Winter Blues

Winter Blues

The promise of spring hangs in the air. We had a tease of 50 degree Fahren­heit weather. The daf­fodils are send­ing up their leaves. The snow drops are in full bloom, even after being buried in 5 inches of snow. Once the snow melted, they were thank­fully still there, as beau­ti­ful as ever, as though noth­ing...

Win­ter has its beauty just like every other sea­son. There is noth­ing like the hushed silence hov­er­ing over freshly fallen snow sparkling in...
