Winter Bliss !

Hello everyone,
  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. We are having some colder weather this weekend but it has been usually mild up until now. I try to go for a walk most days even in winter as the fresh air and exercise makes me feel good. Maybe you would like to come along with me today.


We have a small woods on our property with a  little brook going through it. It is so relaxing to hear the sound of the brook in winter or summer.


Gathering some boughs for a winter arrangement.

The sun is trying to peek out so maybe you would like to wrap up in a quilt and cathch a few rays!




The  shot of our woods  above was taken a few weeks ago after a heavy snowfall.


I played in picnik for a few minutes to give this a winter effect.





I don't usually subject you to photos of me but a walk in the woods just wouldn't be the same without a guide. My husband was the photographer today.

I hope you enjoyed coming along on a woodland walk with me. Now, a cup of hot cocoa is in order don't you think?
Today, I am joining with The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Hope you have time to visit there if you haven't already.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Carolyn

What wonderful subjects for a photo shoot. Exquisite. I imagine your woods and gardens beckon you in all seasons. Enjoy.

Carolyn, I thought perhaps this was your daughter. You can't possibly be a grandmother! These photos are amazing. They could be a photo shoot in a professional magazine. You submit them for publication.
Thanks for taking us along on this lovely snowy walk. Your winter white outfit is beautiful and as is the snow covered woodland scene. ~ Sarah

Hi Carolyn
It was nice to join you for a walk to see pure white, undisturbed snow.
Where you're standing beside the brook looks so tranquil.
We're at -16C this morning.

It is nice to see you Carolyn~you are very pretty and you look very put together in your winter whites! I think it is a good idea for bloggers to include themselves on occasion to their viewers so we can feel more like friends.

Quelles jolies photos et quel gracieux modèle tout en blanc dans la neige ! Superbe ! Tu es bien courageuse de te promener ainsi par ce qui semble tout de même être un froid glacial !
Belle semaine à toi !

Denise@alloverroses said...

I think if I looked up the word "Beautiful" in the dictionary I would see a picture of you in your garden! Thank you for always making my day!

Southerncook said...

Such beautiful photos and you have a way of making that winter wonderland so charming. I also enjoyed seeing pics of you. You are a beautiful lady however, my mother always told me that true beauty comes from within. In your case I do believe that both apply, you are such a lovely lady. I do admit to one thing, I am really glad that I don't have to deal with snow living in N FL. I can enjoy it as much with your photos that you share.
