The beauty of winter came to visit before the holiday with a few quiet blankets of snow in mid-December. All you need is a little bit of a dusting of snow to feel the magic.
A pine tree that sits in the back of the garden takes on a new role in the winter season with snow. What once sat in the background in summer and fall, is now transformed.
It doesn’t take much to change how it looks and dress it up for the season. The powdery snow is the decoration that nature adds to the tree.
Our contribution is some gold and crimson-colored ribbons as well as small, twinkling lights.
So simple. So peaceful.
Best wishes for 2018 and Peace on Earth.
