Sometime ago I encountered an enchanting description of a small Japanese village’s winter festival that celebrated the way plants catch snow.  The novel’s author called the snow that was captured in nooks and crannies, branches and seedheads, branches and buds, ‘Snow Flowers’.  Ever since I look at fresh snow differently.

  1. Nice post. I learn something much harder on different blogs everyday. Most commonly it is stimulating to share content off their writers and use a little something there. I’d plan to use some with all the content on my small blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll supply link onto your web blog. Appreciate you sharing.
