A few weeks ago, the sun was shining
And the diamonds danced on the snow.
A perfect day for a walk with my furry buddy, Oscar.
This boat has been adrift
On the snowy landscape all winter.
Our neighbours placed their impressive gingerbread church
Outside for us – and the birds – to enjoy.

On the way home, we crossed the railway lines
In time to see the train disappearing
In a magical golden mist.
I felt as if I were living out a dream
In this enchanted winter wonderland.

I used Jasc Paint Shop Pro to do the editing. One of my favorite muted color photos.

God made dirt and dirt don’t hurt, unless you’re buried 6ft deep in it. But then you’d be dead so it still wouldn’t hurt.
