On the way back to the house even a simple clover flower looks unique with a hat of snow!
Water puddles are frozen into unique and beautiful designs
A lodge pole pine has its coat of snow to keep it warm. These trees are not natural to the area, but are extremely hardy.
When I reach the driveway I find rocks encrusted with ice. I love the crackling sound they make when I walk on them! Really takes you back to your childhood!
Even the yarrow looks stunning in its snowy blanket! Flowers in the winter, even dried out flowers from the fall are a real treat!
When you get done with a great walk it's always nice to go back inside a cozy house and start creating. I made these two bags for my daughter who is off at college. I really liked the way the oriental bag turned out.
When I'm not in the mood for sewing I pick up my watercolors and or color pencils and start to paint and draw. I don't look for perfection. I was looking for a oriental style with this bird. Walking and creating is all in a days work.....
