a tad chilly

I wouldn’t be surprised if the majority of New Zealand based blogs featured images of snow today. The garden, cottage, studio and our little rural town looks beautiful. Quiet, peaceful, gentle. The shots below were taken early this morning just as it turned light.

    Que? To the lack of central heating?
    You’ve just put me off emigrating

  6. snowy NZ made the news here in the UK!

    Alison you made it look lovely as usual!



  7. Don’t you feel like hanging up the Christmas lights!?

    Thank you for the beautiful embroidered pillow and pouch. I gave it to a friend for her birthday. Can’t wait to see the new website.

  8. Stunning! In Lyall Bay Wellington it snowed (amazing!) but melted as it touched the ground.

  9. They just don’t have it here. I imagine because it would be so expensive to run. Maybe it’s because of the earthquakes as well? Most people have heat pumps or log burners. Perfect for making your home nice and toasty.x

  10. Did it really Catherine? It’s very unusual for us to get snow in the township. Drove to the next town today and the snow is still on the foothills. It looks lovely.

  11. You’re so right Marilyn. But then I always feel Christmassy in July and August here. In fact, we always celebrate Christmas on winter solstice. It’s great having two Christmases!
    So pleased you liked your goodies.

  12. So no chance of making a snowman then ebrown? I hear that there’s more snow to come!

  13. Sigh! That gorgeous white snow light. I bet outside sounded beautifully muffles too
