A Walk In Winter

In spring and summer and fall I don't have to look for beauty.  It surrounds me!  New life, greens and pinks and whites and reds and blues.  My winter view is totally different and I love it.  There are open skies because the trees have lost their leaves.  There is a nip to the air that makes me appreciate my warm and cozy house.  I don't take things for granted in the winter, and that makes me more aware of each day.

A walk in winter is a gift.  Often I am cold and the wind is blowing and things look a bit dreary.  The next day the sun shines through the branches and I notice the dried petals of the Oak Leaf Hydrangea.  If she can stand it outside then certainly I can.

"Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart.  She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger.  She calls her
family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth." - Hugh Macmillan


  1. Another insightful and beautiful piece in this series! Your embellishments are perfect the button is especially an eye catcher. Are the other two on paper?

  2. No walking in the cold for ME!! Heck, no walking for me at all right now, LOL. You don't often work in these colors and it certainly captures the mood of the season.
