Here today gone tomorrow – London, February 2008

After the heaviest snowfall in London in decades, I ventured out the next morning to find a picture-perfect world covered in smow and icicles.  This one in particular caught my eye for its intricate, delicate laciness – and the transience of its beauty.

The name of the photo is particularly apt this week as that's exactly what I will be – gone tomorrow for a week's skiing in the French Alps.  Woo hoo!!  In a chalet with a hot tub!  Double woo hoo!!  With no internet access. Eeek!  Normal service (and commenting on all your lovely blogs!) will resume when I return.

This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister.

Oh this made travel back in time to when I lived in Sweden and springtime there! The wonderful feeling of reawakening and joy when spring finally arrived!

Jeanne, hope you are enjoying it. Your icicle looks like Africa. Boiling in the heat here, but will be home (my other home) in the big chill soon.

Hello dear Jeanne,
Wow, I’m almost jealous despite the fact that London’s record snow fall probably still doesn’t compare to what we get over the winter here in good old Toronto. I spent time living in both Bristol and London many moons ago and would have punched a granny to get that much snow. It never once snowed in the time I was in Londontown at all. It must be magical! Turning a city usually so hard and bleak in winter into a soft and happy wonderland for a bit. I bet people were smiling at each other on the streets a bit, non? How unLondon it must have been. Wish I could have seen it. Enjoy! Hope your skiing is marvelous.

Hope you’ve had a wonderful time. We went a week earlier and the snow conditions were excellent in the French part of the Swiss alps. How was your holiday?
