Snow has finally arrived

This morning when we got up, we had a white world. So beautiful and the first time this year. Some views from my walk with Bibi this morning.

Toen we vanochtend opstonden, hadden we een witte wereld. Zo mooi! Hier een paar impressies van mijn wandeling vanochtend met Bibi.

A tree that fell down last week after lots of rain and heavy wind.
Een omgewaaide boom vorige week, na veel regen en harde wind.

This view never bores me!
Dit verveelt nooit! 

Smells are so strong in the cold and snow. Bibi never gets bored.
Geuren zijn zo sterk in de sneeuw en kou, dat Bibi zich geen moment verveelt.


Birds in our winter garden. Here you can see a sparrow looking for some food, which he found after some digging.

Vogels in onze winter tuin. Hier zie je een mus, op zoek naar voedsel. Na een beetje graven kon hij het dan toch eindelijk vinden.

 The robin was more clever. It decided to pick up the seeds under the table.
Het roodborstje was slimmer. Hij zocht naar zaadjes onder de tafel.

(Thank you Ulla, for linking me to Wikipedia to get a quick translation for the birds from Dutch into English!)

The snowfall certainly looks pretty. That's about the only nice thing I can say about snow!

Lovely photographs. We had some snow when we woke up this morning but it was gone by lunchtime.

Abby would love to romp around in the snow with Bibi! No snow here which is very odd. New snow is beautiful.

At last the snow! It is so pretty. We have finally gotten some too, but it sure isn't enough to seem like winter yet.

Ulla zei

Beautiful pictures; I can imagine the excitement of Bibi in the first snow of the winter. I love your robin pictures, here the bird is so timid that I have no good pictures of it. They come back in April.

Theresa zei

Lovely photos - it's just cold and frosty here - it would be nice to see a bit of snow, we've only had one little snow shower this winter.

Shari zei

Beautiful pictures of your walk with Bibi. We woke up to a lovely white world too this morning. It is not our first snowfall for this winter. Each time it snows we get rain shortly afterwards and the snow is gone. Today the temperature will go up to 7C. That is unheard of for our part of the world at this time of year. The snow should be gone by this afternoon.

Very pretty but please don't send it across the North Sea to us!

Het levert idd mooie plaatjes op, maar om erdoor heen te moeten rijden is een andere zaak. En het is ook zo koud!!!!
