Clever gambit, wonderful white world!Aloha, Friko
yay! we got snow as well....been out playing all morning...broke a sled going over a jump we made...haha...
How beautiful, Friko. Better the artistry of snow than the simple inconvenience of rain and mud.
Beautiful snow scenes, but I am not looking forward to when it comes here. A perfect snow for me is one that is melted in one day. It looks like you will have that stuff around for quite awhile.
you just posted these to thumb your nose, since we did not get the promised snow!
Lovely and so beautifully captured, Friko. Thanks for sharing.
staat wel heel leuk.
Lovely photos. It looks so cold and invigorating.FlowerLady
You have had far more snow than we have! We are cold, cold, cold though.
That's a lot of snow, even more than over here!
It must be freezing! But very pretty. For a nutty moment, I thought the second picture was a real person.
Very pretty, at a distance, and fun for children. Otherwise, the stuff of nightmares!
As it happens, we are, too. But probably not for long.
Looks so mysterious and lovely. I love that 'silence' you get while the snow is falling. As for the hats -- it amazes me to see how many in this country just never ever wear them. My husband will not wear a wooly winter hat. He says he looks ridiculous -- in that supercilious way the British have of disdaining the practical. Instead he dons a brimmed sailing hat -- now tell me, which sounds ridiculous to you? '-)
Where is the woolly hat for the dog in photograph one?
...and gloves and scarves and boots. :-) Super photos, Friko - I especially like the last one.
Just watched the evening news....they had pictures of your snowfall. Makes for wonderful pictures.Balisha
Beautiful snow! But cold! Keep your hat on!
Looks like a proper winter. Our predicted snow didn't happen, but no regrets here.
Yes! if one looks, there really are hats everywhere Friko.
Quite the snowstorm! Apparently, it even required the shuffling of musicians at a concert in London today that featured the London premiere of Qigang Chen's gorgeous reflect d'un temps disparu (one of the pieces I heard in Wales.) But, I'm glad to report, the show went on & I was able to hear it live on BBC Radio 3. Odd programmatic mix that included Elgar's Overture Cockaigne, Raymond Yiu The London Citizen Exceedingly Injured World premiere, and Haydn Symphony No. 104 in D, 'London.' Anyway, hope you and yours are safe, warm, and dry, and that this comment goes through . . . (I can't begin to explain the contortions-and, as you'll see if the comment does go through, it takes you to my old blog. I love getting out from behind the computer with this new iPad, but this functionality limitation is a real problem. Ah, we'll, where there's a will. . .)
These are really great pictures!www.modernworld4.blogspot.com
Must admit to being a tad jealous - we could use some of the snow cover you have. Betting Millie is having a great time!
I've waited all day to comment here - I first read this earlier today, before anyone else had commented. For some reason my comment wouldn't publish, so now that I'm home from work I'll try again. I wanted to say that the photos were more Alberta than Shropshire. I hope you have the boots, mitts and cosy coat to go with the hat!
Hurray - you finally got a sprinkling of snow. So much fun to be had!
Super pictures, Friko.
Hi Friko - the weather is definitely worse with you than down here .. in fact ours is melting somewhat now (I'm pleased to say) ... Love the photos ... especially the fence, and the tiered 'Christmas cake' ... bet you need your hat and mitts ... cheers Hilary
OMGEEEE!! Did you get the snow....we got some snow but mostly just very very cold, Brrrr...we are wearing hats, gloves, and wrapped in blankets!haHugsSueAnn
Beautiful photographs of a beautiful place. Children certainly appreciate the snow. How fortunate you are. Winter here is grey and wet many days, although sometimes the sun shines on the blooming helebore and snowdrops. My Lenten Rose is blooming and I am so thrilled. A few years back I thought it was a goner. Dianne
You got some snow, all right. I think wearing hats is essential in this kind of weather, but the snow hats, not so much! :-)
Same scenery here ! and all my little cat statues in the garden have now hats ready for Ascott !
Looks like the pooch is having a ball. There's something to be said for perfectly tailored fur coats.
The fourth down isn't a photo of a snowbound Afghan hound , is it ?
I was wearing a white hat like the roofs are after doing bus duty for 30 minutes at the end of school yesterday ...
Great captures of a white world! I am still waiting - no snow in sight for the next 10 days. Enjoy yours, Friko.
I know there are people who don't like snow but I'm not one of them. Lovely photos of your winter.
Was für eine Freude ! Viel Spaß.
My daughter texted from UK telling me she got off early on Friday due to the snow! Having lived in Canada she was surprised at all the closures.Lots of beauty when that stuff covers everything in its cloak of white. I also love the quiet that comes with the snow.
Lovely pics, we are in our own white world here, love it.XOWWW
Nice snow hats ... didn't realize you got so much of the white stuff in England. Thought you had a maritime climate.
Yes, snow hats. I had an e-mail from an English friend recently when he said, about the snow, that at least his garden looks tidy - Dave
Aaah - snow..beautiful snow!!! Love it!
Beautiful..No big snow in my area as of yetand I am so isolatedreally do not miss it.But it may arrive yet...
We have snow, too, and I shall have to venture out soon to replenish the bird feeders . . . brrr! The children are enjoying it and the air smells so clean.
This looks very cold to me – I am writing this as I watch the sun outdoors in the 60 F (16 C) degree weather. It also seems to me that it is a warm cup of tea weather – I mean drinking it indoors while watching the weather from a distance.
Brrrr. but that's how I like snow...in pictures. I'll take a warm hat over a snow hat any day.
Wonderful photos -- looks as though you are "enjoying" the same weather we are, though you might have a little more snow -- it's just frigid here, with a bit of snow. Keep warm. I wish I could say I'm doing a good job at it, but I'm trying!
Comments are good, I like to know what you think of my posts. I know you'll keep it civil.
