WATERLOO IN WHITE



Since a few days it has snowed in Waterloo



and the Lion looking towards France has a white coat



Some 30 years ago, children went here with their sleighs on this historical place, which now of course is reserved for tourists who want to see the Waterloo battle field from the top of the Lion.



Napoleon is also freezing and looks at the also freezing tourists



The huge battle field is covered with snow



so is the entrance to our house

And when I look out of the window










my neighbors are stuck in the snow too !



But views are very beautiful !

Hi Gattina .. we've had about the same - it melted a little yesterday ... but I didn't go out.

Love the photos of Waterloo etc and your home bathed in snowy white ..

Cheers Hilary

The snow makes your photos look black and white, quite interesting. The leafless trees make interesting sky patterns. But it sure looks cold. We've been hearing about it on TV.

wow,lots of snow there!
You live in such a beuatiful place, the houses are gorgeous and I love your window view, I bet the kitties also love to watch birds by the window!
That "lion"is wonderful,you did a great work with your camera, well done!
I would like to say again, thanks so much for you always kind words, positive messages and emails. I'm doing okay, but I barelly go out home.You know...the snow, bad weather and so on...but this morning, I took some courage and prepared myself like one "Eskimo", and I walked for 30 min in direction of the city centre and also to by some bagettes.
:)
It's great to breath fresh air!
The sun is shy but I guess he's trying o show itself here! LOL
Love your post!
Hugs

It is beautiful, but yes, it also looks cold enough to even make the statue freeze!

These are beautiful winter shots. It's supposed to snow here tomorrow and I'm looking forward to it.
