Tribute to a Magical Winter


And by "magical," I mean long, cold, bitter, miserable, blah. But it has come to my attention that it is now mid-March, and this means that spring is just around the corner (right??). So here's a look back at a couple picturesque "tree" moments from this endless winter. The above photo was taken out my kitchen window on a particularly pixie-land-fairytale sort of morning. (Also, introducing my Hipstamatic obsession).




I went snowboarding in Vermont (above), and spent a good deal of the time at the top of the mountain, just looking around like a kid in a candy store. Seriously. I think these trees were plucked right off a german gingerbread house. I couldn't get enough!!







And always, I adore the beauty of trees against the backdrop of my beloved Brooklyn or Manhattan. How many blizzards did we have this year? I don't even remember. But the trees were perfect.

Also, a warm, exciting welcome to all my new friends and followers! I've had so many new visitors and comments over the past 6 months, and it makes me so happy that Trees, if you please can bring delight to others. And of course, my dedicated old friends who have been waiting with baited breath (yeah right) for a new post. This is for you.

xoxoxo.

Great to see you posting again. And yes, the snow laden evergreens do look like German gingerbread trees.

Truly great photos! We saw quite a bit of tree damage from the snow here on Cape Cod this winter. I'm really thankful that we are slowly pulling out of this and heading into spring again.

I really like the little orange cone in the Vermont pic - somehow adds something important.

I like your blog.
I found it by accident by clicking on "Next Blog" at the top of my own blog.
Next time, I'll return to you deliberately.
Greetings from Boston, where so many of my beloved arborvitae were ravaged by heavy snowfall this past winter. Sigh.

baited breath for sure, I love these photos. Winter in Brooklyn really must be magical to look upon yet, as you said, miserable to live in. Cheers

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
