Well, after a lot of hoping, wishing and more than my fair share of moaning.. I woke up this morning to see my area covered in a blanket of snow! How beautiful! After hurriedly eating my breakfast, I grabbed my camera and headed out into my garden to capture the beauty before it melted. To my surprise, the snow stayed put for at least a few hours and absolutely nothing has been able to spoil my good mood today ever since (that's not a challenge!).
Over the past month or so, I've seen beautiful snow scenes from around the world on some of my favourite blogs and so after a particularly mild British winter this year, I'm so excited to finally be immersed in a 'true' winter. The only downside with a temperature hovering at 1°C has been the inability to leave the house without wearing ski socks, thermals and every other extra layer you can think of!
Interestingly enough, I realised whilst looking through old photos on my laptop that I have been taking photos of the swing set in my garden (partially shown below) every winter for six consecutive years! Not only has it been fun to see how my photography has improved over that time, but it's been fun reminiscing about previous heavy snowfall..
I hope you're all enjoying equally beautifully snowfall in your area - that is, if you want it!
