It finally snowed!

There was no snow predicted for this weekend. In fact, the weather report mentioned it would start getting warmer again. So imagine my surprise when I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland. As giddy as a small child, I couldn’t wait to get up and start exploring the snow.


And I wasn’t the only one that couldn’t wait to get out. My doggie, an 11,5 year old German Shepherd, is normally best described as a gentle giant. Add a little snow to that and you’ve got yourself an overactive puppy, it’s incredibly cute to see. Look at those puppy eyes!

We don’t usually get snow very often, and it’s easy forget how it completely transforms the landscape. Loads of people were out and about and everyone seemed cheerful 🙂

My original plan for today was to use the opportunity of having spare time whilst it’s light outside to take some FO pictures, but obviously I used up those hours frolicking around in the snow. So the FO post will have to wait until tomorrow, it’s likely the snow will have melted by then anyway.

  1. What a beautiful dog, very photogenic. The pictures are beautiful too, we haven’t had any snow where I live this winter. It does make it very scenic x

  2. frolic some for me, too, OK???? We’ve had some flurries that melted before even hitting the ground. I wanted to count it as a snowfall, but I just couldn’t! great photos!

  3. Wow, that is a lot of snow! Beautiful photos. We haven’t had any snow at all, though it did get near us. Not that I mind! I think the only time we need snow is at Christmas.

  4. It looks so beautiful and peaceful! And your puppy looks so happy. Rufus loves being out in the snow, too. He’s much more built for Canada than I am.

  5. You live in a beautiful spot and your sweet dog seems to know exactly how to enjoy all the white fluffy stuff! Very beautiful.
