Winter Has Come !

It has been raining in the last 24 hours and the south of Romania is now covered in snow.
This is the old house across the street- I see it every day when I walk by and I have always loved it. This is what it looks like today:

This is another splendour - a corner house representative for the late 19th century architecture. Unfortunately, just like the one across my house it should be carfully renovated...

Well,  these are some old oak trees .
I wonder how many generations of children have walked by it , just like I did it as a young little girl.

Finally, a perfect proof of the saying: " The way to hell is paved with good intentions'. The peole who bought this house wanted to fix it and make it a " modern" thing.... How horrible this one looks painted in lime and without its original plaster moulding , you can see from the picture below.
