Natural Abundance

This is what my neighborhood looked like the morning I was out, just after sunrise, shovelling the walk and laughing at the natural abundance exercises that ask us to find 5 interesting stones and 5 interesting leaves.

I realized just how much I miss the opportunities to enjoy natures abundance in small ways, like having coffee and writing my pages, sitting on the deck in the morning or coming home and enjoying the garden or falling into the hammock with a good read.

These days, I come home to a garden that looks like this--dark and snow-covered.

Natural abundance at this time of year consists of ice and snow. So, instead of stones, I offer icicles ...


... and instead of leaves, a snow covered pine.

I'm not fond of snow if I have to get to and from work in it, but it does look beautiful on pines - thanks for sharing that image with me! The icicles are pretty too.

Like you, I think, if I didn't have to DRIVE through it, I'd enjoy winter weather so much more.

There is a certain beauty in all of nature. Thanks for reminding me that I love my nature warm!

I know when I lived where it snowed, I just wanted to stay in the house and make soup or bake - bread, cakes, pies, cookies. Anything to help keep the house nice and warm.

My former-Malibu-resident daughter is really suffering, now that she's back home in this "frigid" Tennessee weather. She should count her blessings!

I love the icicles. I miss snow living in the South.
