Scenes from a Winter

Posted by on December 10, 2013

The last couple of winters have been kinda a bust. Either not enough snow or to harsh a fall, leaving landmines of icicles and bitter temps.

Not today. It started falling during the night, but not enough to cause school delays except at the elementary level. It tapered off after a few inches came down, and the roads are mostly clear. If you don’t have to go anywhere today, the effect is magical.

The backyard grove, flurry-dusted.

Closer to the house, the insulators mounted on stakes to define the garden beds are wearing jaunty caps.

The hummingbird feeder stands empty, however.

A moment to savor, then it’s another cup of coffee and back to the work in progress.

    And now it’s starting to melt away. Just a bit. The roads and sidewalks are clear.

    The bits of bright color are very effective – I’ve seen that done deliberately in advertising: the yellow birdhouse, blue pole, bit of red? in the top picture.

    From my window I see snow – and the red berries on the bush. Time to photograph. Thanks for the reminder that it is ephemeral – the cars will come by, there will be footprints going out to the mailbox.

    But for right now, black tree trunks, white snow, and the occasional touch of color.

Tell me what you think! I love to chat.
