We had a surprise waiting for us when we went outside this morning. Can you guess what it was? Why, yes…that’s right! Snow! How did you ever guess? :-)
The cold was a bit of a shock to our systems–after all, I was working outside in a sleeveless shirt two days ago. But the white dusting on the red maples was lovely and the paradox of snow on zinnias (the quintessential summer flower) was an unexpected delight.
And, curiously, the snow on the red yarrow had a festive, Christmas look about it. Kind of put me in the mood.
Anyway, I thought I’d share the sight with those of you who may not have been so lucky (or unlucky–however you look at it). Maybe it will put you in a holiday mood, too, and we can all close our eyes and dream…
Of peace on earth, good will to all, and the joy and delight of a white Christmas.
