Wending Our Way Winterward. November 8, 2011

A dried basket of Queen Anne’s Lace emits a wind-driven thrum as it lords it over a meadow of grasses already laid down by our recent preview of winter:

It was 60 degrees here today, and I can’t help thinking that this field hit the mat sooner than it should have.  But then, two feet of snow in October will do that to you.

That’s from Elliot, in Williamstown.


It’s A-Comin’! November 26, 2008

I told my Siamese Cousin Bob that I’d share my snow with him when it got here.

And while it’s presently a bit thin, and I’m not yet breaking out the snow-shoes, the visage of Winter is pressing against my window.

Ice-Fog on the hills:


Thin snow on the road:


Ponds freezing in the pre-dawn air:


It’s not fully Winter, and could indeed backslide into some sort of Autumnal malaise, but still, it smells of ice and thin sun and sleep.

So be it.  I’m ready for winter.
