Snow!

When it snows around these parts, we get excited.

Today, the landscape has changed.

The ground is fallow, winter exposes the bones of the garden.

But today the snow covers everything like a costume-- it all looks a little different today.

<--My friend in the shade garden, to the left, has a snow fro.





 
The gargoyles are shivering. None too happy with the cold. 
Waiting for spring.


. . .the cold of winter produces ice-flowers on the window-panes, which vanish with the warmth. Soren Kierkegaard 



 The good thing about fallow ground is that it's preparing for growth. I think the creative cycle is like that...you need fallow time.

  3. Yes, even as a southerner, I find it hard to accept his stout Christianity. Mine is of the wavering kind. (-: But maybe that's why he interests me.
