Golden Light & Glistening Gardens on a Frosty Winter’s Morn…

Sunrise on the Frosty Tufts of Miscanthus sinensis

As a winter snow storm swirls about outside, my thoughts drift back to yesterday’s frosty morning, and the glistening, pink-gold sunrise. If today she reveals her wild fury, I am reminded that this tempestuous season more often shows us her beauty…

    June doesn’t hold a candle to a hoarfrost bejewelled sunrise and the dazzling glory she leaves behind: all the more precious for their incredibly delicate, terribly fragile, fleeting crystalline construction. Namaste.

    Hi Deb, it’s so lovely, isn’t it? Sometimes I forget to put on my socks and mittens. I just have to get out there as fast as I can! xo M
