Much as we have had a few dumps of snow, only traces remain. This snow is scattered in little pockets of crystal jewels strewn through the garden, hugged amongst the chilled plants. Nests of tiny diamonds sparkle on knotty wood, are held fast in the fuzz of lamb’s ears, and sugar still green moss. Wee star gems highlight the copper of fallen cedar, and dot the evergreen foliage of rock cress. The birdbath is dusted in crystalline…it just takes a moment to notice the hidden beauty.
