Sunday Stroll: A White Quilt

Put on your warmest winter cap.

Let's take the trail through the herb garden,

where the roses are bending down,
to kiss the autumn goodbye.

 Let's walk up the hill to the front garden.

 Let us lay down near the sycamore tree
on this white quilt of snow,
and catch snowflakes on our tongues for a while.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you peace.

Steve has already been out and about photographing
where autumn lingers.

How delightful to walk around and see the snow covering everything and icicles hanging, so beautiful! :)

It is pretty, though so cold these last few days. We have a very different beauty than your Desert Colors. So glad you blog, so that I can see what life is like in a completely different climate!

Looks like that snow dusted everyone near the Great Lakes. We had a bit last night, but not enough to worry.My grandson(age 3) said he was mad at the snow because he couldn't make a snowman.I am waiting for 4 inches so I can ski with a conservation club.Your last stroll still had lovely flowers. I guess it is time to say hello winter, single digits here at night all week.

Steve, Yes. A town nearby got nearly 3 feet! We ended up with more like 6 or 8 inches. If I were 3, I'd be mad at the snow too. At the very least, you need to have enough to make a snow angel!

Enjoy your chilly week!
