Winter Wonderland: a Walk In the Russian Countryside
I love winter. I know, I know - it's cold, it's mostly dark, it's the season for bad weather and bad traffic. But I still love winter, especially beautiful sunny days in February. You see, that's when you can feel that spring is not far. You may say: "What are you talking about? Look at all that snow!". Well, true. Real spring won't come to Russia until April. But even now when the sun comes out all living things can feel that spring is just around the corner. The birds are chirping like mad, squirrels run around in a very spring-like manner and my cat Molly goes bonkers and starts darting around my snowy garden with her tail held high.
A could of days ago we had a huge snowfall. We had about a month's worth of snow fall in one day. It caused havoc on the roads but it also made everything look so unrealistically beautiful. A true winter wonderland. Enjoy the photos!
