Early morning light on Thursday, photographed from the top floor of our house.
A layer of ice on the canal.
The view from the dining room window, Friday morning.
In the back garden: no footprints yet, just paw prints from the neighbour's cat.
Little Buddha, next to an outdoor light and turquoise stones.
Our snow-covered rowboat and deck. The Norwegian boat is made for manuevering fjords, although I doubt I could manage a rowboat through icy waters!
The horizon: still snowing on Friday, but ice in the canal has started to melt.
A Dutch train, with cars nearly empty of passengers.
Snow-laden mulberry branches.
A wreath of pinecones and berries next to our front door.
The weather forecast is for snow all weekend. Back soon with more wintery images. At the moment, I'm busy decorating our house for a dinner party Saturday. Bon weekend les tous!
P.S. Here's a short video that will warm your heart.
