In the Bleak Midwinter

           Hello everyone,

It has been cold here the past few days but still
there is so much beauty to enjoy all
around us.

                                                          I have to admit I love a nice snow cover
                                                         in the winter and it is good protection for
                                                         my plants in the garden.
                                                         The Gardener's Cottage in winter.

                                                        A heavy silver freeze a few years ago.

This shot was taken on a country drive last winter.

                                                I took this shot of our little boathouse by the pond
                                                          a few days ago. Speaking of our pond I plan to don my
                                                          skates this afternoon and enjoy the crisp fresh air of
                                                          winter........anyone care to join me?

                                                                              Enjoy your day!

Your photos are beautiful, Carolyn. I especially love the one of the wood fence. It is so cold here today that I turn my nose up at winter and dream of Spring. Deb

Carolyn, I would love to join you for a skate on your pond. Does it really have a thick enough layer of ice so early in winter? Here in Ontario, it is much later in January and February when the natural ice is thick enough. You have such a beautiful setting. Enjoy your skate!

Gorgeous photos as always. You have quite a beautiful winter wonderland here. Not much snow here this winter and feels really weird.
