Tenacious Winter, She Breathes, She Does Not Yet Sleep.






But close you eyes against the sun, for this golden haze will bring a memory,
a memory to warm your skin.

I am longing for Spring...

Your photos of a frosty morning, chilly and crisp looking... The first one with the field and the light of the sun breaking through is magical.

Anne said...

Beautiful photos it will soon be Autumn down here.....
We didn't have a very hot summer down here this just a very wet one!...

Mimi said...

Spring light is definitely shining through in your photos.
I'll be sorry to say goodbye to winter, I enjoyed the snow so much!

I get lost in the third picture down--tree branches against the sky. Very atmospheric.

Millie said...

Such lovely photos!
We have been having the most wonderful skies here with all this clear weather. But I am ready for Spring to arrive.

Still looks mighty frosty over there...yesterday I walked in the hills and found little signs of spring all around me. But one never knows when winter can shock us still! Lovely thoughts and pictures.

Lovely photos as always. Around here it is warm enough for the bulbs in the ground to be getting 'ideas'.

i want to sit under that last photo and let the water run all down my face. come on spring. i am hating winter less this year, but yearning for the light.

Gigi said...

Gorgeous photos, Ciara. That last one fills me with such longing! We are supposed to get another foot of snow this week, and honestly, I don't know where in blazes we'll shovel the stuff. There's no room left to pile it around our house. Ah, the joys of city living in a very snowy part of the world. The one comfort is that the days a growing longer. I gobble up every minute of sunlight that I can!

Hope you are well, dear one. xo Gigi

Tenacious winter, tenacious taxes, tenacious emptiness of the fridge. I sure could do with some warming.

Kato said...

I love this. Especially the ice crystals on the grass. I havent seen grass in months!

Beautiful pictures.

Hey Ciara!
I've been a reader of your blog for a while and I found a blog that I thought you might like.
It is quite similar to "Childhood Magic".

Even the sunny days are quite chill, but they lighten the heart and give strength to endure the Hungry Gap
