Where I live we get very less snow and our winter isn’t that cold most of the time. But when we are lucky we get a few real days of winter and my winter wonderland dreams come true.
I live in a lake region of Lower Saxony in Germany. The lake is a tourist attraction in summer and it can be very crowded, but when it’s outside the season we are just a very quiet little village on the countryside. And this winter days it’s the time to rest.
A few days ago it snowed and now it’s cold enough that it won’t melt the next day. I love snow. And it’s so pretty and everything is so quiet. I went outside for walks and a little hike the last days. Let me show you the winter wonderland of the Dümmer lake and the Stemweder Mountain.
The first day of snow fall was amazing. Me and a friend walked around the nearby swamp region and along the lake a bit. It was snowing the whole day and we were totaly wet when we arrived back home. But after that I had some hot chocolate with some fresh baked cookies. The best you can do after a long day outside in the cold.
The next day we drove to the not far away Stemweder Mountain. It’s more a lonely hill coverd all in a forest. And in the evening the clouds were gone and I could see the moon far away on the dark blue.
And the days now are sunny. Still cold and frosty but with blue sky and the sun shining. So pretty. When I went to the lake it was already frozen a little but you could barely see the other side because it was also a little foggy.
Also the sunset above the coutryside was so peaceful. It was just the time to rest a little and enjoy the cold outside and later the warm inside. Just happy to live at such a beautiful place.
But the weather got a lot colder so all the trees and plants where covered with ice and not just snow. But everything looked so pretty and the cold and clear air was just amazing. I went out just before the sunset and watched the last stars and the sky getting lighter.
On one of the last cold days in a row we went to the Dümmer lake again and many people where ice skating and ice sailing. Not that much of silence but still a nice time.
Where are you guys from and do you like the cold and white? If yes feel free to have a look at my winter wonderland collection.
Sending some love,
