Gift #757: Snow Kisses

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

A lovely quote, don’t you agree?  I like to think that the snow is keeping the garden plants warm and tight during their winter sleep.  It will be a bitterly cold, windy night.  The wind has teased and tossed the snow around today, creating unique sculptures and flinging snow back on the roads which our crews worked so hard to plow.  While eating lunch overlooking the courtyard at work, I watched an enchanting ballet of snowflakes as the wind-swept snow off the roof and trapped it between buildings.  Snow billowed up in great whirling giddiness, dazzling in the sunlight.  It was a delight to watch.  Other snowflakes were content to huddle next to each other and crown the vegetation with snow crystals.

Blessings to you,
