How serene those images are. Reminds me of my cherished cross country ski jaunts in Vermont.

Wow! Patricia, please crawl out of my head! (No? Okay, you can stay in there. I rather enjoy your company.) I had those bookmarked to purchase this week from etsy. Specifically the one of the orchard, which I can get lost in for hours.

Jennifer is a great photographer.

I love those images. They conjure up simplicity and peacefulness. My Grandmother use to say "when the trees undress, we dress."
We are on the same wavelength with regard to winter and the feelings it evokes.
Happy Weekend!

beautiful photos! Since all I want to do when it's cold and gray outside is sleep I think I will be doing lots of dreaming this month.

Monkey Grass Hill is turning is almost 1 year old this week. I'm doing a giveaway to celebrate, pop on over.

My last post "big dreams" was about the new year's resolutions I forgot to make - winter with its long nights and cold mornings makes it hard to get out of bed - it's a time to let the dreams go on...

Kwana said...

Thank you for this. What a beautiful way to look at January, as opposed to grey and drab :-). Xoxo

I like trees, they give me the feel of peace and strength. xo

Just Martha said...

It looks so quite and peaceful. Is snow like that?Life continuing in hushed whispers?... Having floods here at the moment so amid the sludge and mud alas, no peace here... A white Christmas is on my 5 year plan...

PVE,

That's how I've always drawn trees since I was little. Even when I was completing my landscape design classes I always used winter trees. There so romantic love the snaps!

January had always been one of my favorite months. I shall always think of it as "vanilla dream" from now on.

I was just admiring the contrast of all our of brown tree trunks against the white snow today. There is something so beautiful and serene about our landscape right now. Something to keep in mind when the 4th snow day rolls around. ; )
