Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Snow Spectrum


It’s March for goodness sake, not even early March come to that, frosts and snow showers are acceptable but not blizzards.

I’ve been feeling a bit better today,  I felt inspired enough (from the warmth of my desk) to get the camera out of the bag  and capture  the snow, as seen through a bowl of iridescent glass baubles

I was less keen about Jammy the kitten-cat and a bowl of baubles though.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Snow looks a lot nicer through glass. Thank you from across the sea where this winter won’t end either. It should be time for crocus and pansies, not snowbanks and down filled coats.

  2. Hell of a day, without the fire! Love the effect of the bulbs, shame it’s not the outdoor type:)

  3. The cat looks like a disaster ready to happen. They say this weather is going to go until the middle of April.

  4. I could use some rainbow tinted lenses to look though 🙂 I think that’s the only way I’m going to see anything beyond this monochromatic winter palette that’s determined to linger…

  5. Good to know that you’re feeling a bit better. As for the weather…! xx

  6. It’s supposed to be 80 degrees F in Houston today. (Don’t hate; we’ll pay for it in August & September!) Hope the snow melts and the sun shines soon.

  7. I don’t like snow. Never have done. This time it stymied a trip we planned to take so I double-don’t like it.

    Can snow be regarded as beautiful? I think we are too conditioned by the tradition of Christmas cards to think we like it. Snow is one thing seen through the window of a warm room but quite another when you are out in it. Think starving wildlife and dead sheep.
