Have a n-ice one!

A recent visit to the Botanical Gardens

In a cold snap

Was the icing on the cake (or dome of the greenhouse).

Icicles on dome

Disobeying the sign that says: Don’t walk on the grass

Is only something for people who don’t get cold feet.

(The snow was way beyond our knees.)

Don't walk on grass

The bare branches

Looked tree-mendous against the setting sun.

Meanwhile, inside the greenhouse-cafe,

The sun created a beautiful mosaic of gold.

And then it was outside for a family snap —

Yes, we were all playing n-icely

With our ice sabres.

Wishing you all a n-ice holiday!

  6. What a fun, beautiful family photo. Look at all that snow. My word. We were threatened with tornadoes all day, but only saw high winds and rain. Had the a/c on this morning and now it’s cold enough for a fire. What a weird day. Merry Christmas to you!!
