Without & Within



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Along the hard crust of deep snows,
To the secret, white house of yours,
So gentle and quiet – we both
Are walking, in silence half-lost.
And sweeter than all songs, sung ever,
Are this dream, becoming the truth,
Entwined twigs’ a-nodding with favour,
The light ring of your silver spurs...

Sorry I've been remiss at visiting blogs this week, since the snow thawed work has has been unusually busy - indeed you could say I've been snowed under teehee - but I'm looking forward to popping by all your lovely blogs again very soon!

  3. How beautiful everything looks in the snow. Are those chambray denim harems? I love those - I had a pretty similiar pair when I was a teen and I was devastated when I grew too big for them. The leopard trim jumper is so cute!

    1. It was bloody freezing! Not so much now, as the snow has thawed, but we were snowed in for a week so it was hard core cold outside, and gave lots of opportunity for photoshoots! Warm and cosy in the cottage though, thankfully :)

    1. Me too, windows are such beautiful framing devices for landscapes aren't they. Particularly when it's too cold to be outside for long!

  17. Oh such beauty! You are so lucky to have such a beautiful view from your home, it must be so cosy to be able to sit inside with a cup of tea and look out onto the snow covered fields :)

    1. It is beautifully cosy and great to look out of the fields with a cuppa, so true! It's an old cottage so it gets pretty cold though, have to have lots of open fires to keep warm enough!

    1. Ah thanks so much Kelly-Marie! We really are living in the deep country high, up a steep winding lane which becomes totally impassable when it snows! It meant lots of long walks into town to the train station, kept me fit!
