Enchanted . . .

In the early weeks of February —as skies begin to blush earlier each morning and light lingers longer in evening— winter takes on a certain softness. Traces of pink, peach, lavender and rose paint the horizon at dawn, and whispers of powder-grey fog stir the valley’s hush. Overnight snowfalls dust the forest with a fresh a coat of sparkling white, creating a magical scene by daybreak. Enchanted.

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful pictures! Although, I am about done with Winter. Looking so forward to Spring! Aren’t you? Namaste

  • Amy Campion says:

    Really dreamy. I like the frost on the window the best. I grabbed the camera after our snow and ice storms last weekend, too. A chance for great photo ops!

  • Deb Weyrich-Cody says:

    Oh my! It’s almost like living on (a wintery) Mount Olympus, isn’t it?

    Hello Deb, Indeed. I joke that I am living under the spell of Narnia. Such a beautiful season …Loving all the beautiful bones!

  • Michaela says:

    Thank you, Amy. These are mostly iPhone4 photos —including that frosty window there— grabbed on the run. I agree! Impossible to go even a day without recording the beauty of the season. Enjoy! xx

  • Michaela says:

    Hi Karen, I confess that I have an unabashed love for winter. Perhaps this is because I love snowshoeing, tobogganing, skiing, and well, you get the idea. Also, I work so many hours, spring-fall, that I enjoy the rest and quiet of studio time. I think it’s unusual for a gardener to love winter as much as I do. But, that said, I can not deny that I am indeed enchanted by, and ever-always looking forward to spring! xx M
