Winter Vignettes

North India, as we all know, is freezing and fogged out. And if the experts are to be believed, then this changed trend of harsh winters is here to stay for at least the next 20-30 years.... Brrrrr!!! Not good news for folks like me who dislike winter anyway.

Winter makes me feel so dull, and foggy days makes everything look dreary. No impetus to do anything! Yet I forced myself to pick up my camera yesterday, and bring you some winter vignettes from around the house.

The sun has been gobbled up by the clouds and the fog.

Had this been the moon, it would've looked so romantic (remember the golden oldie Khoya Khoya Chand featuring Waheeda Rehman and Dev Anand), but the sun looks better when it is bright and cheery.

All our surroundings are enveloped in a blanket of grey.

This is the view from our balcony by day...

And by night...

Driving is such a nightmare in these conditions!

And this is what can be seen of the tree that was at least visible here.

Dewdrops form little beady necklaces on my plants everyday.

As I sit in my Tibetan woolly socks covering chilblained feet. Their colourful patterns are a welcome visual relief from the grey all around!

Hope you all are keeping yourselves toasty and warm this winter. Come back soon for more wintry updates from my home. After all, despite the big chill, a girl's gotta keep going.... :)
