Bits and blobs of leftover snow clung to branches. There hadn’t been much… less than an inch… but the temperature hovered near zero (celsius) most of the week so it was slow to melt.
Then, just as the last trace disappeared from barren branches, the sky sprinkled fine snow and dusted everything fresh white again.
The winter’s first brief visit from a Spotted Towhee completed my day. A flick of his tail and he was gone again, but the fleeting gift left me smiling.
Every good and perfect gift is from above
and comes down from the Father who made the heavenly lights,
in whom there is no inconsistency or shifting shadow.

Beautiful, Carol! Thank you for these gorgeous photos of God’s beautiful world!
Ah Carol, I so love your photographs and the delight of the spiritual meaning in them. Thanks again … makes me long for a winter’s snow 🙂
Ah, so lovely. Looks more like spring than winter though.
Thanks to each of you for your comments. Joylene, you’re just jealous! You need to move south again and enjoy our abundance of winter rain. 😉
