Sonata Di Musim Salju...



The last of the snow has melted away leaving only the lump in front of the kitchen window that used to be our snowman. Walking past it this morning, I could see 5 or maybe 6 hardened and brown coloured limes scattered in front of it. Ahhhh. . . . there goes the eyes and buttons of the snowman :D I could also see the red chillies mouth and the 2 branches as the hands, hmmm. . . but where is the carrot nose??? Gone with the birds?? Can't be. . . ahhh . . . I know, must be the hare that had taken it!!!

I feel so sad really to see the snow gone, we have not had enough of it yet, we are not tired of it yet. Last year the snow kept coming until February or was it March? Anyway, we were sooo tired of it, we just wanted for spring to come early :D

These photos were taken on our way back home from school on 17th of December. Heavy snow had fallen through out the night before and was still falling as we walked to school. The sight of fresh snow on the ground and trees was so beautiful, words simply escapes me . . . .


Ducks and swan walkin on the frozen canal








 
My home for now....






Everything is just white and black.... I love it so much. Normally at home, I keep the inner curtains on for privacy, but during snow time, I like to draw it aside so I can enjoy the view of the white snow. And at night, it's so bright you don't need to switch on the outside light.

If it's not because of the splash of colour, one would think that its a black and white photos....

Our little snowman :D

 
And what happened to it the next morning :D


Thank you Allah for giving us the chance to enjoy this....

Hi iina !!

Simply beautiful... hmm.. kalau DSLR tentu lagi cantik he..he..

You know, I think it's the canal that makes it nice.. and it is not deep, that's why it's frozen in winter.. see the ducks and swan were walking on the canal :D

Salam R.I. Red,

Dear Cheqna,

Memang cantik masa tu, tapi nak ambik gambaq punya la susah, tangan menggeletar, dah tu ilham sibuk nak balik sbb dia dah kesejukan(kaki/tangan dia dah beku sbb seluar/glove basah main kat sek tadi).

Wish u were here, then we can both appreciate it :D Maybe u should come next winter??

Mother of Ilham,
We don't have snow in Sydney. I so resent that. Jealous! Hmmm....maybe should swap koala with tulips? purrrr....meow!

Nana said...

Love all the pictures! All nicely taken. No need DSLR pun takpe.;)
I have never seen frozen river so it is interesting to see the ducks walking on the ice...hehehe

I amsterdam said...

Dear Angie,

Want to be our neighbour? You'd better learn swimming... we have canals all over holland!!! har..har..har..

I amsterdam said...

Hi Nana!!

TQ, I do so love the pictures, ohh its canal dear not river, the dutch are very good at them. In winter, if the temp. kept below 0, the canals will be frozen and you will see children ice-skating on them. Isn't that wonderful?

Nana said...

Ooohh so it's a canal. hihi
It would be nice to see people ice skating on the ice. We don't get that experience here. Please do not forget to post about ice skating! ;)

I amsterdam said...

Will try to do that, Ilham pun x sabar nak try skating... :D
