Gold leaf.




Empty nest.


“To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


All tucked in.


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, Through the Looking-Glass




If at first you don’t succeed…

December 11 (1 of 1).jpg

Our cats are only a few months old, and we keep them indoors. During this first weekend of wintry weather, they’ve been busy staring out the patio door and trying to attack individual snowflakes falling against the glass.

Their lack of success in this regard doesn’t seem to discourage them.

Well, perhaps they’re not geniuses, but at least they’re not quitters.
