Winter Scenes

“He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter…In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity.”  ~John Burroughs

Way up north on the prairie, Northern Illinois.  Miss Sadie wanders down an icy, snowy road.  Due to freezing paws, she will have to be carried home…

A Winter Field.

A collection of found glass, pottery & china pieces sparkle with a snowy backdrop.

A barren winter beach {and an excellent driftwood specimen for later crafting}

Miss Sadie…once a shelter orphan, and now the Ice Queen of Barren River Lake.

Mother Nature: Ice Sculptor.

An immense flock of migrating Sandhill cranes finding respite in a rolling field.

A magical woodland portal.

“Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth.” ~Hugh Macmillan
