❄️☃️ Winter (snow) *The King of Showmen* ✍️Thank you my dear friends, for your kind comments, notes & faves 💙😘

⛄️Winter is the king of showmen,

Turning tree stumps into snow men,

And houses into birthday cakes,

And spreading sugar over lakes.

 

Smooth and clean and frosty white,

The world looks good enough to bite.

That's the season to be young

Catching snowflakes on your tongue.

 

Snow is snowy when it's snowing

I'm sorry it's slushy when it's going.

📗. Hello my friends,

I found this photo buried deep in my files, and to be honest, that’s the best place for snow :-). Other than the initial “OMG I’m in heaven, the snow’s falling” ecstatic moment, that takes us back to childhood in the drop of a snowflake...... it soon becomes lingering, slushy and tiresome.

 

This picture was taken while out walking, in my neighbourhood.

And while my other snow scenes posted are of a landscape...

This is in contrast, shows (I hope) the magical effect it has, when covering a house and trees. It becomes (in my eyes) a true Winter Wonderland. ☃️❄️

 

Please feel free to add yourself, if you’d like to: I can assure you, it makes me very happy when you do... and although you are not physically stood there, on the street, ~ it brings you a little closer to my 💓

 

 

🚪 Doors open now, my friends... come on in !

No need to knock :-). Kettles on,☕️

~ make yourselves at home 🏠

 

... 😊🌻
