The Joys of Winter

Though I don’t like being cold and winter can be dreary, there are many things I love about winter. There’s something cosy about winter that sends a warm (if you’re not freezing), fuzzy feeling about winter. Below are some of the things that I consider to be the joys of winter:

Fireside moments; I love sitting by a hot fire on a cold evening, while talking, reading or just staring thoughtfully into the dying flames...

Warm drinks; hot tea, coffee and yummy hot chocolate are perfect for winter.

Cozy reading; reading snuggled up in a blanket is bliss.

Watching movies in bed; all-time favourites watched under covers is the best way.

Winter wear; there is so much more one can wear in winter.

Winter colours; winter has a beauty of its own, even though it doesn’t snow here and everything is often dead. I photo-shopped the last one quite a bit. 

Frosty mornings; though cold, morning frosts are really pretty.

Wintery walks; I love to take walks in our veld and though in winter those walks are scarce because of the nippy wind, when it’s a bit cooler, winter walks are enjoyable. 

All photos, except the last one, were taken by Jess Leigh


Would love to have some colourful rain drops from you.... ;)
