Just enough

This morning we awoke to snow--
not much, but enough.

Enough to experience the stillness it brings when it blankets the world in a layer of soft, clean, cold, whiteness.

Enough to preserve the lifetime of one snowflake suspended from a spider's silken thread.

Enough to slow us all down long enough to appreciate the little things.

Tomorrow this gift will seem like a dream.

How wonderful that you were there to capture that snowflake, and that you could share it with us!

Your photos can only be more beautiful with your words.

I'm listening to soft Christmas Carols here at the office and the combination of your post and the music is so soothing....

Love the snowflake!

Great pictures, Nina. The suspended snowflake was totally amazing. How fortunate for you (and us!) that you were able to capture that image.

Snowflake is an ncredible photo. The Frost is also beautiful.
I adore snow as long as I can just putter about the house and gardens. I do not like driving in it! It is so very beautiful when it snows.

Of the megazillion snowflakes that descended near your home ,you have immortalized that star flake in a stunning--and unique-- photo that introduces the dancing Euonymous (?),red fruit, tufted with the whitness you describe so well.

That's a lot of snow! We don't get snow every year here so any snow is a lot :)
