I just had to share with you the amazing images my mother sent through to me of their house in Connecticut - I know everyone back on the East Coast (of the US) is pretty darn sick of the plethora of snow storms that have been rolling through this year but for those of us on this side of the Atlantic - where traffic grinds to a halt with a millimeter of snow on the ground.....just thought you should all see what it's like over there.
These are shots from outside my old childhood bedroom window - long icicles descending down from the gutters outside.
This the view of of my brother's childhood bedroom - look how deep it is. This is just after the latest storm so the driveway hasn't even been plowed yet.
This is from their sitting room window - out onto the outdoor seating area/picnic table where we have all our meals in the summer - you almost can't see the chairs.
Here's their cat Rumble - sitting under the bird feeder in the back of the house - a special path had to be dug to the feeder just to get seed onto it.
Some lovely shots in my old bedroom in a bright wintry light - this is on the mantelpiece.
On the left, my old Steiff bear - now some 40 plus years old with a younger bunny friend.
And finally Mr. Rumble - cosy inside on the radiator.
Thanks to my mum - Jilly Walsh of Jilly's Jubilee - for providing me with these wonderful images. Part of me wishes I was there yet part of me is glad that spring is almost on it's way here in Ireland.
