For a ride in the snow!

While mum was safely in the warm, a couple of the boy's decided to venture outside, fed up
with waiting for Mum to take them !

Baby George had seen them just as they were about to leave the house , when they said it was too cold and he could not come with them, he'd taken a big breath ready to start yelling , so the boy's had quickly changed their minds... grabbed the sled and made sure he was wrapped up warm, then headed out.

It's still snowing but the boy's are loving the cold crisp air and the deep snow, they pull George around the garden for a while then stop to watch the wild bird's feeding, keeping really still..until George starts  giggling and trying to touch the snow!

 "Come on " says Duncan " we'd best head back, we forgot to put gloves on George and his hands are getting cold.
" I'm going to check on Drago " says Ben, so Duncan and George head back to the house.

 Once the other's are out of sight Ben throws himself backward's into the snow, like he's seen the American children do on TV and waves his arms about to make a snow angel.

 The snow is falling on him but he does not care so full of joy at playing in the snow! A short time later he gets up and heads off deeper into the garden.

 He find's Drago deep in the snow which a pile of snow on his head!

" Oh No Drago! " cries Ben rushing to his side " You must be frozen! Quick come back to the house and sit by the fire you'll soon warm up! "

 Drago who'd been sleeping until Ben started yelling in his ear, starts awake " What ! " he listens to Ben's worried word's
" Ock laddie dinna fret so, this wee drop of snow is nay anything to be worrying ya self aboot ! It reminds me of ma home in the highlands! I was standing here waiting ta see if It wa reach ma chest!"
Ben is amazed that the little dragon thinks it's not deep enough!
Drago sees Ben start to shiver " Away with ya Laddie back ta the hoose! get a wee dram inside ya to ward off a chill "
 Ben decides to head home , he is beginning to feel a bit cold, going back he thinks he can hear the dragon singing.......

" Ya tak the high rood ....and I'll tak the Low rood..... and I'll be in Scotland .....afore ye"
Shaking his head and smiling he runs home.


  1. How beautiful your garden looks in the snow. Now I'm feeling even more guilty at not having ventured out and taken some photos as yours here are really attractive and look such fun.

    Love the Scottish conversation bit and most impressed with Ben's concern for Drago.

    All the three lads look well dressed to keep them warm and cosy in this somewhat severe cold snap. (I'm thinking that this was the real reason that I haven't ventured out myself as normally when the snow finally falls it automatically becomes warmer....but not so this time.)

    Sasha love and thanks for yet another most enjoyable post. What would I do without your blog! Makes my days with it's Sasha fix! From Kendal.

  2. Thank you for taking time to comment Kendal.

    This cold snap as you say as been very cold and not really warmed up when it's snowed which is why it's taken me so long to get out to take photo's.

    I do like the garden in the snow, it looks so
    but I am looking forward to the snow going.
    Sasha love Dee

  3. Wonderful post! I like the way the boys ended up taking Baby George with them to shut him up!!
    I am so glad it is starting to thaw here as well, if it could just get a little warmer then that would be bliss!

    1. Yes those boy's know George has powerful lungs!

      I cannot wait for it to thaw!

  4. Dee I really LOVE your photos, they are just gorgeous of the kids in the snow. It was great that the boys took baby George out with them....even if it was only to shut him up! They all look so nice and cosy warm. It is so fortunate that we don't have snow because my poor kids don't even own coats, never mind ones as super as these!
    Big hugs Sharon xx

    1. I love the change in the season's and would miss not having to dress them in coats etc.

      However I do not love the snow if it's still around after a day!
