|Daybreak on Monday morning.|
|Snow on the fig tree.|
|The flowers from our grandson are still fresh.|
|This year's white hyacinth has a strong perfume.|
|A collection of coloured glass catches my attention|
as I look out of the kitchen window.
We haven't been completely snowbound, but it seems as if the snow has been with us much longer due to the fact that it hasn't been melting.
We were glad to be able to get out at the weekend when the snow was lighter, but these last few days we've had heavier snowfalls. Our granddaughter's high school was closed, but her brother's primary school wasn't. Different events have been cancelled. I've felt lethargic and yesterday I was glad that I could take a short walk. The snow, in fact, is quite dry and powdery and it has been easy to walk where the pavements have been cleared. The danger is the ice underneath the snow on routes that have not been cleared or gritted.
Today there has been a few hours of sunshine and signs of a slight thaw.
|A walk around the neighbourhood.|
|Today - blue skies and some sunshine.|
|Gino is also happy to go in and out, but soon comes home and is pleased to|
snuggle up beside us when the temperature drops and the afternoon turns to evening.
