Good morning! When I was taking a shower this morning my DH told me that the temperature is reading at -8 degrees celcius! Immediately, I got excited as I know what I was going to do today after the kids have gone to school.
But first here are some photos which I took yesterday with about 5cm of snow fall.
I thought I could show your how much snow has fallen by putting some colourful fruits on the snow. By the way, I also love the contrast of the colours against the pure white snow! Hmm! Guess what am I thinking now .... more cards from this inspiration?
Tried to catch some snow on the leaves
The falling snow
See that little pothole? This is our frozen pond and there are still fishes swimmning and that little pothole allows the fishes to catch their fresh air!!
Another photo from Maurice's bedroom overlooking the street
I was telling at the beginning of the blog that I knew what to do after the kids go to school. Well, I cycled to my favourite spot to catch some beautiful photos which I would like to share with you so that it will gives you some impression of where I live and the landscape of Holland.
It only took me 20 minutes to cycle to this spot - yes I cycled as this is typically a dutch culture. I must admit that it was not easy to cycle with so much snow but the speed was much slower then usual but I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the fresh crisp air!
Caught some lovely swans at the lake
typically dutch landscape with a glimpse of the sunrise
Still at the lake
Usually, I would see cows on this field but because the temperature is too cold for them, they are hidden somewhere.
I love this shot. Behind these beautiful trees is the highway
Wow! I'm so lucky to be able to catch a flock of ducks flying. I wished I could take a closer shot but I was too slow!!
Although the cows are hidden somewhere warmer, the sheeps seems happy to be outside in the cold
This canal is very lightly frozen
My dirty bicycle
