Snow Pretty

Hello Lovelies,
 we were lucky enough to get a good amount of snow here on Saturday night.The boys were more than a little excited by this .By 9.15 am on Sunday we were here.......


Before most sensible people had thought about setting out in the cold......


My boys really love sledging and I love watching their excited faces , cheeks rosy from the cold.


There's a wonderful view of the wintry landscape from up here too......




After a couple of hours it's back home to defrost.......hot chocolates for the boys ...



The house is particularly light with all the snow on the ground and my first bunch of Daffodils this year are just opening up .They look so bright and cheerful.......


Just gorgeous.......


As soon as we defrost the boys get a call to go and play with friends . I'm happy to walk them , the roads look   special with their wintry frosting..........





It's midday  and the sun is melting the snow on the branches quickly now.....


I decide to have a little walk before it's all gone.........


Along the snowy path I spot some livestock...



I'm glad these guys are behind two fences.But don't they look gorgeous in the snow...............


More creatures with four legs........


It's so quiet , the only sounds are my footsteps in the snow..........


Nearly home and these guys made me smile...they have mince pies for eyes(somebody likes their cockney rhyming slang ).........


Later in the day ,after a hot meal ,we even went out again. Back to the same slope, where the run is much faster now .The sun is setting but the children (and parents)  are having too much fun to notice the cold........




Actually I notice the cold, my fingers and toes are numb and I want to leave. But it was a fabulous day .....

  5. Looks fab - wish we had a decent hill for sledging nearby.

    Got to make the most of these snowy days - my 2 were outside after school tonight pelting each other with snowballs and playing snow rugby again.

  9. What beautiful soft light you have in those pictures. I love the cattle - I bet they're not cold! I can see your boys had an amazing time on that hill, just perfect for sledging. No snow for us in Cornwall, my fault as I bought a sledge back in October!

  16. Oh Jacquie, what a wonderful day........beautiful photos.

    Love the Highland cattle either side of the gate like sentinels and the branches with their covering of snow.

    The last pic with it's muted tones, silhouetted trees and moon with the diehard sledgers is stunning.

    I imagine you enjoyed a number of warming drinks after a day in the snow.

  29. Life kinda' stops for a snow day doesn't it, I always think they're days out of time ... everything is different - sounds, smells, even tastes somehow - and special. Sadly for me, the mega snow lover, not a flake fell here in North Wales.
