Just like a fashionable person, Winter creates great lines and wears “winter white” and its accessories well.
I usually go out for the newspaper about 5:30 in the morning. On a Winter morning when there is snow on the ground, it is beautifully silent and almost cozy feeling. And there is something so fascinating about untouched snow, as on this walk to our front door.
In the Summer, I put red geraniums in this pot and its partner on the other side of the driveway. But in the Winter it’s always a challenge to keep them from looking drab. So I now put artificial evergreen wreaths on top of them with a little black filigree lantern in the middle. It’ll do, but it’ll never match the pretty geraniums.
In no time at all, we will be done with Winter. I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
