Winter is upon as
Balls lay unused among dead leaves
Guarded by the Gnomesman
Who has stood the strength of winter
And shall prevail once again!

And then it snowed!

Adding a bit of clarity to death around.

Tiny fingers cupping clouds of sugar.

Clouding death.

And still purple strives.

From Ugly Beautiful Brattleboro

As does the Gnomesman of Winter.

  1. Beautiful photos. I love the hydrangeas! Also the puffy things that look like popped corn, the red and orange berry thingies, and the fluff-n-stuff. 😉 xoxo
