“When the wind of winter blows over the uplands and moonlit spaces. Come ye out to the waste of snows to the glimmering fields and the silent places.” ~ Lucy Maud Montgomery
Good morning, dear friends. I hope this finds you well and that you have been enjoying the “silence places of winter.” It is truly hard to believe it is the last Sunday in January. Time certainly moves along and the days are precious.
This past week has brought snow to so many of us. We received about 8 inches(a total of 2 storms). When I looked out from the window, it looked like Mother Nature had dressed the garden in her finest white wool blanket. She also made certain to tuck all the corners and curves in perfectly. Everything looks so tidy. I believe the garden fairies dance at night.
Snow not only makes everything so beautiful, but it also makes our world seem much more peaceful. Perhaps the silence does that.
“Never are voices so beautiful as on a winter’s evening. . . ” ~ Virginia Woolf
“It’s time to draw the curtains, shut out the winter winds, rest up by a cheerful fireside, and dream of the coming spring.” ~ Freya Turrill
“In the winter, she curls up around a good book and dreams away the cold.” ~ Ben Aaronovitch
” It was a full moon and, shining on all the snow, it made everything almost as bright as day.” ~ C. S. Lewis
Dear friends, thank you so much for your visit. Know I wish you and yours a beautiful day.
And. . .
May the week ahead bring you love, joy and kind souls.
“The two things, love and snow, make the world look fresh again.” ~ Charles Finch
