Winter On Its Way
Nothing like a little seasonable chill in the air and frost on the ground to get you mentally ready for winter. I'll admit, I was a bit shocked when the temperatures began to drop. At 71 degrees just the other day, I was beginning to think I was back in Florida...but now, alas, as it is nearly mid-November, having nightime temperatures below freezing should be quite acceptable! One thing it does do, is get me in the holiday spirit, thinking of that beautiful snow falling outside, clinging to tree branches and the mornings of waking up to hoarfrost...glorious! Clearly, it was time and so I found myself making the first piece for winter in the Season Cycles series. Hope your week is going well...enjoy!
