lamp post… on snowy days I expect to me Mr Tumnus to appear...

lamp post… on snowy days my imagination expects to Mr Tumnus to appear…

“Meanwhile,’ said Mr Tumnus, ‘it is winter in Narnia, and has been for ever so long, and we shall both catch cold if we stand here talking in the snow. Daughter of Eve from the far land of Spare Oom where eternal summer reigns around the bright city of War Drobe, how would it be if you came and had tea with me?” – CS Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

 

Before breakfast and before Mass today I spent some time outside breathing in the fresh air and enjoying the last flakes of the snowfall. I love the different shapes the snow makes on each different tree in our yard, the delicate sculptures that are possible before sun comes out and melts it and changes everything.

  1. Gorgeous!

    No snow angels from you?

  2. What a beautiful look at the trees along your country lane. What always strikes me about snow is the quiet. It seems to mute everything, as if the whole world is made speechless by the pure white beauty.

  3. Nice shots. You really know your trees!
