After our “Halcyon Days” *
the cold front “Medea”
with frigid temperatures
Bergamot light bulbs
A fluffy seat
Lavender leaves barely breaking the ice
Frozen olive leaves
*Halcyon Days occur from December 15 to February 15 each year, and most often between January 16-31. During this time, the days are typically sunny, with clear skies and no wind, with high temperatures that can climb up to over 20ºC.

I had no idea Greece was such a winter wonderland! I’ll bet things were hopping at the Mt. Olympus Ski Lodge– and you have frozen orange juice on the trees in case the hot cocoa runs out– very thoughtful!! Hope you got Hera to take you and Mr. O. on a sleigh ride!! 👍 😊
Ah, it was this year, for a few days. We took lots of sleigh rides… on Mt. Olympus. The rest of the country is under quarantine 😡… sometimes it’s good to have connections with people in high places, like Zeus!!! 🤣😂
Speaking of whom… he sent you a fresh shipment of frozen ambrosia!
So it seems we are having a “Medea” time in Toronto.
I’m just happy Norm does the shovelling! LOL!
Well…. with an injured ankle, it’s unlikely you’d be doing the shovelling. A good side effect of a fall! 😉
I think most of the Northern hemisphere had some “Medea” past week!
xooxoxoxo What’s Hera up to…right now? xoxoxoxoxo
…sleeping! She’s very keen on that. It’s either that or attacking us with licks and hugs! 😉 🤣😂🐾🤣😘❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Wow! That must have been a surprise! Halcyon indeed 😉
Very pretty pictures, Marina.
Well, not Canada snow, but it was quite some snow and fast! 😉 A day more and I’m sure it would’ve been …Canada snow! 😉
Thank you, my sweet friend! xoxoxoxoxo
Hey, snow is snow and you guys got bombarded outside of the norm. Don’t forget, there are areas of Canada that don’t get much 😉
My pleasure xoxo
Bombarded is a good description! 😉
Looks like an abnormal amount of snow for you. Enjoy its beauty … and well done on your captures. 🙂 … stay safe. Yamas!
Thank you, my friend! Day two has even more snow! Hera loves it!
I just saw her. 🙂
Halcyon Days! Clear skies and open horizons to you!
Thank you, my friend! Well, those days are long gone and we’re under a white sky with lots of snow -as it seems- to give …still! 😉
Well, you made me look up the word halcyon. Enjoy the snow!
….you could’ve simply looked at the end of the post! 😉 😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣
Thank you, my friend!
You had snow too!!!! I love when serendipity allows us to experience the same weather across the miles. Fabulous photos!
Serendipity…. I love that! We’ve had lots of snow and today, even more!
Thank you, my dearest Rebecca! Many hugs!
Thank you. So much mutual winter inspiration among blogger friends!
Oh, yes! 🙏🤗❄️🤗🙏❤️
So pretty, Marina! It’s great fun that love of the snow can be contagious. Wonderful photos! The bergamot lights, the olive and lavendar dressed in white. Doggy may be clinging to the warm building during this time? .)
Hera, smart pup, dreams under her fluffy blanket! 😉 Thank you, my dear Mary Jo. Yes, it is contagious or better, inspired by your wonderful haikus! xoxo …and many hugs!
Super snow photos. It seems like all the northern hemisphere is getting snow.
Yes, so I hear! Our front is named after Medea [I wonder why! 😉 ] Thank you, my friend.
