Cherries in the Snow
Did I mention I love snow? It was coming down steadily all day Sunday, and I couldn't resist going out for a little promenade in the swirling flurries of snowflakes. There's just something so, so fun about crunching through freshly fallen, powdery snow. It was cold though - colder than the previous day - and I can tell you I was glad of my layers of cashmere and wool.
We wandered to one of the two nearby Victorian cemeteries, which was so wonderfully serene covered in a soft, sparkling layer of white. We strolled around a while, enjoying the peaceful stillness of the place and the quiet beauty of carved Victorian memorials under the still-falling snow.

Sadly the snow has all since melted, but fingers crossed it might snow again before the winter is over - snowy outfit posts are fun!
