Snowy Dawn

Roll up, roll up
Get your snow fix here

For your delectation and delight I bring you "Waking up to snow, Down the Lane"
Light Levels were too low really so forgive the wobby nature of these pics but I just had to get out there! Buster Boodle started barking at the snow at 5.50am!

Look at the ridiculous amount deposited on one of our garden benches!
Our rather sad barren winter garden has taken on a magical Narnian quality







Beloved crab apple tree looks more Christmassy than ever





The vegetable garden, shed and greenhouse look wonderful too



A day for staying by the fire and Making Christmassy things!

p.s I will, instead be trudging off to the shop to work! Luckily I can walk into the village from here x
p.p.s I wish you could have seen me in pjamas, winter coat, ugg boots and over excited chocolate lab giggling with delight in the snow at the crack of dawn! tee hee x

  3. It all arrived a week to early didn't it, how magical it would have been to have woken up next friday to your first heavy snow of the winter on Christmas day morning!
    It looks wonderful and I am very jealous, just a sprinkling here so far.

  9. So beautiful! We had some of the fun, with an overexcited Cocker Spaniel instead, slipping and sliding our way to school only to find it hadn't opened properly due to teachers not getting in! That's snow in the south of France for you... But yours is a whole lot prettier.

  10. Lovely photos, the low light makes them even more dramatic I think. We have some very thick snow here in London and it's still coming down. Hoorah for the Ugg boots!

  11. Oh 'wow' how lucky are you?

    We are still waiting for ours, but fingers crossed it will be us waking up to it tomorrow.

    Happy snowman building!

  20. It all came down here in the East yesterday and is still very white. Your garden pictures make it look wonderful. That's how I prefer snow, looking at a picture of it, but I have to pretend a bit more enthusiasm for two excited girls.

  23. Absolutely beautiful! Looks so peaceful. We had a "little" snow this time last year, but today it was 62 degrees, so no snow for us. Have a great weekend.

  24. Hi Sarah, you know I just had to write back and tell you I found an old post of yours that showed your beautiful garden in the Summer. I love your little green house, and your garden is so green and lovely! It was fun to see the contrast from winter to summer. Stay warm. :)
