I went to Painswick yesterday to eat carrot cake and to see the snowdrops at the Rococo gardens ~ failed on both counts but had a great time enjoying spectacular scenery in wonderful company. Painswick is quite high up in the Cotswolds so the snow is much deeper there and lasts far longer than down in the town. But we had a lovely time, so here for my friends are my impressions in picture and haiku. Apologies for the poor quality of the photos, I forgot my camera and had to use my phone! ~
Ice daggers dangle
from ancient lead gutters on
St Mary’s lych gate
Snow covered Yew trees
in picture perfect Painswick
Christmas card village
Sun sets on Painswick’s
honeyed stone cottages, and
cold Cotswold churchyard
White winter woodland,
following in the footprints
of the fallow deer

Not very good quality Karen as I forgot my camera and had to take them with my phone, but they capture the moment x
