These are not lyrics we would expect to be written today, but it is of it's era and justifiably won an Oscar!
This came to mind simply because this morning (Monday) it was so cold! I had left half a cup of tea in my van and this morning it was frozen solid ~ I had to scrape all the windows, inside as well as out. Fortunately at the moment I'm working on building a new fence so the cold didn't impact on my work. It is winter and it is meant to be cold, in some ways I feel as though we haven't had enough cold the last few winters ~ I suspect that many of the pests and diseases that are impacting on our gardens now ~ fuchsia gall mite; box moth; kerrier blight and all the others seem to have been proliferated these last few years since we have had mild winters.
One of my favorite snow scenes, it's worth a good look!
