Winter!

Winter is my favorite season, second only to autumn. And at last, it feels as if we're finally experiencing winter.

I have pictures from our home to illustrate...

And here is Virginia's enthusiastic response to the snow.

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape - the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn't show.

The snow always reminds me of a sugar frosting; there is something so quiet and peaceful about it. Your home is lovely ... and I assume Virginia is tired from the romping in the snow? LOL

In her honor, I offer this:

Canis Major

The great Overdog
That heavenly beast
With a star in one eye,
Gives a leap in the east.

He dances upright
All the way to the west
And never once drops
On his forefeet to rest.

I;m a poor underdog,
Bit tonight I will bark
With the great Overdog
That romps through the dark.

Ooooh, gorgeous! I love it. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Yes, Virginia did romp. She even cavorted. Then she shivered, and looked at me as if to say, "What are we thinking, being out here when it's warm and snuggly inside?" And then she took off for the front door, with me sliding along in her tracks. LOL!
