The First Snow ~ The Winter Fairy comes

First Snow – The Coming of the Winter Fairy

There had been, for the last few days, a crisp coldness to the air – sharp and tangy. the smooth pastel grey of the overhanging clouds, so close you can almost touch them.

I think snow is on the way and this means the arrival of the Winter Fairy.


She makes her entrance with no sound at all while all of us glory in the beginnings of the majestic beauty of quietly falling snow.


It makes no difference if you’re a child or an adult, there is something so magically beautiful, exciting and peaceful about watching the first snow flakes fall.


And then get thicker and larger falling in abundance all around, covering the landscape with fresh wintry snow.


It is a happy feeling.


So white, so beautiful, so heavenly – The first snow and the coming of the Winter Fairy.



Thank you for stopping by, hope your week is being a good one for you,

~ Penny

  2. Eve the romantic, love your drawing, this whole post reminded me of a book I read as a child (name sadly forgotten), I was enthralled by it and this post has brought back some happy memories, cue long and fruitless search for an unknown book.

  3. although it is very rare to snow here ,,, but i do feel the same thing when winter knocks. then why in films and movies they always point to sadness by the a winter scene … just wondered !!!
    very nice post Penny … thank you

      • Chilly but no snow yet. It’s a bit early. Our winter gets more “serious” around January & February. I’m not a great fan of snow… ever since I started growing my own plants [many years ago] and lost quite a few of them to frost. I must look like a mad person going out and speaking words of encouragement to the plants when it snows! ๐Ÿ˜†

        • I can imagine this (yes lol) But I’m sure it warms their little plant hearts. ๐Ÿ™‚ When I carefully clean leaves on indoor plants or when I water them I talk to them also! : ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Actually I wanted to post so this is the not quite finished product, had to add some more blue to her outfit but real life intruded (how rude lol) so will probably update with the finished one. But this is her in essence! Thanks Alice!

  4. A great drawing Penny. She is a woman so I don’t question her strength or her tenacity, although I’m not certain she can fly all the way to So. Cal. If it starts to snow here, I will have to admit I have underestimated her (hehe). ๐Ÿ™‚

    But – the Cccold — Brrr…
    I’d like to put in a request to the Winter Fairy to not rush things. Please hold for winter…pretty please… ๐Ÿ™‚
    xx ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

  7. I have always believed there was a winter fairy – now I know what she looks like… We have the rain fairy in Vancouver – and she was out today spreading her cheer. I call it liquid sunshine…

  8. OH PENNY this is breathtakingly beautiful! takes my breath just as that crisp clean air..we got a touch on Sunday and nothing since ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I so love the winter…wonder if that has anything to do with being born and raised in Colorado hmmmm a ponder. LOL Love ya friend xx (Hugs))

Thank you for your thoughts!
