Snowy Hills

Hills shrouded in drifting snow, and the sound of the little river running down the gorge to the lake....

This is the day on which the gates of the Two Hundred Acre Wood swing open and remain so all winter. That permits our friends to keep the long steeply sloping laneway clear for us through the long white season, and their kind gesture allows us to visit our favorite place from now until springtime.

Open gateways...nice thought.

Good morning! Beautiful photo and thankfulness for an extended kindness. We need the kindness of others.

Your winter photos are gorgeous, and I love the image of the gates open.

I love the pictures of snow, given that we have to travel a few hours even just to see it. The thought of snow being part of one's everyday life is wonderful, even if a little romantic.

I think I see a new picture of Spencer as well. Handsome fellow!
