First real snowfall in over two years onTuesday. Continuing this morning. Silent and cold.
Suppose we did our work
like the snow, quietly, quietly.
Leaving nothing out.
— Wendell Berry, from his collection, Leavings, 2010
My reindeer topiary enjoying winter.
The Christmas wreath with all of its seasonal coloring.
Our black dragon evergreen stands tall in the snow.
An indoors chrysanthemum looks out on the new wintery scene.
A picture to remember next summer.
A Japanese snow lantern fully realized.
Happy sledding or just sitting quietly by the fireplace.
