First Country Snow

My Christmas wish came early. I was hoping for a white Christmas, I can’t remember the last time I had one. I know there are still about three weeks to go, but since the past couple of days have been so warm, I was thinking there was no way I was getting my wish.

The grassy knoll took on a frosty look

Falling gently, it was more like tiny hail balls

Good job I set about chopping wood early

Then the flakes began falling

And then it started stick

and we were covered in a veil of snow

The stream is still flowing

Cutting it's way through the land

The last of the leaves cling on

Everything looks so pretty covered in the first snow

Delicate puffs of snow where flowers once were

A reminder of summer, Tiny Terror's cement mixer buried in the gravel pit

A reminder of summer, Tiny Terror's cement mixer buried in the gravel pit

A dark pool of calm in a white flurry

Winter reflections

Time to go in for some Hot Chocolate

And the snow kept coming.

At dusk

The lights are all a glow

The lights are all aglow

An eerie stillness hangs in the air

A vintage postcard

A vintage postcard

As the sun rise, glimpses of orange glow through the trees

Over the hill and through the woods

Over the hill and through the woods

Evidence of guests in the night

A hint of warmth reflected in the icy depths
