on winter weather and the weekend past

HG | John Cullen


We went to Muskoka this past weekend.
It snowed big beautiful flakes for near two straight days.
Those ones that just seem to hover there.
The kind that remind you that winter
is still at least a little bit,




The kind
that make you
crave crackling fires and wool socks.
That make you think of homemade bread
and bowls of soup.




We saw wild turkeys,
and waterfalls that had turned to ice.
We walked on frozen lakes,
on snowy paths
saw fishing huts lined up in a long straight row.
It was nice.







The photos you see here are unrelated
but beautiful I think.
They’re from a day I spent with Martine & John
almost two years ago now.
Amazing how time passes.
xo, N

    I am taking a still life oil painting class and wondered if I could have permission to try painting your first photo here? I am an amateur (really.. really amateur) so there’s no worry re me reproducing or monetizing in any way:) xx
