  1. I’ve never lived in a place with winter snow. The few years spent in Northern Germany, we had cold, but just once or twice with any white stuff on the ground, and it didn’t last. Your photo and poem are beautiful – and seem quite accurate! ~SueBee


  2. What a gift, to open up your blog for the first time and see such an image. This reminds of a few different areas up in the Rocky Mountain National Park. I’m embarrassed that I haven’t been up there for winter in a while. Maybe this is the inspiration I needed. Thanks for visiting Other Side of the Trees. Hope you stop by again.
