Winter Season Is Here!

Of winter’s lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.

There is always beauty in bare branches, and when covered with snow and icicles, truly magic is there. Have a wonderful Christmas and all good wishes for your New Year.

Lovely-the words and the photo....have a lovely Christmas!!!When my husband and I can travel-we are definitely coming to your shop. Also-I have not forgotten Sadie's portrait-maybe you did (!) but I do want to paint it. When I get one done, I'm going to send you one. I plan to do more than one painting...

We are getting some winter weather here, finally. I appreciate your sentiments about the quiet farm life. Our oldest had wanted for several years to train for a career in politics. Something happened (thank goodness) and now he wants a life on a farm with his family. I am so grateful to the Lord for his change of heart! Your blogs are beautiful!

Beautiful picture and the words too. I've enjoyed looking at your last post, and love what you said in the first paragraph. Hope, for the new year. The Zinnias you grew are so pretty. I am hoping for a better gardening season next year. Have a Merry Christmas!

I like that little poem. The snow makes everything look magical ( until it starts to get all grungy, that is).
Happy New Year!!
