Enchantment


7/365 Snow

Awakened to the start of a snowy day... a nice clean cover over the remains of the "The Holiday Storm"! The fresh snow cast a blanket so delicate it muffled the morning sounds of the neighborhood. A silence that allowed tender thoughts to rise, to open up to the world of beauty around us.

Enchantment can be found right in your own backyard.

This is what I woke to this morning...it must have drifted further north:) I am trying to get myself motivated to get out there with my camera!

Lovely words to match the photos. I also woke up to snow here in the city...but it will soon melt away.
