Squirrel in the Snow

with familiar realities transformed

into landscapes of unwelcoming frigidity,

harmonize like a squirrel in the snow, drawing

on autumnal bounties and memories of summers past,

for soon icicles will melt away, freeing frozen

dreams in Spring’s long awaited thaw

Squirrel alone in the snow

These photos were taken at Hartsholme Park during the other week’s snow. I’d intended to post them (and others as well) before now. Unfortunately, I’ve simply not had time to work on posts.

Some of you may recall that I posted pictures of our newly decorated living room a few weeks ago. Well, a day or so later we got a phone call from the housing agency we rent through, who told us that our landlord has decided to sell. We’ve now found a new house, but it’s smaller than the one we’ve been in. This means we’ve had to sort through all of our belongings and decide what we’re actually taking with us. Because we pooled things from both my sister’s house and my flat when we moved in a year ago, we have double of pretty much everything. Sorting through it all isn’t a quick or easy task!

We should be in our new a place within the next few weeks. It’s in a village on the outskirts of Lincoln, which is much more to my taste than the house in the city we’ve just had. I’m looking forward to finding some new places to photograph.

  1. Cute squirrel!
    Oh my on having to move just when you finished painting! Will you keep that color scheme for the new place ? ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am glad that you will like the area better. Good luck as you sort through stuff and pack. I know that’s hard work.

    1. Unfortunately, we don’t think the new place will take such a large amount of colour. The rooms are much smaller, and it’s the size of the current living room that stops it from becoming too much. We think we’re probably going for more natural tones, though we don’t actually think we’ll need to do much in the way of decorating at all. It’s all very clean and fresh. The garden will probably be our main project, as it’s currently empty of plants!
      Thanks for visiting, Joy. I’m glad you like the squirrel. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I love the little squirrel…love the simple title too. Moving…a drag but filled with all new possibilities. ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Aw, what a cute little squirrel ๐Ÿ™‚
    I think a place more out in the country will suit you better. Not so far to go for your wildlife photos.

    1. I just found this comment back in my notifications. Sorry for not replying sooner, Ali. We’ve now moved to our new house and I’ve had a number of wanders around the village. It’s nice.๐Ÿ˜ Much better for photography than where we were before. I’ll try to get back to regular blogging soon, though I’m still working on getting our new website up and running. Unfortunately all of that had to be put on hold for the house move, as well.
