We start with this morning and we've just had our first snow of the winter. N and I have just returned from sledging...
This last photo puts me in mind of a little poem, "Snow Song", from this lovely book (which is currently available form the Book People for a mere £4.99)...
I like Mark Hearld's artwork which is why I bought the book but the texts accompanying the illustrations are very enjoyable too.
Here's the slow movement of the Bruch for you to enjoy while browsing a few (ahem!) photos of various walks taken from the beginning of Dec back through to the end of Oct.
While we're here, here were this year's Halloween decorations - bats and pumpkins featured heavily...
...and we went to the fireworks, which some found a little loud...
The cows in the field across the road have been and gone.
And I've had a few lucky finds in the charity shops. I've always wanted a proper sewing box. I found it in a charity shop while out for a Saturday morning walk (it was too icy for cycling). It was a long and awkward carry home as I also bought a few books and some messages while I was out.
And lastly, we've had a few lovely sunrises recently. They are best viewed from my daughter's window...
...Starlight, Aeroplane approaching, Sunrise, Red sky.
Up to date at last, phew!
Snow here as well, but it's so wet everywhere it's not sticking. Cold as well, but it is winter I suppose!!
Welcome back! What an altogether beautiful post.. music, scenery, yummy cake, gorgeous little robins, a sweet cat... a lovely child and so much more... you made my short lunch break seem like a holiday! Thanks! Hugs, Jill x
I love the photos from your very frosty walk. Juliex
how lovely to gaze at your photos with the music in the background. Maybe musical accompaniment could be a feature of future posts too?
The Bruch's great (though for me the Sibelius one is the tops). Who are you playing with?
Great photos too :)
Some of those photos literally made me shiver! That cake looks very tasty!
It is so good to see you back posting. Love the pictures, but is the fifth one down inverted? Or is it just my eyesight?!
Marvellous music too.
Lovely to catch up! No snow here but plenty of rain!
I just love your photos and really enjoyed your post! X
What a treat Anne, your photos are all wonderful. I love the landscapes and your thrifty finds are gorgeous too. That book looks lovely .
I'm aware I haven't payed it forward yet....that must be a year now ...oops. I will do it after Christmas.
Goodness you have been busy! No snow here but it's very cold. Lovely photos from your walks and we've been enjoying some truly stunning sunrises and frosty mornings here too. x
Gorgeous photo's, as always, love to have a look at your corner of the world, through your eyes. Like the Pikachu, youngest had put a rather big one in his room again, which frightened our cat Zorro. Groetjes, Gerda
The music makes the perfect background - everything looks even more lovely with that violin playing!
So many wonderful shots - the icy reflection, the needlefelted birds, the frosty barbed wire (in fact the frosty everything) ... the teazels (?) in silhouette. I envy you the snow - we've only had a few swirly flakes so far.
It looks like a proper start to winter, with ice, frost and snow ... I need to move north!
Loved the Bruch, thank you. My daughter used to play this back in the days when she wanted to make music her life. Instead she went off to university to study to become an archivist and hardly ever seems to pick her violin up anymore.
I am envious of your snow. Beautiful photos. And seeing Pikachu brings back memories.
The perfect musical accompaniment to go with your stunning photos Ann......
Still trying to figure out the 5th pic in....stunning reflections and I love the ploughed field and the view through the runnel.
You just have the most picturesque country side whatever the season. I want to grab my passport and come visit.....
I have a been a little slow in planting my Sunflowers, so I hope they all come up and put on a nice display this season.
