It's cold..it's been snowing......


Woke up to this fantastic scene this morning. I know blogland will be FULL of gorgeous snowy pics..


But couldn't resist putting on the wellys and stomping out into it to take a few photos. My camera is unable to take any decent interior shots, but can pull out the stops outside!




Love this view of the church, as I was wandering around the graveyard I could hear the organ playing "once in Royal David's City". Obviously getting into practice for the carol service tomorrow evening.

I don't mind how many snowy pics there are in blogland - it's lovely to see them as we don't have any snow down here, just a bit of ice!
Take care everyone!

Thank you for your comments, it certainly was a stunningly beautiful day! xx

I don't know why, but there's something particularly poignant about overhearing organ practice in churches, especially when you're standing outside- the sound reverberates through the building and is quite different to when there's lots of people inside.

(This makes me sound like all I do is listen to churches echoing doesn't it!)
Keep warm xx

We finally had a decent (albeit thin!) layer of snow. Wasn't it just beautiful?

Lizzie said...

I don't like it!!!!!!!! Haven't been able to get the car out for two days as the Police have closed our road both ways. Live at the top of a hill called 'Everest road' !!!. Very apt. Someone in the planning dept must have had a sense of humour all those years ago!!!! xx Have a good Christmas xx Hope I can get out to do some shopping soon. xxx

I don't think you can have enough of these lovely photos of the snow - and how majical to hear carols from the Church - a notice has just been put on our church to say that the carol service has been cancelled!! Vicar can't make get here!

Gorgeous photos Liz...
I wouldn't worry about Blogland being full of snowy photos...its always nice to look back through your blog's archives now and then to see how the year panned-out...To look at snowy shots in August is fun...and is a reminder as to how quickly the seasons change.

Keep warm,
