The Cloak of Winter

Every gardener knows that under the cloak of winter lies a miracle... a seed waiting to sprout, a bulb opening to the light,
and a bud straining to unfurl.
And the anticipation nurtures our dreams. ~ Barbara Winkler

What beautiful photos! We are getting a little sleet here in Georgia right now but nothing so beautiful as all that!

Beautiful pics - we've looked like that twice this winter. In the midst of it were 3 branches of red sumac berries - indeed the promise.

Wow~ Just look at that ice. We haven't had ice like that in a very long time. I can definitely be destructive. Take care and keep warm and yes, underneath are miracles.

Lovely! But, inconvenient for those who have to live in this weather. Hmmm... makes you want to go someplace tropical, doesn't it?!?
