The View From Here – After a Winter Storm

Dust of Snow

The way of a crow – shook down on me

The dust of snow – from a hemlock tree

Has given my heart – a change of mood

And saved some part – of a day I had rued. – Robert Frost

In spite of the (dire) storm warnings, the lethal ice that lurking beneath that “snowy mantle”, the closures and cancellations and being held hostage by my impassable driveway, it really is very beautiful out there…..  IMG_3083  This photo was sensibly taken from the warm side of the glass.  Somewhere under that snow drift is my cold-frame, and in that nicely insulated cold-frame kale, carrots and lettuce are growing…..

Nope!! We’re not coming out today!  Call again another day….

I think I’ll stay in too, for a little while anyway…

It’s not so bad.

Triumph

“The difference between try and triumph is a little umph

Not only does this surfer get “up” on his board, he does it on his head! As you can see, there was very little surf on this particular morning…..the other surfers are just floating around. I was impressed! Another small triumph here is that I had the presence of mind to catch get this shot. ;). Sun, waves, surfers……sigh.
I took this photo last February, on the beautiful island of Barbados.
