Ice Sculpture

Someone sent me this image via email with the obligatory attached chain letter regarding guardian angels, friends and of course not breaking the chain. Whilst the chain letter irritates me beyond belief, I like the image, so I thought I’d post it here (bar the yukky chain letter).

Some people’s talent amazes me!

Suburban Seasons

When taking pictures during the snow fall this past week, I realized I was taking the exact same picture that I had taken during the fall this year. So that gave me the idea to create a series of 4 pictures over the course of the year, to show the seasonal changes. So far I only have the Fall and the Winter. I simply love the contrast!

The pictures are of a tree (the foremost one in particular) and its surrounds, across the road from our house. For some reason that tree always calls to me. There is something about the ugliness of the telephone wires and unpaved driveway contrasted against the beauty of the tree.  After actually looking at the pictures electronically, I can see they are not exactly the same photo, as they are from slightly different angle, but I think they’re close enough for my little project.

Winter’s Back

It’s snowing!

I should be working, but here I am, sitting in my living room, with my laptop on my lap, blanket wrapped snugly around me, writing this post and watching the snow fall. And it’s beginning to stick now. Yay!

It is magical and beautiful!

I grew up in a warm southern hemisphere climate and so snow is still very much a novelty to me. I feel all sparkly when I see it. The inconvenience of it doesn’t worry me in the least. I just love it. Crazy I know.

I was beginning to think that we’d had winter and that spring was coming. It’s been so crazy warm not cold. I guess global warming is to blame.

Cottontail RabbitJust last night I saw two little bunny rabbits hopping around, one in our very own backyard, and I said to B, my hubby “That’s weird. I’ve not seen rabbits in winter hopping around before. It’s almost like it’s spring.” Of course he thought that was an inane comment, because of course there are rabbits around in winter. But from my perspective, there are masses of them around in spring, so I guess I just associate rabbits with spring.

So anyway….I am really glad it still winter because I want loads and loads of snow, I want to be snowed in, I want to have snow days and I want to go snow tubing. I just hope those little bunny rabbits are warm and cosy in their burrows!
