Snow & Ice

“Our familiar garden by the sea has transformed . . . each bramble and bush laminated in a thick, crystalline coat, every amber blade dressed in its stiff raiment of frost. With a watchful step, I venture out on the crust of snow.” – Jennifer Kelland Perry, Endless Chill

Has winter arrived in your backyard?

  1. What a marvellous pic! I wonder what puss is thinking? It may seem cold for some, but our Christmases are all dust and kangaroos, and when it is 85 and up, you’ll find many of us wishing for snow!

  2. This is a great picture – I’m thinking your cat is wondering how he/she will navigate through the slippery ice! Winter has come in spurts here, as it always does in the northeast – snow, brutal cold, then 40 degree weather, then snow showers just to make the roads slippery!

    1. I love the clarity of this photo. It was one of the first ones I took with my new camera. Maisie didn’t stay out long that day! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Our weather was like yours until just recently. Now it seems the cold wants to stay. Oh well!


  3. It got very cold here (for Florida) and now we are looking at rain. We do not have the beautiful winters that you have.
    I have a question for you, Jennifer. I watched a show on Netflix that was all about Fogo Island Inn. Is that close to you? Have you been? It looks amazing and when they showed the surrounding scenery, it looked like photos you have posted on your blog, so I was curious. Thank you!

    1. Fogo Island is very close to us, just an hour away to get to the ferry. That said, the last time we were there, they were just beginning to build the inn. We plan to go back there next summer if all goes well. I noticed that too, how the scenery is very much like here.
      Interesting how you saw it on Netflix! ๐Ÿ™‚
