else by saying this >w<).

    I've followed you on Google Friend Connect, so that I would get updates to your future post! Can't wait :D

    Love,
