Snow, ice and cold weather!

Yet more snow, in a few hours we were snowed in and cut off from the world again...hooray!

As you can see the dogs still want to be outside playing and luckily for Willow, her thick coat means she is totally ignorant to how cold snow actually is!

Zac on the other hand prefers to stay a little dryer, but he's such a pretty boy, it would be a shame if he got too messy!

What a poser he is!

And then he investigates the igloos made by the bamboo bent over with snow, he found a network of these tunnels, we do have quite a few bamboo areas, I really think it's more like a plantation and he had hours of fun mooching about underneath them all!

And just a bit of info, this is the bottom of our garden, we are one step away from the wood, if you follow the little path down it leads to places such as Dancing Green, Kettle Bottom, Hoovers Lane, Watery Lane and Hope Mansell to name but a few of the quirky places we live near!

I've sorted out a new piece of wildlife art to start but I'm holding out for the cat photos to arrive before I get stuck in!

If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower. If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition.

Om my Karie-Ann. It does look bleak and so cold. The dogs are having fun though.
I guess the Hooray means more time to draw. Enjoy.
Thanks for sharing the great pics.

Stay cosy and warm .

Seems strange to read how cold white and beautiful it is where you live when over here in Australia it is hot humid and i have just been swimming.
