Lovely winter scenery there! :)
By the way, I love winter but right now I don't miss the snow!

Bonjour again!
Re your comment,the exams finished last Monday,the result is good, but I'm a little bit perfectionists ( according what Cezar use to say! LOL )however I must study more and more.
I got a "promotion", a up-grade ;)
and now I'm starting a new book, advance one for my evening classes.
I will keep studying with the same book and the same group all mornings, I need to finish that book, maybe it will take more 4 or 5 months, then I intend to do another examination.In fact I can understand French, I can speak French normally but I still have to improve my orthography,it's not good. :(
And as "baby son"is still here enjoying his vacation from University, we have been going out together, visiting museums,expositions, cinema, shoppings, libraries and so on!
Thanks for your always kind comments and support!

"Dusting" of snow seems to be the right description here.

A little of fairy powder left by the Old Man, because he knows he will be soon going away..

I love that extravagance . . .(easy to say now that I'm away from it, mm?)

Yes, snow makes everything look a little more special. The turret (?) in the distance is tantalizing!

i'm pretty over winter now but it does make some pretty blue skies!! what is that little castle top in the distance?

Ah, winter, when more is always better! I can't decide if I prefer your "more"-- snow-- to our "more"-- rain. Yours is much prettier, for sure!

Beautiful!

Well yes, but when you want to eat a gingerbread house, you need a dusting of sugar.

Margaret said...

We got a 14 inch dusting in CT!

Jacob said...

I've done my share of dusting inside the house; sure am glad I don't have to dust outside the house...especially those tall trees and rooftops.

It is pretty, though.

Sounds like folks up your way have had to dust off their shovels recently!

A little sugar to go with the maple syrup.

Jack said...

In Connecticut, that "dusting" is crushing a few buildings. It does look a bit more delicate two hours up 91.

Elenka said...

.....there's that castle! Sweet.

Randy said...

But she does it so well. Except here, we need snow!
