Winters are blessed with snow. The landscape starts to transform into a winter wonderland with frost. Once the snow falls, the transformation gets completed. Everything looks pretty, covered in fresh white snow.
The pure snow has a spell of magic to it. Somehow it lifts even the lowest of spirits and brings about a feeling of joy. It spreads joy and felicity all around. The landscapes take a new look.
The cottages are blessed with snow every winter. No one can say when the snowfall will occur but every night when we tuck ourselves in our cozy beds, we just hope that the next morning will be a white one.
Snow is one of the two most awaited things in winters. The other being the early morning winter sun lighting up the snow-covered peaks.
All the tall oaks, deodars, pines and fruit trees get covered with snow that drips down as water droplets under the warmth of the sun. Snow is important for the fruit trees. A white winter means a bounty of fresh fruits in the following summers.
Simple objects like road-signs, rocks, fences, and even old wooden logs take a new look. A fresh coat of snow is all that is required to decorate even the simplest of objects. This marvelous new look excites even the most laid-back individuals.
After playing around in the snow, spending some quality time with family and friends in the cottages is what makes the season still more fun.
… and then once again back to the cottage, to enjoy the view from our snow-covered deck.
