Winter came a bitin ...

And then the snow fell!
We watched it from the window...

Bingley and Darcy

.. we sniffed the chilled air but didn't venture out ...
(until we were plonked outside by Mrs H, and then we quite liked it!)



... look closely ...
and you can spot Mr Bingley heading your way ...

Mr Darcy testing snow depth ...

... Mrs H walked out for bread and milk ....


... then we had a family outing in the park so we could all revert to childhood ..

  6. my dear old cat PC used to walk up the kitchen path to the top of the garden in the snow, then turn around and follow his own footprints back so as not to get his old paws cold twice!

  7. Very picturesque and probably not likely to last, which would be a good thing. LOL.

    Our temps are heading down to -28C with the windchill this week, so we're ready to see an end to winter's bite!

  9. Hello my dear friends Mr Bingley and Darcy.
    I do hope you remember your boots when you ventured out into your winter wonderland. I see your fur coats are all puffed up with extra insulation. How long did it take Mrs. H to walk to the grocery store and back.


    Our adora is still on track for blooming. My peeps were told it has white blooms but thus far the buds are all dusty rose. Mom is taking pictures to document is progress.
    Of course we'll send Mrs. H a picture.
    Hugs madi your BFFF and Mom

  19. Lovely photos again Helen. Marmalade has yet to venture out since this latest round of snow.She doesnt even seem to sniff the air anymore when you open the door! Maybe its her old bones or she just knows when she is well off! Keep warm.

    Darcy and Bingley, we think you are quite brave venturing outside. Surely it must be cold on your paws!

  25. I LOVE those first fresh snowprints in the snow. I am half snowfox after all! We are having quite a lot of snow this winter but the forecast for next week is much milder weather so I guess it's good bye snow. Love the family fun!
