A very fitting goodbye 🙂
Perfect balance of snow
A beautiful shot with fitting words
this is lovely–thank you
Oh my, that is too true! It was so cold yesterday even the elves that hang out by trees were complaining it’s too cold and wished that they were birds who could fly south to warmer weather!

The colors are lovely: warm enough to recall autumn, faded enough to be perfect foils for the snow.
My mother who is passed on loved bittersweet..thank you for a happy memory today on this very cold grey day 🙂
On second look, this might not be bittersweet, but that is o.k. the memory is still sweet and the orangy color warming…: 🙂
I’m so glad it triggered a sweet memory for you.
I just love this photo, what a nice capture of both the berries and the snow! I would like to ask have you an idea of what this tree is? I have a similar tree growing next door and we are all wondering what it it? The berries are on it now since the summer, it’s wonderful!
It’s a flowering crabapple.
Thank you, we were not sure, it’s a beautiful tree!
I love the flowering crabapple – the profusion of blossoms in the spring and then the berries nearly all through winter – bringing all sorts of birds.
And I am happy to have finally identified the tree in next doors garden, which gives me so much pleasure. My neighbour wants to uproot it as it grows too close to his house, and would like me to take it, I’ve just decided that I will. 🙂
🙂 You will be glad you did!
Oh, boy, ain’t that right! 😉
You are so vey welcome
Hello cold is right. 🙂
We were down to the single digits last night.
Oh my, Catherine, that’s just brutal. We seldom ever get that cold here. Do stay warm. ❤
Great photo and poem!
Reblogged this on Voices and Visions.
Winter is still real pretty. Lovely words too.
Your photos are always so great.
Great photo of the snow kissed berry branches! Hugz Lisa and Bear
