Winter Wonderland

We had a wonderful walk along the Water of Leith today. It really is a winter wonderland at the moment, the snow is incredibly thick on the paths and in the trees. Crafty Green Boyfriend took these photos. I think the third image may be useful as a Christmas email photo!




If you do go along the Water of Leith while the snow is still around, do be careful as the paths are deep in snow (with unexpecetd holes appearing sometimes) and there are a lot of branches that are so loaded with snow that they're hanging very low over the paths.

Your photos are really nice. I cannot believe winter is coming so fast already it seems like summer was just over.

I heard about your storm on the radio yesterday, so I was hoping to see some photos. These are nice.

brrr!
but looks lovely!

I only eat one type of peanut butter that has no palm oil in it. (according to the label) and it is Original Sun Pat smooth. Though for some strange reason the other versions of Sun Pat use palm oil.

I think I shall have to visit Gorgi Farm to see the waxwings! and the residents! never seen a waxwing before

I adore the Robin photo, Juliet; the perfect Christmas e-card! Thank you for sharing it with us all. We've not got much snow, but our boiler has packed up ... it's going to be cold ...

The snowy paths may be dangerous, but they still beckon!
