~ raindrops on roses ~

It feels like its been raining forever.
The garden is sighing with relief.
We've been inside watching the fire, snuggling, reading, drinking soup, playing games, baking more cake.
We duck outside for firewood (or to play hockey in the sleet).
There was a break in the mist and the rain today.
I slipped outside in the silvery afternoon light looking for some raindrops on roses.
I was not disappointed.

What are your favourite things about winter?
