Window snow framing


The light changed very quickly this afternoon. Within an hour the bright white snow got lit by the sunset then became night…

If, like me, you love the sun and feel all happy and smiley when it pokes it’s head from out of the clouds then you will have been pretty chuffed as we’ve had a couple of sunshine filled days. Spring blossomOK, it’s still not time to chuck the winter coats to the back of the wardrobe and please, don’t start wearing your flip flops yet. Continue reading
