England's 'White' and Pleasant Land



It has been snowing here in England today









Our Collie cross, Honey, scampered about like a puppy, Snow on her nose.






Can you see the deer in the field?






Here I am under a snowy arbour. Unfortunately I had to swap my skirt for jeans!





Snow day
 
Fluffy flakes of muffled snow,
bring rosy cheeks, and hearts aglow.
A blanket soft that cuddles round,
and spreads its whiteness on the ground.
Pristine, pure, untouched by hand,
But soon our tracks transform the land.
Or rinsing out the white with rain,
It's then we hope for snow again

(feel free to use any of my poetry, but please attribute it to me. Thank you)

Dear Home-makers.  Just to let you know that I will be having a Giveaway very soon for followers of Heart for Home-making.

    1. Hello Ruth. Luckily we have nowhere we need to drive to in the next few days. I would not be so happy if we did!

  7. This is an interesting blog. I like your thrift tips especially the idea about looking through all your clothes. I find things I'd forgotten about. I reckon I could survive without buying more clothes for a long time.

  12. We have snow here too!

    It looks pretty for a while but it becomes ice too quickly and the paths are treacherous! I like snowy days when I can stay in with a cup of hot chocolate and a pile of letters to read! x

  16. Gorgeous. We have lots of snow but it is too cold for me. The high today was only about 3 degrees. I'm ready for spring! I'll be back to check out that arbor. I would love one.

  17. I just love snow. Ours is pretty icy/crunchy now, I'm hoping for some more snow - we had a few flakes today, but it didn't last. It's been fun playing with the girls sledging, thowing snowballs, making snowmen, and snow angels! Your pictures are very pretty. :)

  20. Wow, gorgeous pictures! I love snow, just as long as I don't have to drive in it, and just as long as my KIDS don't have to drive in it, and just as long as we have lots of heat and don't lose our electricity for a few days, lol!

  22. Oh my! That is a lot of snow! But it is beautiful too.
    We do not get much snow here in North Carolina. Once, maybe twice a winter.
    Your poem is wonderful! I would love to use it on my blog, with your name on it of course.
    Hugs,
    Terri
