After several days of gloomy skies, the sun graced us yesterday. Its loveliness was so welcome, I decided to head out to the back yard and enjoy the crunch under my boots and the sparkliness of the snow.
I love it that God gave us evergreens. They're so reliably happy when all other color has faded.
And this guy has kept his color fairly well too…
The sky was a gorgeous blue!
And I wish you could have seen all the glimmer on the snow…
I'm very excited for this mulberry to come back to life. This year, I vow to get to the fruit before the birds do!
As I looked around the winter landscape, imagining birdsong and harpists, I was thankful for ——- wait a sec.
Still staring, suddenly speechless.
(If there were any crickets around these frozen parts, they'd be chirping.)
The birdsong stopped, the harpists left my head, and cold reality settled over me.
I crunched my way back inside the house, and this guy chose to stay outside enjoying the day's loveliness.
