    1. Thank you, Kate, you are very kind. Still experimenting with the settings on my camera so it's a bit hit and miss at the moment! E x

    1. Hope you get a bit of snow just because it's so pretty but by now I shall be quite glad for it to thaw properly - now it's compacted and icy it's a bit of a nightmare getting out of my drive and H makes pointed remarks about "power-sliding" to which i reply it's not "power-sliding, it's "can't-help-it-sliding"!

      PS How was NY? Can't wait to hear all about it! Especially P Soho!

    1. Yes, it is quite archetypal I suppose! But most places look gorgeous in the snow - I love the effect it has. E x

  7. wowsers, they are a brilliant show of photos. What a lovely place to live in! (I assume you haven't just popped out and scoured the countryside for picturesque locations?!) Your soup looks wonderful too - full of health and warmth. Sigh...

    1. Yes, this is where I live and yes, it is picturesque! Not always as picturesque as in the snow though! I always make vast quantities of soup in the winter - internal central heating! This one had to be made with what there was in the house owing to being unable to drive to any shop - an onion, carrots (a little over 1kg), red lentils (about 100g), stock and a bunch of fresh dill that I found in the fridge and appeared to be still in the land of the living! Turned out peasanty (a good thing in my book!) and very delicious! E x

  8. What a beautiful set of photos - snow makes everywhere look amazing. I can just imagine the seed heads as a screen print on a cushion.
    Do you still have white snow lying on the ground? We still have it on the fields and back roads, but thankfully the main roads are clear.

    1. What a lovely idea! They are very sculptural aren't they? I love Queen Anne's lace, even when like this in winter. Yes we do still have quite a bit of white snow on the ground - the chickens are fed up with it! Most of the roads are fine now, it's just my drive, which currently resembles an ice rink! E x

  10. Que c'est joli chez toi !!! Nous avons eu aussi de la neige, mais en ville, elle perd un peu de sa magie !
    Bises !

    (P.S. As-tu reçu ma carte provençale, et son savon ?)

  11. Bravo pour la neige! Mais je serai assez contente de la voir fondre maintenant - mes poules ne l'aiment pas du tout et elles deviennent un peu "stir crazy"!!! Non, je n'ai pas encore reçu ta carte - je l'attends avec plaisir! E x

  12. Your local area looks unbelievably beautiful in the snow, like something from a post card. That soup looks very tasty. I think the best thing about the snow is the bit when you come inside, all red cheeked and cold, and warm up with soup or hot chocolate.

  14. What beautiful photos Elizabeth. I love the one of the seedheads against snow covered hill, such lovely framing.

    I hope your chickens are a bit happier now it is melting.
