Dear fellow bloggers. It is with great relief that I acknowledge that this recent snow has smitten me - once again. I've been proclaiming my alienation to winter and deep regret that I would return home to snow and cold. Funny what a little crystalline magic can wrought on a winter-weary heart. The garden angel isn't as thrilled as I as she pulls her ermine cape about her shoulders. The hat is rather smart too - don't you agree?
