The heart of the snow

This is a snowy post —

(Sorry about the pun),

Posts.jpg

Where splashes of red and white

Look like Santa’s hat;

Red+snow.jpg

And snug houses

Are framed by snowy branches.

And, if you’re lucky,

You might find the heart of winter.

  79. I’m very late commenting this week, Fiona, for which I apologize. Soon you’ll have next week’s post up. I hope you didn’t mind me posting twice this week. It’s probably a bad habit.
    Meanwhile, I love your pun, and, like Lisa, it took a while for it to come to me. Good stuff! As your photos are, too, as always!
    I haven’t been out to photograph the snow this year. Lindy goes out when she must, and sometimes she stays out a while, but then she wants to come in, have the snow brushed off, and removed from between her toes.
    Once again, your red and snow photos are lovely.
