All the Thanksgiving decorations are put away and the house looks a little bare, but not for long. Slowly I will transform our little house into an homage to Winter and Yule and a bit of Christmas thrown in. Probably won't do a big ole Christmas Tree since we have two rascally kittens who would love to wreck havoc with something like that. A table top tree will be fine.
The snow has melted away, but the north wind doth blow. It's fun to spot all the bird and squirrel nests in the tall trees, not to mention seeing the various hawks who are no longer hidden, as they scan for prey.
Still not adjusted to the early sunsets; what about you? Although a winter sunset has a certain beauty with muted colors reflecting the cold winds and temperatures.
I think of the very tall evergreens that stand around the neighborhood as sentinels. Watching and guarding, offering protection for the wildlife, as the soft whooshing sound of the wind through their piney branches reminds me of a winter song.
Enjoying and appreciating Nature during this Season can be a little difficult. You just have to know what to look for. Nature is always ready to greet you.
Must fly. Blessed Be!
