We love the white stuff!

Just before Christmas we woke to this lovely scene...

Snow glorious snow!


The skies were like oil paintings from the past......


Everything coated ......


Jam Jam loving being a wild snow cat!


A trip to the park to have some fun......




The trees and shrubs looking like icing on a cake!


After being snowbound in a city we escaped to Glouscestershire for Christmas and returned to spend a glorious New Years Day out on the Downs with great friends.

The walk was breathtaking and the light was stunning.......



Can you see the glider above the hill!



Such a beautiful walk.......



Cold but out of this world!
Then we woke on Tuesday morning to yet MORE snow!
Can you guess what this picture below is?


An igloo!


We have SO much snow it took me back to the early 80's when my brothers and sisters and I built an Igloo because of so much snow!




Its so lovely to see the children out in the street playing snowball fights....




Once again we are snowbound, so quiet, no cars NO school!




Icicles!



BLUE BLUE skies!




Even the chimney's look beautiful!





I took so many photo's, I want it to last..........



...But my favourite is my son in his EdGloo!

Love your snow pictures... unlike many, I am not fed up with the snow yet!!! Probably because I've been holed up with a bad back... feeling about 95!!!! I remember when I was a child the snow filled the lanes right up to the top of the hedges... whilst we were walking in it my dad just disappeared from sight... he had managed to find a very soft spot... as you can imagine, us children just rolled about in the snow, laughing our heads off!!!! Such fun, carefree days!!!!
Thanks for the reminder

Wow, these photos make me jealous. I'm originally a country girl, and I'm feeling a bit pent up because I haven't been out of a city (been between Toronto/London) since early June!

Don't have a car, but have to get out of London SOON.
