Let It Snow – As Long As You Have A Good Book


Thankfully we are on the edge of terrible weather, able to stay inside warm and dry. There is a white world visible through the windows, branches dipped in ice, weighed down and oddly shape. The bones of the garden are highlighted, and I worry about the Camillias incased in crystal. I found this wonderful illustration that captures the possibilities of the day regardless of  weather conditions. Add to this a Youtube song and my prayers for safety for you.

    Hope your camellia is ok tucked under the ice Stepheny! I spent the day reading and watching the birds at the feeder.

    Fireplace, book, tea. Two days worth. The joy of the weekend was four little neighbor girls who cleared the walk and driveway.

    Hi, Stepheny – I love snow and I miss it now that my hubby and I are in SC, but I’ve seen the pictures of this snow and have to admit, it’s quite a lot. 🙂
