This year again the saying: “Green Christmas – White Easter” was proved right. A thick blanket of wet snow on the garden surprised us in the early morning which we would have preferred to have seen at Christmas!


In the afternoon, my sister and I took a walk through the snowy woods. She cleared the way and took photos while I struggled in the deep snow. We were both enchanted by the calmness and quietness, the magnificent forest and the many deer which we encountered.


In the middle of the path on a large expanse of snow, we saw a splendid specimen of a worm!

Even the cleared circular path appeared less dreadful under the thick blanket of snow.

My concern was: This year, we could at least enjoy two days of this winter wonderland; in view of climate change, will our children and the next generation be able to experience a “winter” season?
