lucky you...no apples here this year, no snow anytime soon. I think it stinks. at my end.
it's just not right somehow.
pity party done. (<:

there were only a few, nancy, and i was surprised to find this one left behind. the snow isn't very deep, though it snowed all day long.

Oh, it looks so winter wonderland-y and here we are celebrating buds and bulbs and blossoms. I'm sure Wendy wishes it would go on forever!

jean, wendy loves the snow for sure.

my other comment disappeared...but it went like this...nature's ornaments..snowglobes in the palm of your hand. mum's puppy walked around with a white beard whenever we ventured out...a hound (beagle) with her nose to the ground and every time she looked up - white faces...wendy's happy days...we got our first snow today, 1.7" - hiho to wendy.

henrietta, sorry, i've been having trouble leaving comments elsewhere. i re-enabled the horrid secret agent code because i got so much SPAM.

Beautiful red-ness! Today we were gray...even and flat like a sheet of tissue paper. Damp & rainy now (evening)

nancy, it snowed all day long, delightful!

BEAUTIFUL--Still waiting here in hot NYC...I'm going to get back to MA the week of the 12th...I can not bear the concrete much longer....my longing is palpable as a hunger.

i can't imagine living in nyc. i haven't been there since i was 7. and then it was crazy huge in every sense!

Nice to have a sense of winter... are those red osier dogwood creating that red in the last image? Dreaming of snow.. not ONE snowshoe yet this winter!! ( though there were a few days possible)

valerie, close, the hard and harsh canes of wild raspberries. you had the creeping crud, too. my two times skiing really made me want more, then i got sick.

the red is a heartbeat in the middle of the frozen world. I'm still thinking of your last post & wanted to share this amazing piece I saw years ago, by a local artist.

hs, i took a look at the piece, and i found it more disturbing that the actual animal. now i want to think about why.

V- love the simplicity of the single weather worn apple - out of focus with the snow it is mysterious. B

Persistence and tenacity - almost waiting to be found and enjoyed by your eyes. Special.
