A very warm welcome to a winter’s Friday Fave 5!
1. So, I’d like to begin my Friday blessing list with the gift of winter days.
I love living in a place with four distinct seasons ~ including winter.
3. Around the woodstove is wonderful on stormy days, but on clear days? It’s time to head outdoors. I finally bought proper winter gear this year – a new down coat and a good pair of snowboots. What a difference! My feet never get cold anymore and I have a fur-lined hood to protect my face if it’s windy. You can’t enjoy the beauty if you’re freezing. But I’m never cold in my new winter outfit. No selfies yet, but just imagine me walking in comfort down this snow-covered country lane.
4. Another gift of winter? Snow photography. A winter without snow doesn’t give offer many photographic opportunities. But a winter with snow hides all the bareness and seems to warm the landscape with a white woolly blanket.
5. As lovely as all that is, the real magic happens in the interplay of sun and snow.
Have you ever seen sunlight strike sparks on frosty twigs?
And I haven’t even mentioned snow-play yet.
I guess that’s another post. 🙂
