The only thing certain is change – February has been filled with
surprise weather conditions, and as we welcome the return of
running water after days of ice, we awoke to snow falling.
Its transient beauty transformed the Mas and forest for a few
hours, yet as the day wears on, not a trace remains of what was;
a soft blanket concealing spring’s arrival.

    Love Mina dusted in white – so pretty! And the heartsies? covered in ice! Magic winter wonderland again! xx Thank you for sharing the lovely images 🙂

    • Thank you! Mina was excited to explore but is equally happy by the fire… I have to rush out into the snow as it is still a novelty and takes me back to childhood…today we are completely ‘in the clouds’ and the contrast is incredible. I hope you have a lovely sunny day xxx

        Yes, snow flurries are always a treat! Always love the pure white light that happens when it’s snowing/snowed! Here we have bucketing, torrential, unrelenting rain, rain, rain!!! All verging on flooding! Crazy weather! Keep warm :)xx

  2. Beautiful photos as always. I love the little puffs on snow as they cling to those blossoms. Perhaps they’ve already disappeared but the capture is so lovely in your pictures as always.
