Pears and Tulips. Snow Covered Branches.

129twigandvine_single_pear Two nights ago R and I crawled into bed grumbling about snow and cold and wind. We’ve had our fair share of each lately. We love snow, usually. But winter was wearing us down.

How funny, then, to wake up to winter paradise the next morning. It’s like Mother Nature overheard us and decided to win us back. Well done, Mother Nature. I am in love with you again. At least until the next blustery night when the windows rattle and clumps of heavy snow fall intermittently from the roof.

Winter self preservation: a bouquet of tulips and a bowl of green pears. The last one asked to be photographed and I obliged.

    Ugh I feel you on the winter – everyday I think when is this going to end! So glad this morning was good near you. Right now it’s freezing cold as I sit outside in the car…

    As always, your pictures are gorgeous. The pear on the plate is so simple and pretty.

    We get snow so rarely here that it’s almost always a treat, at least at first. A very different story from having to cope with it for months, I know. It’s the almost unremitting greyness that spoils winter here. You splashes of pear and tulip colour are most welcome!
