Snow

Yesterday it snowed. By lunchtime the view from my bedroom window was this:

A snowy garden and houses

One thing that surprised me was how the houses, which usually look white, look such a dirty yellow at the moment. Colour’s all relative, I guess.

The birds looked hungry this morning:

Niall has since filled these so the wee birds that visit our garden can find a tasty feast. The blackbirds also love these berries:

It looks lovely at the moment, but it is also very cold.

    Because this time of the year in Melbourne, Australia, we often get relentless days in the 40s. Looking at your snow and berries photo I’m creating a fantasy image of crisp Winter whites and the romanticism of wintry films. It never snows here.
    Whites are never one white – are they? Always informed by what’s next to them. It makes me ponder on the eclectic pick and choosiness you mentioned in your previous post. The perception of the white will depend on your context and how it sits within your own picture.
