My terribly talented husband Peter took these stills this morning. It was -5 and FREEZING but so terribly pretty! This might be a good time for him to remind me that I didn’t want to move to Los Angeles when he suggested it a few years back but LA doesn’t have magical forests covered in dusty snow and frozen hose pipes right?
I adore the spider’s web (despite a small tendancy towards arachnophobia (see snow makes everything OK) and I could sit and stare at the trees sprayed with what looks like icing sugar. As long as I’m by the fire inside and have a window view to the snowy world, I actually enjoy this weather. It’s calming. Of course, pregnant or with kids, fighting this weather is anything but.
My boys were both born in bad weather conditions and I remember being heavily pregnant with my first son, Oliver as the snow came down thick and fast. London was transformed. I would wear grips on my shoes and lived in wellies. Do enjoy the beauty the snow brings but please becareful too.
