Happy New Year! 2009! A year of new beginnings. New Year's Eve we had a snow fall and I captured these pictures from my back door. Signs of my Summer days on the courtyard now covered in Winter White. Sparkling; clean. Covered with a snow blanket from above. Now, I cannot tell a lie. I do not care for the cold Winter months and prefer Summer (ssshhhh). But, give me a camera as the snow falls, in my pjs, in my warm, cozy home with no place to go, and I will see all the beauty Winter has to offer me. Wishing you all a wonderful blessed New Year filled with everyday joys.
