Silence and snow on Imbolc

What a lovely thing to happen on Imbolc. Within minutes of it starting everywhere was covered in a thick layer of snow. I decided to go for a walk in it and experience Imbolc in the gentle, enveloping silence of snow. Here are some pictures I took whilst on my ramble. Hope you all had a wonderful Imbolc.

Ah yes, I had heard of your snowfall from a fellow blogger who does gardening. Her wildlife sanctuary was covered in snow; garden benches looking forlorn.
Here in Canada we are deeply buried in snow. Won't see any snowdrops for quite a while yet.
Happy Imbolc

Thanks! I use any opportunity to take photos =D. It is quite bad, a foot deep at least and up to two in some places! Lots of fun though. I expect it will be more icey tomorrow. Thanks for your comment, much appreciated =).

I bet it was - it is very deep where I am. It's funny, our country can't seem to cope with snow - bet you're used to it! We won't be seeing any for a while either unless it melts! Imagine how wonderful it will be to see them though when you do!
Happy Imbolc to you too,

Thank you for taking me on this journey with you. Lovely photos. My, so soulful. Just moments before you posted on my site, I was standing outside my house moon gazing. It's a beautiful half-moon right now and do wonder what the significance of that is. Then I sat down at my desk and you were there. Perhaps you can tell me. Holy synchronicity, I call it.
Blessings to you.
I'll return...

Oh wow. The upshots of the trees backed by the dark sky are just beautiful!

I live in Southern California. And not on a mountain. We don't get snow down here. It's been a long time since I've seen any that was substantial.

Beautiful can really sense the quiet, especially in the last one. I miss the snow...

Beautiful photos! Thanks. Have not had any substantial snow here in Budapest for the three winters I have been here. And I have heard that there is snow in Glastonbury - something I did not see in the several winters I spent there.

Maybe later on this winter or perhaps next.

Love your blog, by the way

Glad you like them. Lol, synchronicity is not asleep then! I couldn't say what the significance is unfortunately, but I hope you find out! Thanks for returning ;), hope you continue to do so.

Thanks - I was really pleased with how they came out. I'll have a few more pics in my next post from the day after I took those ones. We've been quite lucky in my eyes to have a large amount of snow - everything looks so enchanting! It happens rather rarely here usually.

Yes, it was so quiet. Nobody was outside either, they were all snuggled up indoors, so it was just me, the snow and the moon =D. Made me feel very contemplative and meditative. Snow doesn't some along very often so I made sure I enjoyed it while it lasted!

Thankyou! I have not had the pleasure of seeing Glastonbury yet, although some friends are working hard to rectify that thankfully! How magical it must be in the snow . . . *thinks wistfully*. Still, Budapest must surely have its own charms, even snowless ;). I'm glad you like my blog. I think your blog was the first one I followed! Keep up the good blogging.
