Inside, Outside

I would rather be inside than outside at the moment. The snow finally came.

Yesterday the sky hung low with snow and then snowed for about 3 hours.

It then settled and the sky looked so dark and dirty compared to the pure white freshly fallen snow.

The snow lay like a thick insulation over the garden keeping the bulbs snug underneath.

It didn't snow today and tonight as the sun began to set the sky alternated between pink and blue.

The garden looked quite magical as dusk fell.

I went back into the sanctuary of my home and marvelled at the scenic view from my window, safe in the knowledge that I was protected from the elements outside and fortunate to have a place to keep warm inside the house.

I hope you all stay safe and warm this Christmas. x

My idea of bliss is a land full of snow! Love the photos with the pinky sky. Does Gizmo like the snow, or does he prefer to be curled up in the warm?

I certainly love the photos of outside taken from a gorgeously cosy inside! Merry Christmas!

I'd rather be indoors too ... it's freezing by us. Not as much snow as you ... but so, so cold!
Love Kathy xxx

Lovely skies recently, aren't there? Great pics. Yes, I'd hate not to have a warm home to go to just now. Hope there aren't too many homeless suffering.

Lovely photos! It looks so cosy and warm inside! I'm sitting indoors looking out this morning knowing that I must venture out in it today for a short while - I'll let it 'warm up' a bit first I think! Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas, Simone:)

Its always rather magical the way the light changes and reflects when there's snow on the ground. Your pictures capture this beautifully.

I loved seeing your beautiful snowy photos. The sky colours are so pretty and magical, and I love the big cushions of snow on everything in the garden. Have a cosy week, and a very Happy Christmas! Helen x
