I know where the snow fairies live

The fallen tree looked like some sort of forest creature.
Last week, the little forest where I walk with Meeko was magical. Every single tiny branch was covered with snow. I don't think the photos do justice to how very special it was. And I was very lucky as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds just as I started taking photos, so there were beautiful shadows on the snow.
If there are snow fairies (and why wouldn't there be?), this is without a doubt where they live.

  1. Love it when the snow looks like that! The magic doesn't last, so it's lovely you had a chance to capture a bit of it! Thanks for sharing, Kathleen! :)

    1. I know. I didn't have my camera initially and had to drop ChloƩ off somewhere before I could go back. The whole time I was saying to myself 'please still be there, please still be there' and it was. I was very lucky.

  3. Oh Kathleen, they sure live in your neck of the wood, and not in mine LOL
    Thank you for the dose of magic, just what I needed, really.
    xoxo to you & Meeko sweetheart

    1. I'm sure you have fairies of another kind. A big kiss from Meeko.

  4. Having only seen snow very very briefly on my last visit to the U.S. (over a decade ago), these photos are a real treat. I never thought snow could collect on the sides of trees like that. Just beatiful!

    Still stinking hot down here, with a cat4 cyclone on the way, ho hum....

  5. Now it makes sense why the snow always looks twinkly when the sun comes out, snow fairy dust! I can see them flitting about in teeny little colorful hats and wooly striped socks... :)))))) Great pictures!
