This morning Leo's Rabbit woke up to a beautiful winter landscape. We haven't had that much snow in Leamington Spa for ages, certainly not in the Rabbit's lifetime. BBC News reported that an amber weather warning has been issued across large parts of the country. The deepest snowfall has been in Sennybridge, near Brecon in Wales, where up to 30cm (12in) of snow has been recorded. In the Midlands, roads and many motorways are covered in snow and although it will cause a lot of inconvenience for commuters and travellers, it's indisputably a beautiful landscape, especially if you are sitting at home by the fireplace eating a carrot cake and don't have to go anywhere. And that's exactly what Leo's Rabbit is doing this Sunday afternoon.
The world covered with a white, fluffy 'blanket' of fresh snow somehow appears more peaceful, calmer and more beautiful. When the Rabbit looks out of the window, it is as if he is looking at a beautiful painting. Everything is so different and magical. A typical grey, dark and unattractive winter day brightens up. Our Rabbit never have seen snow before, so he is fascinated by its enchanting effect on the world. After a short walk outside, he is sitting by the window and watching snowflakes gently fall from the sky. Let's all chill, slow down a bit and enjoy the change of scenery, like the Rabbit does :-)
Leo's Rabbit 'lives' in my handbag and he travels with us everywhere we go. He has pictures taken at various locations, tourist attractions and places we visit. As a part of this blog we will describe Leo's Rabbit Travels to share our personal experiences from these visits. Hopefully couple of people (apart from us :-) ) will find it interesting and may even feel encouraged to visit one of Rabbit's destinations.
