Oh that winter light!

There is a narrow, hidden path that comes out

Next to a gorgeous lakeside house.

As you emerge from the path,

You might find yourself bathed in honeyed light on a clear winter’s day.

Light 1.jpg

The light pours golden and warm

Over the hibernating bees — reminding us that

There are sweet things just around the corner.

    I love all your posts, this one is special. You have no idea how I love the words “narrow, hidden path” affect me and then such great magical photos. The scene reminds of frozen, snowy Idaho here in the USA where my mother comes from. The snow was always magical. Have a great day!!
