Snow Gypsies

Quarry in the snow panoramic by Addison

 

Last Friday night we got a late start in leaving town. I hoped the roads weren’t icy where we were headed. They weren’t, and we made good time along the journey. We entered enchanted landscape driving the country roads. Luna was dressed in her full gown with her celestial bridesmaids in tow…their golden auras gleamed upon a pristine vista of snow. The velvet night was as light as day. We became silent witnesses to this sacred night. Sorry, no photos of the night. Here are a few my son had taken earlier in the day of our destination…home; the place I grew up.

This little old snow gypsy had shown her face about a year ago. She returned this winter and has claimed this land as home for now. She is fed several times a day and roams as she pleases, so I think she’s happy. I’m sure she’s ready for spring. As beautiful as this snow was, I’m ready for spring as well.

    • It was given to a neighbor (and by a neighbor I mean someone a few miles down the road) and apparently didn’t like it’s new home. They kept finding it across the mountain or at someone else’s property. They couldn’t get it to go with them most times or stay once it was home. My son has adopted it. He goes up the mountain to the old homestead three times a day to feed it. About a week ago it left for a few days. What we noticed was the horse had followed my son’s tracks through the snow (He’d been running through the mountains…crazy exercise!). Anyway, wherever my son’s tracks were there was a set from the horse along side. We guess he had been looking for him. But she’s safe and happy now.

  1. The picture of the wild horse is just lovely and “Luna was dressed in her full gown with her celestial bridesmaids in tow” brings into focus the sight you saw beautifully. Thank you

    • It was absolutely beautiful. By Sunday it had melted and everything was either a mess of mud or puddles as big as ponds. The beauty was worth the mess this time. 🙂

  2. Suzi, I love the way you framed these photographs because they almost look like panoramic views! LOVE that first one! And the last one of the snow gypsy is absolutely stunning! What a gorgeous horse!

    “Luna was dressed in her full gown with her celestial bridesmaids in tow…their golden auras gleamed upon a pristine vista of snow. The velvet night was as light as day.”

    So beautifully expressed!

    Thanks so much for sharing your weekend, my friend!

  3. What a beautiful little horse — and the snow scenes, too, are breath-taking! Although, yes, I’m so ready for Spring. I’ve seen the daffodils peeking through the earth and tiny buds on many of the trees, so it’s on its way. Now, if we can just avoid one of those early-Spring ice/snow storms! Hope you had a lovely visit, Suzi!

  4. I think your title, Snow Gypsies, is perfect! You described the night in such wonderful detail. No photos were necessary! But the little gypsy is adorable. And I’m with you….I’m done with winter now. 🙂
