The trees of the forest are still bare except for their brilliant scarves of emerald green. However, if you look closely, you will see signs of spring. Tiny buds and blossoms peek out to see if it is safe to awaken from their long winter's nap.

I love the quiet, the stillness. Winter is peaceful, meditative, and calm. It is beauty with a touch of melancholy which touches my soul in a way that no other season does. Wouldn't those mosses and ferns and bare branches be just gorgeous with a dusting of snow? I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
