Tree Project - The Snow Edition

Remember how I said it didn't snow in Hull?

Well last night, while I was glued to Strictly Come Dancing (go Chris!!), it fell. It fell and fell and fell.

And I looked outside the window and saw that Mr Tree had a lovely coat of snow. I immediately raced outside, camera in hand, to capture the moment.

"It'll still be there in the morning" the boyfriend said.

"Yeah but....what if it isn't? know....I want to play in the snow." was the reply.

So I went down to capture his snowy moment.

I think he looked rather beautiful don't you?

And after having a little stomp in the snow and building a miniature snowman, I came back inside to warm myself up and do a little project (I'll tell you about that tomorrow).

This morning I woke up and wasn't happy with what I saw.

A blue sky.

I felt like I was living out The Snowman when the little boy wakes up and the sun is shining in his eyes and he goes running out to see the snowman melted. I went running downstairs, camera in hand, still in my pjs to see if Mr Tree was still snow covered....
He wasn't.
The snow was melting off his red berries.

(And my snowman had gone but I feel this was less to do with melting and more to do with living next door to a nightclub - I feel the temptation was too great for some drunken revellers.)

lol I'm sorry the snow didn't stay on the tree - and that your poor snowman didn't make it through the night!!! We got some more snow last night, think I'll be off soon outside to investigate!

Oh how wonderful. Nothing like snow to make everything feel crisp, clean and bright....I mean feel...not just look! Grin. Oh what are you up to today?! What is your project? I shall check back later and see. Have a great day!

Gorgeous - especially the last picture. Enjoy it while it lasts! We've got near nothing here - just cold and ice! x

I think he flew off to the North Pole where he knew he would be safe. xxx
