Winter’s White

Till the summer comes again. Today, I signed up to receive seed catalogs and already, I have my eye on many little gems. I will watch my mailbox, waiting for them to arrive. It’s like planting a seed for summer to grow.

Today, we are covered with a quilt. The snow has kissed the trees, every limb is frozen and glistening beautifully in the sunlight. Winter’s White is pure and new. It’s time to rest as the trees and flowers will have hard work ahead of them.

For now, the appreciation for the season will be the warmth and comfort of cable knits and fleece, healthy food, and the darkness before spring’s light. See the beauty of the season.

Dream of spring with this beauty. It is great for art, cardmaking, and crafts. Right click on the image to save to your device. This image has been restored and background removed.

Wishing you and yours a beautiful start to the New Year.

The Beauty of Spring and a free Spring Print

DSC_0001 (2)

With the air crisp and cold it almost convinced me it was a January morning. Even though it is April, this was the view on Saturday. The trees frosted with a thin layer of snow, a fresh blanket of white on the ground and the spring birds singing. Usually, the lake is frozen and offers no reflection of the landscape on the water when the snow falls. The previous day was a balmy thirty eight degrees and just enough to melt the lake. This is the beauty of spring. The little surprises when you open the curtain in the morning. We have no green signs of life at the moment, the poor little dears are buried beneath the snow, but with the sun it still evokes magic. Nature, no matter what the season, still provides a serene stillness you can enjoy if dressed properly.

This morning, the view and temps were slightly different. It had dropped into the low teens over night. I don’t think the geese appreciated this fact as they were standing on the ice. Today, I could not get close. They flapped their wings in anger. I really could not blame them, they were freezing their tail feathers off. If you look close you can see their outline.

Since there are no signs of green and certainly no flowers, I thought a spring print would brighten the day. Click on image below to save to your device. This is for personal use only. This is a 4 x 6 print.
