A winter's tale

The glitter and gold of Christmas is slipping away.  I try to find comfort in winter's beauty.

The black lace of bare branches.

Humble pansies that hunker down in the cold.

Dried hydrangea petals that cling to the branches like faded beauty queens.

Foggy walks.


And sunny walks in parkas.

Frosty leaves.


And fluffy white tufted fruits.

Wild rose hips to brighten naked branches.




 And so many reasons to have a nice cup of tea.



Happy holidays and happy winter to one and all.

Those pansies are hardy! I do love walks, even in winter (as long as it's not freezing cold).
