An Invitation


You have been invited to a special event.

On this very cold day,
 the second day of the New Year,
the forest glitters with the lights of a thousand candelabras.

 Silverware has been polished and is out on display. 

Lights have been set to maximize the sparkle and shine.


Winter has decorated with her finest accessories and invites you to join her outside and share in her celebrations.

    1. Thank you Marian, usually we get a visual prize the colder it gets, I think it's to entice us outside :)

  5. Rosemary, stunning pictures! I think the branches were frozen and thin ice on them shines in sun rays. Doesn't it?

  11. How elegantly Winter sets her table. I always think of winter as a very refined season, even though it can have the harshest weather. But it just looks so very high class most of the time!

  12. Hi Rosemary, Thanx for your invitation. Great we also may enjoy your winter adventures. We have no more winter scenes in Holland. Irma and Joop already mentioned in their comments: + 10 C and it seems spring.

    Keep enjoying the winter but stay warm.

    1. I think we like to complain when it is cold, but miss it when it is not, right? I am enjoying the snow and the winter while I have it!

  13. Thank you for the invitation, I wish I could attend the event, it looks so lovely and inviting! Winter is so many different things, depending on where we live and the weather at any given day. Here in London, no day is the same, all year round, including winter. Every sunny, crips winter day is like a precious gift :-)
    Take care, Helene.
